Avast free review windows
The interface of Avast is easy to use, with an obvious separation between its different elements. The blue icons are simple to use and feature orange accents that match the logo of the company. On the homepage, you can run scans, turn on the VPN and gain access to shortcuts to some not-so-useful tools for optimizing your system. However, the fact that most of the other features offered by Avast are buried away in the “Explore” tab can be somewhat disconcerting.
Installation is simple and you are not forced to use the free version. However, a thorough scan will reveal “advanced problems” that require premium security to resolve. It’s a little shady particularly when the Resolve button redirects you to a web page asking you to sign to Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast also sells user information, which was uncovered in a 2020 article from Which? magazine.
