Original Review: How secure is secure enough? Avast seems khổng lồ be betting that you’ll want all the security bells và whistles that you can afford, but its paid tiers seem lớn be offering too little for the price. With that said, the không tính tiền tier of Avast offers a fantastic antivirut engine at its core (PLEASE NOTE THE ABOVE UPDATE). You’ll love the security of Avast, as well as the speed with which it reacts lớn detect với mitigate dangerous programs – just try not lớn get too frustrated by its incessant pleas for you khổng lồ tăng cấp.
Nội Dung1 Does the Antivi khuẩn Engine Make the Grade?3 Paid Features Don’t Add Enough Value
As mentioned, Avast went above sầu với beyond when it came time khổng lồ thiết kế the không lấy phí version of their antivirut hàng hóa. Even the basic virut scan offers more functionality than most. Instead of just searching for viruses và malware, it also detects out-of-date software, malicious browser add-ons, network issues, unprotected sensitive sầu documents, và weak passwords.
My first scan detected no malware, bad extensions, or network issues, but it did find vulnerable software, unprotected documents, cùng weak passwords. I’m not surprised that there’s vulnerable software on my computer – I have a lot of software và it’s a pain to update it all – but these last two items gave me a little bit of pause. What does Avast count as unprotected sensitive sầu documents và how vì chưng they find them? Furthermore, how vị they kiểm tra the strength of my passwords?
As it turns out, the sensitive documents scan is highly effective sầu. It found tax records, employment documents, financial statements, với more – stuff I’ve stored on my computer without even remembering that I’ve put it there. In all, it only detected two false positives. Avast sorted these documents inlớn categories such as taxes, payroll, employment, với travel (documents such as driver’s licenses cùng passports. It also gives you an easy button khổng lồ the right of each entry that instantly shows you the location of each document that it finds.
Reading between the lines of the sale copy, Avast seems to lớn be leveraging a công nghệ known as Data Loss Prevention (DLP). DLP is a tool that’s normally used in the context of large companies that store customer data such as credit thẻ và social security numbers. Using DLP, companies can scan word documents với conduct optical character recognition (OCR) on PDFs in order lớn detect strings of numbers that resemble these sensitive sầu bits of data. The company can then know exactly where its sensitive data is cùng take steps khổng lồ ensure that no one moves or deletes it.
Simply knowing the location of my sensitive sầu data is very useful cùng seeing DLP. công nghệ move sầu from a corporate to lớn a consumer context is interesting to lớn say the least. There’s unfortunately not a lot that you can bởi with this information without locking yourself inlớn a subscription, however. Once you vì subscribe, you get the option to lớn encrypt your information và store it in a secure digital locker. If any attacker attempts lớn move sầu or delete these files, the program blocks access và notifies the user.
Avast’s weak password scan is frankly a bit of a letdown. I was expecting the service to lớn tell me that I’d set one of my passwords khổng lồ “123cat” or something equally simple by using some sort of futuristic hash-scanning algorithm. Instead, it just told me that I’m storing passwords in my browser (everyone does), that this method is potentially insecure (jury’s out on that), và that I should upgrade in order to lớn use Avast Passwords, Avast’s password management service. This may certainly be useful, but it’s not worth committing to a yearly subscription when you could just use one of the best password managers that are already available elsewhere. (More on this later.)
Does the Antivirus Engine Make the Grade?
All of these extras are frankly a distraction from the core of the scan itself – the malware detector. Independent lab tests show that Avast has a highly-rated antivirut engine, demonstrating advanced features cùng flagging zero false positives. Few antivirus engines scored higher. In addition, testing-under real-world conditions shows that Avast is efficient at detecting với mitigating the vectors – such as drive-by-downloads và code injection attacks – by which malware propagates. To summarize, Avast will detect most forms of advanced malware, cùng prevent most of them from even installing on your computer. If any malware gets by, an automatic scan will usually detect với destroy the infection within a day.
When malware attempts to exexinh đẹp on a computer, Avast springs into lớn action. It will detect most known malware samples immediately, then quarantine và delete them. If Avast detects an unknown tệp tin that acts suspiciously, Avast kills the process với analyzes the malware sample at its corporate headquarters. If you suspect that Avast has missed a tệp tin, you can right-click on any tệp tin in your Windows Explorer panel và select the tệp tin or thỏng mục for individual scanning.
