The Avast VPN application is easy to use, simple to use and comes with some excellent security features. However, it’s missing some essential features, including a kill switch or split tunneling. It also doesn’t have an Ad-blocker integrated. While it’s an excellent service in general but there are other options that have better features for the price.
The Windows client has a pleasing, easy-to-use interface and is familiar to anyone who’s used Avast’s anti-virus program. Its interface is simple and its hamburger menu at the top right leads to “Settings.” The Windows application is able to connect automatically, or you can begin a connection manually by clicking the Change Location button. Then, you’ll be presented with a list of connections that is categorized according to region, and function (P2P, streaming).
Security is robust with Avast VPN due to its 256-bit AES encryption and the fact that it wards off WebRTC leaks and DNS leaks. It also supports the highly secure OpenVPN protocol, and also has beta support WireGuard. This allows you to connect in locations where VPNs are blocked. It’s an excellent choice for those with intermittent internet connections.
Avast VPN provides a 7-day trial for free that does not require a credit card. You can then select one three or two-year plans for up to five devices at the same time. It accepts credit cards, PayPal and Perfect Money but does not offer cryptocurrencies or cash payments.
