avast free review windows
The new interface from Avast is nicely laid-out, with clear demarcation between its various elements as well as simple blue icons (with orange accents from the company logo) to identify the suite’s features. The homepage lets you run a scan, and then turn on the VPN as well as shortcuts to a couple of useful tools for optimisation of your system are also available. However the fact that a lot of click resources the other features offered by Avast are hidden under the “Explore” tab is a little frustrating.
Installation is easy, and you’re not guilt-tripped into opting for the free version, although the full scan will reveal “advanced issues” that require paying for premium security. This is a little sneaky. Especially when you click the Resolve button and are taken to a page which asks you to sign to sign up for Avast Premium security. Avast also sells user data as revealed in a 2020 article from Which? magazine.
