But the privacy issue of AVG worried me a lot.They sells user data.I found MT members reaction on this:https://malwaretips.com/threads/avast-acquires-antivirus-maker-avg.61184/#post-521199

But they'll be owned by Avast so that would obviously change.

This is interesting, I'm assuming Avast would adopt some of AVG's technologies, however, Avast seems to be superior in terms of innovation. I'm going to watch closely and see what happens after the deal is finalized.

Hello!

So, is there a chance that both AVs become one in future?

Thanks!

That's what always happens in the end. I find it very unlikely that they will run both independently and only share useful data about malware between each other. That would be highly inefficient.

In unity there is strength.
Maybe - but often it's better to have business competition  ;D

Combining the two, should result in one that's better than the rest of the competition.  :)
