Avast’s free review windows

The new interface of Avast is well designed, with clear delineation between its various elements as well as easy-to-use blue icons (with orange accents from the logo of the company) to distinguish the suite’s capabilities. On the homepage, you can perform an examination, activate the VPN and also access shortcuts to a number of not-so-utilized tools for system optimization. The fact that Avast’s most important features are hidden away in the “Explore tab” is quite frustrating.

Installation is easy, and you’re not obliged to use the free version. However, a thorough scan will detect “advanced issues” that require premium security to resolve. This is a bit sneaky and especially when the Resolve option takes you to a web page asking you to sign up for Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast sells users’ data, as well according to a Which? article published in 2020. magazine.
