The interface of Avast is simple to navigate, with an easy separation of 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 allows you to run a scan and switch on the VPN and also shortcuts to some useful tools for optimisation of your system are also available. The fact that the most important features are hidden away in the “Explore tab” is frustrating.
Installation is simple, and you’re never tempted into a free version, but the full scan may reveal “advanced issues” that require paying for premium security. It’s a little shady and especially when the Resolve option takes you to a webpage that asks you to sign up for Avast’s Premium security plan. Avast also sells user data as revealed in a story published in 2020 by Which? magazine.
