Everyone should protect their PC with an antivirus that will keep them safe from online threats. But not all antivirus is created equal: if you want malware protection against everything the Internet can throw at you without sacrificing the speed or power of your PC in the process, then you need a lightweight, easy-to-use antivirus that's designed from the bottom-up with convenience in mind.
With the new Nitro update, Avast Free Antivirus is faster and lighter than ever before. Faster updates, composed of large monthly patches combined with hourly micro-updates mean your Avast is always up to date. And, because Avast now performs a significant portion of analysis in the Cloud, it means it's lighter on your PC's resources than ever before. It also comes with proprietary cutting-edge technology called CyberCapture, which identifies and analyzes any mysterious files you might download from the net. It then sends these to the Avast Threat Labs for analysis in real-time, letting you know if they're dangerous.
But that's not all. With the Nitro update, all users, free or paid, get access to the world's most secure browser, Avast SafeZone. SafeZone offers a wide range of features that allow users to browse the net with more speed, convenience, and security than ever before. Avoid annoying ads with Ad Blocker, watch your favorite videos offline with our Video Downloader, and bank or shop online with the added protection of Bank Mode, which isolates your browser so no spy or hacker can see what you're up to.
