Blazing fast

Avira has one of the smallest footprints in the industry – with virus definition updates 2-5 lighter than most other antivirus products. Unlike many others, our protection doesn’t slow you down nor hog your system’s resources.


We’re not from Silicon Valley. But we can protect you from it.

We don’t access your personal data. With our industrial grade encryption, we never will. We place privacy over profit, so we never sell your personal data. We collect the bare minimum information about you so we can deliver a localized experience for you when you’re using our products.
