Why does AVG password protection have access to the passwords stored on Firefox and then notifies me if my password has been compromised? Isn't this a security issue when avg password protection can access my saved passwords and can this be stopped or prevented (without me uninstalling AVG)? AVG enables the password protection application by default and you can't disable it or uninstall it without uninstalling the AVG itself. Also no AVG Plugin or extension is installed in my browser.

I recently received a request from AVG to have an add-on - AVG Online Security - which will protect against phishing and malware sites. There was a note from Firefox that Firefox does not monitor this add-on.

I use AVG Virus Protection - free copy - and it seems to be doing its job; although, I have been thinking about buying the software.

Has anyone used this add-on? Is it all right to install? Is it necessary to install? Since I changed internet service providers, I have not seen much in the way of phishing and AVG Virus Protection prevented me from accessing two websites it said were questionable.
