Avast free review windows
The new interface of Avast is well laid-out, with clear demarcation between its various components 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 perform scans, switch on the VPN and also access shortcuts to a few not-so-useful tools for system optimization. However, the fact that most of Avast’s other features are hidden away under the « Explore » tab is somewhat disconcerting.
The installation process is simple and you’re not guilt-tripped to choose the free version, but the full scan may reveal « advanced issues » that require paying for premium security. This is a bit sneaky and especially when the Resolve button redirects you to a webpage that asks you to sign to Avast’s Premium Security plan. Avast sells user data as well according to a Which? article published in 2020. magazine.
