Avast’s free review windows
The new interface for Avast is well laid out, with clear distinctions between its various elements as well as easy-to-use blue icons (with orange accents from the logo of the company) to identify the suite’s features. The homepage allows you to conduct a scan and turn on the VPN and also shortcuts to a few less-than-utilized tools for system optimization are also available. However, the fact that most of Avast’s other features are hidden within the “Explore” tab is a bit frustrating.
The installation process is simple, and you’re not obliged to go with the free one. However, a full scan will identify “advanced problems” that require premium security in order to fix. This is a bit sneaky. Particularly when you click on the Resolve option, and you’re directed to a page where you are asked to sign to sign up for Avast Premium security. Avast also sells user information as revealed in a story published in 2020 by Which? magazine.
