Avast Internet Security is one of the most powerful antivirus applications on the market. It provides real-time protection from a variety of threats, such as viruses, spyware and ransomware. It includes other features like a firewall, spam filtering and a secure browser.

The program’s malware engine earned an excellent score in my tests and was efficient in identifying a range of threats, including ransomware, cryptojackers, rootkits, and websites that offer phishing. Its web protection is top-notch and also detects a variety of phishing websites which are able to get past Chrome and Firefox’s default protections. The firewall is an additional layer of protection that blocks hackers from accessing your devices regardless of whether they’re connected on your home network or not.

Avast’s privacy tools include the free Avast SecureLine VPN, which encrypts your connection and shields your connection when you connect to Wi-Fi in public areas. It also blocks invasive trackers and provides additional protection against spyware. The Password Manager lets you safely keep track of all your passwords. This can be a major hassle for cybercriminals seeking to steal them.

Avast’s customer base is loyal, which means that it is able to charge a small amount more for its software than its competitors. However, it’s important to inquire with any company that has access to your personal information how they plan to use it prior sign up. In 2020 Which? magazine found out that Avast was selling user data on the websites that its users visited and later apologized for this lapse in privacy.
