Security on a Tablet?

Dear computer lady,

I learn a lot from you but I have a question.

How do you get security on a tablet? Can I get free AVG on my tablet?

I have it on my laptop, or doesn’t that work on tablets?

Thank you very much for all your help.


Dear Carol,

AVG actually has a page of free and paid security apps that can be used on several different types of tablets.

You can find the entire list on their website here:

If you use your tablet to go to the website, you should be able to select your type of tablet, then click on the link to get the app.

At this time, they have actual antivirus programs for Android tablets, and a couple of web safe browsers for apple tablets.
