Michael McKinnon, security advisor at AVG (AU/NZ), said: "This new feature is all about putting control of online privacy in the consumer's hands. AVG helps provide Internet users with peace of mind - and today, making users aware of issues with online privacy is a logical extension of its community-centric platform.
"We believe all Internet users are entitled to know how their online data is collected and used - and they should have possible solutions available. AVG Technologies continues to work on innovative technologies focused at supporting Internet users to protect and stay in control of their own online privacy," he added.
The service pack also delivers Wi-Fi Guard, which generates a pop-up alert when the computer attempts to connect to a never-before-used public WiFi access point. This is to help guard against rogue access points set up in locations where genuine Wi-Fi services are offered (eg cafes and hotels), with the aim of eavesdropping on traffic.
