While the information mentioned above seems alarmingly personal, the cyber security company promises to keep these data anonymous to protect the privacy its loyal consumers enjoy. AVG has been automatically anonymizing identifiable personal information, including location, IP address, user accounts, phone numbers, etc. and will continue to do so in the future. Needless to say, the firm is still committed to a mission to provide a trusted brand of security and privacy.
“We provide products and services to help you secure your data, devices, and personal privacy. We use data to improve those products and services; provide support; send notifications, offers, and promotions; and to make money from our free offerings so that we can continue to offer them for free,” the British cyber security expert explained.
