Avast review windows for free
The new interface of Avast is well laid out, with clear distinctions between its various elements and simple blue icons (with orange accents derived from the company www.antivirus-software.org/windows-defender-review logo) to distinguish the suite’s capabilities. On the homepage, you can run scans, switch on the VPN and get shortcuts to a few not-so-useful tools for optimizing your system. However the fact that the majority of Avast’s other features are hidden away under the “Explore” tab is a little frustrating.
Installation is simple and you’re not obligated to select the free version. However, a thorough scan will identify “advanced issues” that require premium security in order to solve. This feels a little sneaky and especially when the Resolve button leads you to a web page asking you to sign for Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast also sells user information that was exposed in a story published in 2020 by Which? magazine.
