Running Avast or AVG anti-virus? You're being tracked.

Post by kasapres »

If you are or ever were running Avast or AVG security programs, your internet activity has been tracked and that information has been sold:

My suggestion?: Run Windows Defender as your anti-malware program and do frequent scans with Malwarebytes. Or purchase the 'pro' version of Malwarebytes to replace whichever 'resident' A/V program you are currently using.
