Avast antivirus protection
Avast is among the most prominent names in the cybersecurity industry. It is well-known for its excellent malware detection, web security and other security features, such as a boot-time scanner and virtual desktop. It can also be used with multiple devices, and includes an absolutely free VPN.
There are three plans available depending on how many devices you would like to cover. In addition to PCs, it can be installed on Mac and Android devices.
During our tests, Avast detected every single piece of malware on all the systems we tested it on. This is a remarkable feat given that the software detects over 1.5 billion threats each month.
The software’s speedy boot-time scanning is another feature worth mentioning. It examines your system for potentially hazardous files prior to Windows starts. It took less than an hour during my tests to run the entire scan on a computer running Windows 10.
The Avast product also has numerous other security www.binghamtoninternationalblog.com/how-to-watch-hbo-max-outside-the-us tools designed to protect your data. Its Sensitive Document Shield can be used to identify sensitive documents, such as invoices, tickets, and resumes. It didn’t detect any sensitive documents however, on the PC that I tested it on.
Avast also comes with an email Guardian, which can scan your email account for suspicious attachments as well as phishing links. It also has a feature called Bank Mode, which provides the user with a virtual desktop protected against keystroke loggers and screenshot attempts by third-party software. Avast’s privacy policies are also good. The company claims that it only collects data that is needed to protect and its analytics business Jumpshot only sells the information to large corporations once it has been “de-identified.”