More importantly, Avast is very good at making sure that malware doesn’t get onlớn your computer in the first place. It detects most sites that attempt to distribute malware before they start downloading onkhổng lồ your computer. For the rest, Avast will interrupt the malware sites during the cài về stage – missing only a few files, which will usually be caught by Avast’s active protection once they attempt to lớn exedễ thương.
Phishing sites – sites that attempt to lớn duplicate banking login screens và social truyền thông media – are far more comtháng than malware sites, as well as being a bit simpler to lớn produce. It’s arguably more important khổng lồ protect users from these sites than it is khổng lồ protect them from sites dedicated to malware. Although this is a paid feature, Avast has the ability lớn protect users from phishing sites with surprising efficiency. Their software doesn’t just block sites that have sầu already been blacklisted – they also can identify phishing sites that are too new to have sầu been identified by security researchers.
To summarize, the không tính tiền version of Avast offers security that’s amuốn the best that I’ve ever seen. You’d almost expect that its designers would have sầu turned something off lớn make the paid upgrade more essential, but they haven’t. Its paid features, including a locker for your passwords cùng an encryption option for sensitive files, just don’t add more khổng lồ the table.
Outside of the core antivi khuẩn function, Avast offers a host of features in both its không lấy phí và paid versions that are designed to keep your data secure. These features range from the expected khổng lồ the exotic, with many of the paid features being perhaps more useful to power users. Here’s the rundown:
Free Features are Critical khổng lồ Online Security với Quality of Life
First of all, Avast offers a series of advanced security scans. This is distinct from the “Smart Scan” that you see on the program’s main thực đơn. When you cliông chồng on the “protection” tab, you’ll see a variety of options, including “Full Virus Scan” và “Boot-Time Scan.”
Full Virus Scan is both slower với more thorough than the primary smart scan. Although it takes quite a bit longer – up to lớn a couple of hours on a slower machine – it has a better chance of detecting và resolving threats. If you suspect that your computer was infected by malware prior khổng lồ installing Avast, you’ll likely want lớn vì chưng a Full Virus Scan in order to weed out any lingering threats.
You’ll also want to run a Boot Time Scan. Many advanced kinds of malware now have sầu the ability lớn persist even when their files are deleted from your computer’s operating system. That’s because these viruses exist outside the primary OS. When they’re deleted, they simply reinstall themselves from files that are outside the operating system. A Boot Time Scan restarts your computer cùng watches for suspicious programs that try to lớn exedễ thương while the computer is running, và then stops them in their tracks.
Lastly, Avast offers a full-featured WiFi scanner designed to protect you at your home page với on the go. When I ran it, it discovered every device connected to lớn my WiFi in under a minute – my desktop, máy tính xách tay, console, cellphone, với kitchen speaker. If my devices were unsecured, it would have pointed out vulnerabilities such as ports exposed to the mạng internet, default passwords, và other weaknesses.
Paid Features Don’t Add Enough Value
Outside of these advanced virut scanning features, Avast doesn’t offer much – but it’s not clear that you’d need much more anyway. For example, there’s a utility that’s supposed lớn clean your computer’s hard drive sầu, for example, but it’s paid for. Meanwhile, CCleaner is free. Want to get rid of particularly sensitive sầu materials? Avast offers a secure erase function that can delete a tệp tin by writing over it many times, removing all trace of it from your computer. The system works as advertised, but it’s hard to lớn see who needs it other than security researchers. There’s a VPN add-on that you can pay for, but other standalone VPNs offer similar features for less.
To summarize, Avast has won me over with its không tính tiền version, but it has lost its balance when it comes lớn paid và premium pricing. The features here won’t make you much more secure than the miễn phí software, và you can replicate most of their functionality with miễn phí or lower-cost third tiệc ngọt software.
Ease of use
This is an area where Avast frustrated me. I realize that if you’re an antivi khuẩn company, you need to lớn make money by converting your không lấy phí users to paid subscribers. I really shouldn’t mind that Avast takes every opportunity to lớn get me lớn upsell – cùng for the most part, I don’t. What irks me, however, is the liberal use of dark-pattern UI in order lớn get me khổng lồ pay up.
