Step 2 (out of 4) – Select the Level of Protection
After clicking on any of the Activation buttons you will get a screen where you can select between free (standard) and paid (complete) protection. Basically you will see a comparison between Avast Free Antivirus, and Avast Internet Security.
If you want free protection, click on the grey ‘Select‘ button in the ‘Avast Free Antivirus‘ column. However, upgrading to premium protection is definitely worth it. Especially for the great 60% discount you are getting.
Obviously with complete protection (Internet Security) you will get much better protection. Especially if you are shopping or banking online, you will find it useful and protective. On the other hand with the free version you will also get a decent level of protection. It’s totally up to you whether you want to invest $20 a year or use the free antivirus.
