The avast Ultimate is an antivirus program that provides a complete protection package for tablets, smartphones and computers against spyware and malware. It also protects them from viruses, ransomware and other malware. The suite includes powerful security features like advanced anti-tracking, the use of a VPN to ensure privacy online as well as the best cleaning and tune-up tools. Its advanced malware engine earned the highest detection rate during my tests, and it even nailed some phishing attacks that could get through the default protections.

This is the best overall package that Avast provides, combining their top security and performance features into a comprehensive suite. Its sophisticated antivirus cybersecurity defends against all types of malware including ransomware. It also includes the VPN to ensure the highest level of privacy online and top tuneup and cleaning tools and a password management tool. Its Wi-Fi Inspector tool scans your business or home network for vulnerabilities and its AntiTrack feature is designed to stop online trackers from collecting and distributing your personal data.

All of these features can be accessed through both Windows and Android devices. Multi-device licenses let you activate the program on up to 10 different platforms simultaneously. Avast also has a single-device plan and the more specialized Avast Cleanup Premium feature.

Avast’s security suite is user-friendly and user-friendly. Its multi-device licenses make it a great choice for families, and the free version is adequate to defend against malware and other threats. Its customer service is good, although it takes just a few steps to reach assistance from a human.
