The mobile app from Avast VPN is decent, but basic when compared to other providers. Apple’s App Store is the only place to buy a subscription for its iOS app. There is an unpaid version of the PC and Mac client that does not require payment information. If you do buy, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
The apps are easy to use and stylish. It only takes one tap to connect to a web server and to change location, you can choose a country on the home screen. The apps have a limited selection of options and settings however novice users will likely appreciate the simplicity. It’s an added bonus that they’re almost identical across all devices.
In the past few months, Avast has been improving its VPN offerings. The apps are now more user-friendly and the company has added a robust 24/7 customer support system, and also simplified its three-tier pricing structure. It has also made significant technological improvements, such as adding its Mimic protocol and introducing speedier connection times.
Avast SecureLine offers a reliable VPN to use on a daily basis at a reasonable cost. Its features include a kill switch which blocks data from being transferred if the connection is lost. It also supports multiple protocols including OpenVPN on TCP and UDP IKEv2 on IPsec for MacOS and IPSec on SSL/TLS for Android. It supports 256-bit AES encrypted connection that can be used with up to 10 devices at once.
