Browsing the web, downloading music, watching movies, it all has its risks and theres nothing worse than doing this without any antivirus protection. For the home users who are on a budget, there free alternatives such as AVG Free Edition however, why is it free? Is there a catch? Yes, and its a BIG one.

AVG collects browsing data and sells it to company’s who will use it for aggressive marketing. Its a scary thought really, entering your phone number into a website and then you’ve got David from Microsoft in India calling you explaining you’ve got viruses, PPI claims companies harassing you as well as those annoying ”We’ll beat your electricity bills” calls. This is the worst case scenario, but its easily possible with companies wanting to purchase your data all the time.

Its free because it watches you. AVG.
