avast free review windows
The new interface from Avast is nicely laid out, with clear distinctions between its various components and simple blue icons (with orange accents derived from the company logo) to identify the suite’s capabilities. The homepage allows you to run a scan and switch on the VPN and also shortcuts to several less-than-utilized tools for system optimization are also available. The fact that Avast’s most useful features are hidden within the “Explore tab” is a bit frustrating.
Installation is easy, and you’re never tempted into choosing the free version, although the full scan will reveal “advanced issues” that will only be solved by paying for premium security. It’s a bit shady particularly when the Resolve option takes you to a page asking you to sign to Avast’s Premium Security plan. Avast also sells user information which was revealed in a 2020 article from Which? magazine.
