avast antivirus protect
Avast is one of the most prominent names in the security industry. It is well-known for its superb malware detection, web protection and other security features like the boot-time scanner and a virtual desktop. The software is also compatible with a variety of devices and comes with a free VPN.
There are three plans available depending on how many devices you want to cover. It is also installed on Macs and Android devices.
Avast detected every malware that was found on the systems we test. This is a feat of excellence considering that the program is able to detect more than 1.5 billion threats every month.
The software’s fast boot-time scanning is a different feature. It checks your system for potentially risky files before Windows loads. As I tested it I was able to take less than an hour to run the full scan on a regular PC running Windows 10.
The Avast product also includes a host of other security tools that are designed to safeguard your data. Its Sensitive Document Shield can detect sensitive documents such as tickets resumes, and invoices. It did not find any sensitive files on the computer I tried it on, however.
Avast’s email guardian can also scan your account for suspicious attachments or phishing sites. It also comes with a feature dubbed Bank Mode, which provides a virtual desktop that is protected from keystroke loggers and screenshot attempts made by third-party apps. Avast’s privacy policies are also excellent. The company claims to only collect information that is needed for protection. The company’s analytics business Jumpshot sells information only after it’s been de-identified.
