Avast’s interface is easy to use, and has distinct distinctions between its various elements. The blue icons are easy to use and have orange accents that are in line with the logo of the company. The homepage lets you run a scan, and then turn on the VPN and shortcuts to some useful tools for optimizing your system are also available. However the fact that a lot of Avast’s other features are hidden under the “Explore” tab can be a bit frustrating.
Installation is easy, and you are not forced to use the free version. However, a thorough scan will find “advanced problems” that require premium security to address. It’s a little shady and especially when the Resolve button takes you to a web page asking you to sign for Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast sells user data as well, according to a Which? article published in 2020. magazine.
