Avast’s free review windows
The new interface of Avast is well laid-out, with clear demarcation between its different elements and 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 run scans, turn on the VPN and www.antivirus-software.org/totalav-review also access shortcuts to a few not-so-useful tools for system optimization. However the fact that a lot of Avast’s other features are buried away under the “Explore” tab is a little frustrating.
Installation is simple and you’re not obliged to use the free version. However, a full scan will identify “advanced issues” that require premium security in order to fix. This is a bit shady. Particularly when you click the Resolve option and are directed to a website where you are asked to sign to sign up for Avast Premium security. Avast also sells user information, which was uncovered in a 2020 article by Which? magazine.
