Avast’s free review windows
Avast’s interface is easy to use, with a clear separation between the various elements. The blue icons are simple to use, and have orange accents that match the logo of the company. On the homepage, you can run an examination, activate the VPN and access shortcuts to a variety of less-than-useful tools for optimizing your system. However, the fact that most of Avast’s other features are hidden away in the “Explore” tab is somewhat frustrating.
The installation process is simple and you’re never tempted into opting for the free version. However, an extensive scan could reveal “advanced issues” that can only be resolved by paying for premium security. This is a bit sneaky, especially when the Resolve option takes you to a page that asks you to sign to Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast sells user data as well, according to an Which? article published in 2020. magazine.
