The Avast VPN app is simple, easy to use and has a variety of security features. It’s missing important features, such as split tunneling and killing buttons. Additionally, it doesn’t come with a built-in Ad-blocker. It’s a fantastic overall service, but there are many other services that provide better features for the same price.

The Windows client comes with a nice user interface that is familiar to anyone who’s utilized Avast’s anti-virus software. It’s easy to use and intuitive. The burger menu on the top right leads you to “Settings.” You can connect automatically or manually by clicking the Change Location button. You’ll then see the list of servers that are categorized by region and function (P2P or streaming).

Avast VPN provides a high level of security due to its 256-bit AES encryption, which blocks WebRTC leaks as well as DNS leaks. It also supports the extremely secure OpenVPN protocol and has beta support for WireGuard which allows you to connect to locations that would otherwise block VPNs. It’s an excellent option for those who have intermittent internet connectivity.

Avast’s privacy policies are more transparent than other policies and it doesn’t record your IP address, or the websites you visit. It does keep track of the amount of information that was uploaded and downloaded during your session.

Avast VPN offers a free 7-day trial. It doesn’t require a credit card. Then you can choose one three or two-year plans for up to five devices at the same time. It accepts PayPal, Perfect Money and credit cards but doesn’t offer cryptocurrencies or cash payment.