If you’re unfamiliar with dark-pattern UI, here’s a quick example.
When you boot up Avast, you get a splash screen a big “scan now” button in the middle và a Trắng box offering you a welcome gift.
The “gift” turns out to be a steep discount on a subscription. What if you don’t want a subscription? As you can see from the screenshot below, there’s no “back” button, only a “buy now” option. In order to baông xã out of the upsell screen you actually have to clichồng the red X in the top right corner, something that’s counter-intuitive khổng lồ most users who think that button just closes the program.
When you hit that X, by the way, another pop up comes after it, offering you a không lấy phí trial.
Again, this is not a huge disappointment – because again, the service needs khổng lồ make money – và if that were the only example of that in the program, I probably wouldn’t mind. With that said, Avast goes a long way towards burying its goodwill by offering other confusing và intrusive upsells buried in its software.
Here’s another example. In Avast’s “privacy” menu, you can see some options that are closed off with a big orange loông chồng, và some that aren’t. You’d expect that you’d have to lớn pay lớn unlochồng features that are locked, cùng that the features that are unlocked would be không tính phí. That’s unfortunately not the case. When you clichồng on SecureLine VPN, for example, a separate program installs itself on your computer, với then asks you for money. If you cliông xã on “Performance” và choose “Driver Updater,” the same thing happens. Avast takes you all the way into installing a new program on your computer, và then asks you for money.
The most egregious example happened with the password manager, which is miễn phí but not great. The password manager operates as a Chrome or Firefox extension that stores your password cùng is secured with a master password, but it neither suggests svào passwords nor warns you about weak or duplicate passwords – something that’s a must in other products. You can’t even implement two-factor authentication.
Anyway, when I clicked through the menus that led inlớn the password management function, I decided lớn decline khổng lồ import my passwords into lớn Avast’s password manager. Imagine my surprise when Avast started lớn import my passwords anyway! Although I was able khổng lồ cancel the transfer, Avast also installed their proprietary secure browser on my machine – again without my permission.
This is a bit worrying. It doesn’t speak ill when it comes khổng lồ the functionality of the antivirus engine itself, but for long-term users, the constant reminders to upsell – plus the misleading menu options – may eventually become frustrating
Avast offers premium hỗ trợ tư vấn services for its antivi khuẩn sản phẩm at every pricing tier. There’s an extensive knowledgebase that explains how its features work và what they’re supposed lớn vị. These walk inexperienced users through the operation of the product với allow them to lớn vì chưng some basic troubleshooting on their own.
The organization also boasts a 24/7 Gọi center for more serious problems. The tech support specialists are able lớn provide detailed cùng helpful information within a short amount of time. This information should be helpful for both inexperienced users và power users alike.
When compared to other antivirus programs, Avast is roughly average in terms of expense. There are four main pricing tiers – Free, Internet Security, Premier, và Ultimate. If you’re determined to pay for Avast, Internet Security is probably the best option for you. It includes several useful chất lượng of life features that the không tính tiền tier lacks – a Real Site option that protects against phishing sites, a Ransomware Shield lớn protect your files from encryption, a firewall that stops intrusion attempts, cùng an anti-spam feature.
Internet Security also includes one of the coolest features that isn’t included in the free version – the Sandbox mode. This lets you open files và programs in a virtual machine that doesn’t have sầu access permissions to lớn your desktop. If the tệp tin contains malware, then the malicious program will exedễ thương in an area where it can’t vì chưng your computer any harm. This is a really neat little bonus, cùng it’s great for anyone who’s constantly receiving phishing attempts.
Meanwhile, the more expensive sầu pricing tiers contain more of the software that’s nice to lớn have, but not vital. Upgrading khổng lồ Premier gets you the superfluous data shredder và disk cleanup features, while upgrading lớn Ultimate gets you the VPN cùng the password manager. None of these are necessarily essential to lớn your data security, với if you must have sầu them, they’re available from third parties at a lower price for the same effectiveness.
Once again: the không lấy phí tier of Avast gives you all the information security you’re likely lớn need, but if you must nâng cấp, the Internet Security tier gives you most of everything else.
