avast Internet Security Review

avast Internet Security is an all-inclusive antivirus suite, which provides speedy real-time protection from malware and other threats. In addition to real-time protection against these threats, this tool also includes additional services like VPN connectivity, password manager protection and an anti-theft feature to locate stolen devices quickly. Furthermore, the software updates itself automatically saving time spent searching and updating it manually.

AVAST performs exceptionally well in independent lab tests and its anti-malware engine is among the best available. With an outstanding detection rate and ransomware protection features that include blocking changes or locking your files until payment has been received, as well as blocking attempts that typically bypass browser protections, AVAST stands out.

As for web protection, this app excelled, detecting several phishing sites that had passed unnoticed by our test browsers and protecting against cryptojacking and adware. If you own multiple devices, its central management console enables scanning and monitoring at once; in addition, rules can be created to block certain websites or apps, while customer support is available both via email and chat.

The Avast software features an intuitive user-interface that makes it simple for you to navigate and adjust its settings. Furthermore, its cleanup function can assist in clearing up your device by deleting junk files and freeing up space, while simultaneously improving performance by freezing unnecessary processes. As well as its malware protection feature, avast software also scans emails and social media accounts for suspicious posts as well as notifying you when hackers attempt to gain entry to personal information.

Avast’s new free option, avast One Essential, offers solid protection at an ideal price. It received top marks in our malware protection tests while having minimal impact on PC performance. Anti-tracking capabilities, firewall protection, and VPN access with 5GB per week data limits round out this offering – although some features such as password managers or parental controls might be missing from more expensive solutions.

Upgrade to any of the company’s paid plans to gain advanced features, such as a secure router and intelligent home network scanner, remote appliance control capabilities and even a Rescue Disk that helps reset computers when infected with malware.

Although Avast has made strides since being caught selling personal information in 2020, other top-rated products, like Norton and Bitdefender offer better alternatives. Both can monitor bank account activity for suspicious activity as well as offer more advanced tools such as password managers and parental controls – you should consider their full feature set prior to making a decision about which one you prefer.
