AVG Family Safety: Protecting Your Facebook, LindIn, Google+ Networks


AVG disrupted the anti-virus market years ago. But now we’re moving from desktops and laptops to tablets and smartphones. AVG has been changing their models to make the desktop last longer. But AVG is also getting into your social networks with the Family version.

AVG wants your family to be secure online. This app will allow you to suggest settings to your children and if they implemented. You can even control settings if needed.

The dashboard will have a green-amber-red light that will change when you need to be aware of something. If you have already reviewed the setting and decide not to take it, the light will turn green.

AVG also has a “Wifi – Do not Track” option, where you can block some of the data that companies collect when you don’t know it (where you walk in a store, where you stop and spend time, etc).

This software covers Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn. AVG will also give you an idea of what you are worth to these social networks.

Best part – Its all FREE — Visit  for more information.
