Avast free review windows
Avast’s interface is easy to use, with a clear separation between its various elements. The blue icons are simple to use and come with orange accents that match the logo of the company. The homepage allows you to run a scan and switch on the VPN, while shortcuts to a few not-very-useful system optimisation tools are also available. The fact that Avast’s most valuable features are hidden in the “Explore tab” is infuriating.
Installation is straightforward, and you’re not forced into opting for the free version, though an extensive scan could reveal “advanced issues” that will only be solved by paying for premium security. This is a bit sneaky. Particularly when you click on the Resolve button and are taken to a page where you are asked to sign up for Avast Premium security. Avast also sells user information that was exposed in a 2020 article by Which? magazine.
