02 Oct Avast Free Review Windows
Free review windows of avast
The interface of Avast is easy to use, with a clear separation between its various elements. The blue icons are easy to use and come with orange accents that match the logo of the company. The homepage allows you to conduct a scan and turn on the VPN, while shortcuts to some not-very-useful system optimisation tools are also available. The fact that the most important features are hidden in the «Explore tab» is infuriating.
Installation is simple and you’re not required to select the free version. However, a thorough scan will identify «advanced problems» that require premium security in order to resolve. This feels a little sneaky, especially when the Resolve option takes you to a page asking you to sign to Avast’s Premium Security plan. Avast also sells user information that was exposed in a 2020 article by Which? magazine.
