Everyone could stand to save a little more cash. Simple things like eating dinner at home more often than going to your favorite restaurant or skipping that daily $6 latte can really add up. You’ll have your next vacation paid for in no time.

But you really need to be careful to not cut corners on the wrong things in life. Like antivirus protection.

There are plenty of free antivirus programs on the market, but protecting your devices takes more than basic defenses. Not only that, but those free antivirus programs could be selling your data or worse.

You can’t always trust free programs

We recently learned that popular antivirus developer Avast has been collecting user data behind the scenes and selling it to the highest bidder. Things like your web browsing history, shopping habits and online searches were all for sale. Tap or click here for the frightening details.

That’s why you can’t take a chance using just any free antivirus protection. Even names you’ve heard of and trust can engage in shady practices. If legitimate sites can’t always be trusted, consider the lesser-known companies. These could even present “anti-virus programs” that actually plant malware on your device instead.

You need to know the company you’re choosing has smart, robust tools to combat hackers and scammers. More importantly, you need protection from a company you can trust.

We recommend our sponsor, TotalAV. With TotalAV, you’ll get free antivirus protection, but they also offer so much more. It’s a suite of 22 security tools that protect all of your devices. Kim calls it the “Best security suite for 2020.”
