Avast Internet Security Review
Avast Internet Security has one of the strongest antivirus programs available. It offers real-time protection against a range of threats, such as viruses, spyware and ransomware. It also includes additional features, such as firewalls, email spam filtering, and a secure browser.
The malware engine of the program received an outstanding score in my tests. It was successful in detecting a range of threats including ransomware and cryptojackers. Its web security is excellent; it catches phishing websites that are not detected by Chrome or Firefox’s default protection. The firewall is a layer of security that stops hackers from gaining access to devices, regardless of whether they’re connected to your home network.
Avast’s privacy tools come with the free Avast SecureLine VPN, which secures your connection and protects your connection when you connect to Wi-Fi in public areas. It also blocks intrusive trackers, and provides you with additional protection against spyware. The Password Manager allows you to securely keep track of your passwords and manage them, which can be an issue for cybercriminals looking to steal passwords from vulnerable users.
Avast’s user base is highly loyal, so it is able to charge a small amount more for its software than some of its competitors. It’s crucial to ask any business that collects your personal information about how they intend to use it before you sign up. In 2020, Which? magazine found out that Avast was selling data on the websites its users visited The company later apologized for its breach of privacy.
