AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --AVG Technologies
N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and
optimization to 172 million active users, today announces the availability of
AVG Web TuneUp to optimize Web browsing for Windows® users, providing
protection while searching and surfing the Web, cleaning browsing tracks, and
enabling users to control their online privacy.

AVG Web TuneUp works seamlessly in the background and requires minimal space
to operate. Users experience a slim interface with one single button providing
protection and privacy without interfering with browsing activity.

Initially available in English for Chrome™ or Firefox® browsers, AVG Web
TuneUp is built on a powerful search engine with additional AVG security
capabilities that enhances browser performance by detecting harmful or
invasive websites and automatically protecting your Windows PC. This free
browser add-on is the latest addition to AVG's comprehensive range of free
online security products providing users with enhanced privacy, protection and
performance for today's most popular digital devices.

"The Web today is filled with websites that contain hidden threats or cookies
that track your online activity," said Andrew Reid, General Manager, Platform,
AVG Technologies. "AVG Web TuneUp allows you to take back control of your
privacy so that you only share data with organizations you trust. Performance
of Web browsers is also critical to consumers," added Reid. "Speed and ease of
use enable you to reach your online destination more quickly with the
knowledge that your digital safety will not be compromised."

AVG Web TuneUp provides three key benefits:

  oProtection while searching and surfing – the Site Safety feature provides
    an additional security layer while searching and surfing to protect you
    from infected websites. It checks every page before you even click on a
    link to make sure your identity, your personal information and your PC are
    protected and then alerts you if the sites are deemed unsafe.
  oBrowser cleaning capability – the Browser Cleaner feature provides 1-click
    cleaning of your online activity including browsing history, online
    cookies, download history and saved forms.
  oPrivacy control - the Do Not Track feature shows you which websites are
    collecting data on your online activities and allows you to take back
    control of your privacy by giving you the choice to block ad network
    tracking, social network tracking and Web analytics
