AVG LinkScanner provides an advanced layer of security against fast-moving, invisible web threats, and hacked web sites. It verifies the safety of web pages you visit, and of links returned from web searches (Google, Yahoo! and MSN), so you know how safe/unsafe a page is at the time you attempt to click on it.
AVG LinkScanner is already part of all of AVG?s award-winning security products, protecting 80m people Worldwide. Now it’s available on its own to run alongside your current anti-virus software and provide an additional, invisible layer of protection that lets you search and surf safely.
Features: Real-time scanning of links you click on, so you can be sure you are protected from the latest hacked or exploited websites.
Emphasis on analysis of each web page you visit instead of the web site. Automatic upgrades whenever the threat intelligence network finds a new threat.
