Seems they offer beta internet security for free

Anyone ever tried? Is it possibility or threat? It seems malwarebytes already giving free access to beta products and now avg does this too

By using beta products, you risk running into unknown problems. You'll be doing them a favor because then they'll get more reports from crash dumps/manual support requests which helps them resolve issues quickly before pushing new updates out to the rest of the user-base. Either way, AVG will continue to make a lot of money from the ordinary home user and enterprise sales.

Bear in mind, AVG was acquired by AVAST a long time ago. If you are not a fan of AVAST, or distrust them, then AVG won't be for you. If you do not mind AVG having been acquired by AVAST, it could be a good deal for you as long as you understand the risks with beta testing security software... the last thing you want is for it to stop working when you need it the most.

The cf my back, but it seems unless im using their firewall i wont benefit much from using free compared to the internet security so i would be better with free + cf than with internet security

AVG seems to be ad free wich is huge benefit comparing to avast
