Avira is a better value for money and its most expensive price plan costs less than Trend Micro’s cheapest. However, some Trend Micro features are worth the price, particularly if you have children using social media. Similarly, if you’re not using a Windows device, you’ll need Trend Micro\'s \"Maximum Security\" plan.
