Avast antivirus has a complete set of features packaged in a simple package. Its malware engine scored an outstanding score during my tests, and its web protection was effective in identifying phishing sites that got past Chrome and Firefox’s default detection systems. The performance scanner did a good job of keeping its impact on speed of the system to the minimum. In fact Avast’s performance scan was more effective at decreasing CPU usage than any other program I tested.
Apart from the malware protection feature and performance scan, Avast offers a host of other tools. Avast One is the only one that offers the VPN with photo vaults, as well as a tool to monitor data breaches. The security toolkit also has the sandbox to run applications and the ability to scan routers for weaknesses.
If you ever encounter issues, the Avast support website offers a comprehensive knowledge base. The search function makes finding the answers to frequently asked questions easy. If you’re not able to find an answer you can use the Avast forum is an excellent resource for getting help from other users.
