Titled the AVG LinkScanner technology, this process does not slow down your browsing experience but does provide complete coverage against malicious websites.

In addition, for those who often perform search queries online, the AVG program automatically ranks each search result from all of the popular search engines (Bing, Yahoo!, and Google) with a square colour icon that alerts you to the safety of each result based on traffic light warning signals. (Red is danger, green is safe, orange/yellow is caution may contain some links or malicious links) This extra layer of protection helps to protect your entire browsing experience and adds an extra security for browsers who heed its recommendations.
