Avast Service Review

Avast is among the most well-known brands of antivirus software and its free version providing a solid foundation of protection against malware. The paid versions, especially Avast Premium Security, provide numerous additional features to keep your device secure. This includes a VPN service, Wi-Fi inspector and more. Avast is rated as one of the top choices in this category by the AV-Comparatives RealWorld Test of Protection.

Avast identified a variety of threats quickly and efficiently during our tests. The scan was completed in 6 minutes 50 seconds, which is impressive considering that it was able to scan more than 2 million files.

In terms of false positives, we were slightly shocked to learn that Avast was prone to flagging certain programs as malicious. During our testing Avast identified legitimate applications five times when it detected malicious programs during system scans on Windows this figure is two higher than the industry standard. This only happens in rare instances and you can send the file to be reviewed for a correction should Avast flags it as a mistake.

Avast offers a solid knowledge base that provides assistance with common issues There are direct phone and email support options available. For those who want to add an extra level of security may choose an annual subscription that adds password management and parental controls to the program. Avast provides a 30-day return guarantee on its paid services.
