Avast’s free review windows
The interface for Avast is simple to use, and has an obvious separation between its different elements. The blue icons are simple to use and come with orange accents that are in line with the logo of the company. On the homepage, you can perform scans, switch on the VPN and access shortcuts to a variety of less-than-useful tools for optimizing your system. However the fact that a lot of the other features offered by Avast are hidden away within the “Explore” tab can be somewhat frustrating.
Installation is simple and you’re not required to select the free version. However, a full scan will identify “advanced problems” that require premium security in order to address. It’s a little shady, especially when the Resolve button takes you to a page that asks you to sign to Avast’s Premium Security plan. Avast also sells user information which was revealed in a report from 2020 by Which? magazine.
