AVG Internet Security 2018
AVG fuses AVAST technology to create a powerful security suite

AVG Internet Security 2018 is the companies second release since the company was acquired by AVAST.

What the security aims to achieve is blend the best technologies from each company. For example, the engine is AVAST, but the "Software Analyzer" heuristics come from AVG, and you also get AVG's ZEN device manager.

The new release gets real-time protection against zero-day malware via "CyberCapture, the company’s proprietary, cloud-based smart file scanner."

A new online shield blocks access to malicious links and websites.

You're now able to install and run AVG Internet Security alongside other security products. The program automatically installs using a new "Passive Mode" to avoid any conflicts or issues. 

A new Secure DNS feature verifies a website's address using secure DNS servers to prevent redirections to fake sites.

The program still offers all the regular malware detection and blocking features of previous editions, and a revamped interface makes it easier to explore and use.

The new "Software Updater" tool will check for new updates to installed software and will either recommend you upgrade or will download and install automatically, in the background.

It's worth noting that AVG Internet Security 2018 now includes an "unlimited" licence when you purchase the commercial version. This enables you to install and activate any device you own, including Mac and Android devices.

Verdict:

The new AVG Internet Security has some welcome new features and we'll be interested to see how (or if) they translate into improved protection.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.81
