Avast antivirus offers a fantastic range of features within an easy-to-use key largo song appear package. In my tests the malware engine got a perfect score. Its web security was also effective in spotting phishing websites which slipped through the default detection capabilities of both Firefox and Chrome systems. The performance scanner did a good job of keeping its impact on system speed to a minimum. In fact, Avast’s performance scanning was more effective in reducing the CPU use than any other program I tried.

Avast also offers a number of other tools. These include a password manager and a VPN (exclusive to Avast One), a photo vault and a data breach monitoring feature. Its security toolkit includes a sandbox for running applications and a scanner for routers to check for weaknesses.

Avast provides a comprehensive support website with a knowledge base for when you encounter issues. Its search function makes it easy to find answers to frequently asked questions. If you can’t find an answer, the Avast forum is a good source of assistance from other users.

Avast might claim that it has stopped selling data about its users, but the history of this practice is still fresh in the minds of many consumers’ minds. In January of 2020, PCMag and Motherboard revealed that Avast sold the location and other personal data of its users to third parties through its Jumpshot subsidiary. Avast has ended this practice and asks for users to opt in when installing its antivirus software for desktops. Its privacy policy states that data from consumers is « stripped and removed from identification » before being shared with third party.
