Avast Service Review


Avast is a huge staple of the antivirus industry with a robust malware detection engine as well as lots of additional features such as ransomware protection as well as a firewall for websites and VPN assistance. Its malware detection score of 6 out of 6 in our tests was outstanding and it did a great job of preventing access to phishing sites which did not pass through Chrome’s and Firefox default security.

Avast’s tests in real-world conditions showed that it could scan almost two million files in one full scan. This is a feat, considering how lightweight and efficient the software is. In our tests of speed, Avast didn’t impact system performance in any noticeable way and it performed better than most competitors which can take an hour or more to trawl through the exact number of files.

The interface of Avast is clean simple and easy to navigate. The Avast interface is clean, simple and easy to navigate. The majority of tools are located on one page, with clear tiles that represent each feature. This makes it easy to locate the features you need without having search through a lengthy menu or a multitude of applications. This is a huge improvement over McAfee suite that has all its features spread across multiple applications.

Avast offers a high degree of customer service, including 24/7 support via email or by phone. The company also offers forums and a knowledge base to help you with basic issues. For more complicated issues, it is possible to use a ticketing system to ask for assistance. However, its practices for sharing data are a source of concern, and it doesn’t include a password manager or parental controls to match rivals like Bitdefender’s Total Security.
