Avast antivirus protection is among the world’s most popular security programs because of its numerous security features and impressive malware detection. It scans, identifies and removes malicious files. It protects against hackers accessing your personal data, and blocks ransomware attempts to protect your data. It also scans your network to identify weaknesses and provides security tools that help prevent threats from causing damage.

The program is easy to use and doesn’t slow down your computer’s performance if it runs in the background. It also runs Boot-Time Scan in order to detect and block any malicious software that may be loaded when your system boots. It is available for desktops, smartphones, and tablets.

In independent lab tests, the program consistently receives high marks for its features such as malware protection and password management as well as a secure browser and privacy boosters. Its phishing defense uses next-generation AI and a network that consists of hundreds of thousands of sensors, to identify websites that try to obtain personal information from users or gain access to their devices.

In our tests, we discovered that the malware-engine of the program scored an outstanding score and its web protection blocked several phishing sites that had slipped past Chrome’s and Firefox’s default security. Other important features include a Rescue Disk, a secure browser, and advanced anti-tracking and anti-DNS hijacking protections. The program is compatible with multiple devices and frequently updates its features in order to stay ahead of emerging threats.
