Last Customer Reviews: AVG vs MacKeeper

Eric Aldridge
AVG Antivirus is simply the best thing! It works wonderfully and does not put any pressure on the system. I personally highly recommend this software.
Emily
Is this program good for Wi-Fi? I mean, does it protect my devices against unauthorized Wi-Fi hacks?
David L. Henry
I have a question for the reviewer. Did you try the AVG free edition? Does it have the same functionality?
Karen Jonas
MacKeeper is a hoax!!

This turned out to be a horrible product that I'm sorry I purchased. It wasn't on my MacBook very long and resuted in freezing my computer. I attempted to restart my computer over a three to four day period with no success. I then spent 4 to 5 hours with Apple Support having them look at the situation. MacKeeper used so much capacity it created this issue. This is an expensive lesson in getting sales pressure and being lied to about the program. DO NOT IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE ADD THIS TO YOUR COMPUTER!

As of today, Jan. 22/2020, this is what has happened: My original license was to expire May 2/2020. I buy a new license, today (to take advantage of a reduced price), with an expiry of 366 days (Jan. 22/2021). They have now combined the above 2 licenses and now they advise they will both expire April 30/2020, in 98 days????????? And on top of this, trying to activate the new license, was quite a rigamarole going through their support. I am waiting for a response, and if they do not correct the situation, I will cancel and request full refund.
