LinkScanner® Active Surf-Shield checks web pages for threats at the only time that matters – when you’re about to click that link.
There is a new security component included in the AVG 8.5 Free Edition, which provides the AVG Search-Shield and AVG Active Surf-Shield functionality. Its purpose is to scan all results of the supported Internet search engines (Yahoo!, Google, MSN and Baidu), and provide you with an evaluation of a safety level of each website found. At the same time, the LinkScanner also checks all Internet addresses typed into the address bar of your browser, or linked on other websites.
