Avast Ultimate Antivirus Review


Avast claims to be protecting 435 million devices through its award-winning software for more than 30 years. Avast’s free software offers limited capabilities. However its premium offerings, like Avast Ultimate are quite comprehensive. The suite includes antivirus software, VPN services, password managers, and Cleanup utilities to assist users in managing their passwords, keep their identity private online, and enhance their devices.

Avast Ultimate is simple to use, with an easy-to-read layout that clearly demarcates the different tools it provides. The malware engine scored well in lab tests conducted by independent labs that identified a variety of threats that often bypass other security tools. Its web security is effective, catching a lot of websites that are phishing and slip through Chrome and Firefox’s default protections.

Other tools include an app lock, RAM boost, and a network scanner that looks for weaknesses. Its ransomware protection shield blocks third-party software from altering the contents of your files until you pay a fee. The program also comes with mobile applications for Android and iOS. Apple’s restrictions have led to the Android version more feature-rich, but both versions include essential security features such as malware scanning and web coverage.

The main issue with Avast is that it stores and sends your personal information to its analytics business, Jumpshot. In 2020, this was exposed by a PCMag and Motherboard investigative report. However, it is possible to turn off this feature through the settings menu. If you are still concerned, Avast lets you set a password you must enter to prevent the software from sharing your IP address or other information with third-party organizations.
