High-grade protection

Malware and other data threats are nothing new nowadays, but as time passes, they continue to evolve and find new ways to invade and infect your computer. Avast Premium Security is an antivirus that gives its users full security coverage. It is equipped with features that could not only detect threats but as well as prevent them before they could even do any damage. 

Anti-phishing feature  

One of Avast Premium Security’s important features is its anti-phishing technology. As mentioned above, there are now more ways to invade user privacy and steal information besides infiltrating computers through infected hard drives and files. Phishing is a way to bait users to give enough relevant information that can be used to hack into their accounts. It is obviously less complicated compared to other hacking methods, and people are most likely to fall for it. Avast’s anti-phishing feature is here to prevent that from happening. Unlike other antivirus software, Avast is able to detect and pinpoint suspicious websites even without having to install a web extension for it. As soon as the software detects potential threats, it will alert its users through a pop-up message that will appear in the middle of their screen. Avast will have the website temporarily blocked until a scan is conducted to prove that the website is safe. 

Peaceful sessions

Reminders and alerts are appreciated, but you have to admit that they can also be annoying. Avast is considerate enough to include a Do Not Disturb feature, preventing any pop-up windows from interrupting whatever activity you are currently doing. It includes alerts not only from Avast itself but from other websites and programs as well. There is an option, however, to select which specific programs you still would like to receive notifications from. Of course, if you want to silence just Avast, that can be done as well. Despite having Avast’s notifications and alerts turned off, you can still rest assured that the software will continue operating in the background, ensuring you are protected all over.

A friendly antivirus software

Even with its many available features, using Avast is very easy to use. It comes with an organized interface with all its four main functions arranged at the side of the window. Even the process of running scans and configuring security options can be done in just a few clicks. For an antivirus that provides advanced security and protection, it is very user-friendly
