The Avast VPN app is simple, easy to use and comes with a number of good security features. It doesn’t have essential features like split tunneling and the kill button. Additionally, it doesn’t come with a built-in Ad-blocker. It’s a fantastic overall service, but there are other services that provide better features for a lower price.
Anyone who has used Avast antivirus software is familiar with the Windows client’s inviting, easy to use interface. It’s user-friendly and understand. The burger menu on the right hand side will take you to “Settings.” You can connect either manually or automatically by clicking the Change Location button. There’s a list of servers categorized by region and function (P2P or streaming).
Avast VPN provides strong security thanks to its 256-bit AES encryption, which stops WebRTC leaks as well as DNS leaks. It also supports the extremely secure OpenVPN protocol, and offers beta support for WireGuard which allows you to connect in locations that might otherwise block VPNs. It’s a great choice for those who have intermittent internet connectivity.
Avast’s privacy policies are more transparent than the other ones and it doesn’t log your IP address or websites you visit. However, it records the amount of data uploaded and downloaded over your session.
Avast VPN offers a free 7-day trial, which doesn’t require an account with a credit card. You can then select one three or two-year plans for up to five devices at the same time. It accepts credit cards, PayPal and Perfect Money but does not offer cryptocurrencies or cash payments.
