Avast’s free review windows
Avast’s new interface is well laid-out, with clear demarcation between its various components and easy-to-use blue icons (with orange accents from the company logo) to distinguish the suite’s features. The homepage lets you run a scan and switch on the VPN, while shortcuts to several useful tools for optimisation is mcafee a good antivirus of your system are also available. The fact that the most valuable features are hidden within the “Explore tab” is frustrating.
Installation is easy, and you’re not pushed into a free version. However, an extensive scan could reveal “advanced issues” that can only be resolved by paying for premium security. This feels a little sneaky and especially when the Resolve option takes you to a web page asking you to sign to Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast also sells user information, which was uncovered in a 2020 article from Which? magazine.
