Avast free review windows
The new interface from Avast is nicely laid out, with clear distinctions between its various components and easy-to-use blue icons (with orange accents from the company logo) to help you identify the suite’s features. On the homepage, you can run a scan, turn on the VPN and access shortcuts to a variety of less-than-useful tools for optimizing your system. However the fact that a lot of Avast’s other features are buried away in the “Explore” tab can be a bit frustrating.
Installation is straightforward, and you’re not guilt-tripped to choose the free version, but the full scan will reveal “advanced issues” that can only be resolved by paying for premium security. This is a bit sneaky. Especially when you click on the Resolve button and are directed to a website which asks you to sign to sign up for Avast Premium security. Avast sells user data as well according to a Which? article published in 2020. magazine.
