Security Announcement: AVG to sell customer data
Important security announcement for AVG AntiVirus customers
Fortunately, AVG have claimed that there will be no personal identifying information such as names, emails, addresses or payment details in an effort to protect users from being targeted individually.
However, depending on the system they use to anonymise the information, it is possible to de-anonymise data. It is also disconcerting to think that a company who specialise in providing 200 million users with protection are harvesting information with the plan to sell it on, even if they do not go ahead!
If you are currently using AVG and would like to change to an AntiVirus solution which will not sell your data to anyone (personal OR non-personal) get in contact with us now!
