Avast Antivirus Review
avast is among the top security suites that are rated by users in the field. It is strong on desktop and mobile device protection as well as scanning for malware. It also offers a host of other features like an anti-theft system and software updater. It also comes with sandboxing technology that scans for unknown files before they are loaded on your device or computer.
The interface of Avast is simple and clean. Its centralized dashboard displays all the tools the suite can provide, with clear icons for each. The menu bar and settings are clearly marked as well as any new issues appear in a message tab on the dashboard. Avast’s comprehensive scan has small impact on performance, and the suite scores high in its security tests against a variety of kinds of malware, including ransomware.
Avast, however, gained attention in the late of 2019 and into 2021 for acquiring and selling user data via a feature named Jumpshot. Fortunately, Avast has stopped this practice. It states that it no longer will ever collect any user data to use for marketing.
Avast offers a variety of subscription plans for individuals and companies. The basic home plan offers protection for up to five devices. Paid plans provide more coverage and additional features like a password manager or ad blocking. Avast’s business plans provide more flexibility, as well as additional security features, such as encryption of web traffic, USB port monitoring to protect against unauthorised storage on removable devices and a virtualprivate network for secure browsing.
