Avast’s free review windows
Avast’s interface is easy to use, with a clear separation between the different 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 few not-so-useful tools for system optimization. The fact that the most important features are hidden in the “Explore tab” is infuriating.
Installation is easy, and you are not forced to go with the free one. However, a thorough scan will reveal “advanced problems” that require premium security to resolve. This is a bit sneaky. Especially when you click the Resolve option and are directed to a webpage which asks you to sign up for Avast Premium security. Avast also sells user information which was revealed in a 2020 article by Which? magazine.
