The avast Ultimate is an antivirus program that provides a complete protection suite for tablets, smartphones, and desktops against spyware and malware. It also shields users from ransomware, viruses and other malicious software. The program comes with a number of powerful security features such as advanced anti-tracking as well as a VPN for online privacy, as well as top-quality cleaning and tuneup tools. In my tests the advanced malware engine had 100% detection. It even caught some fraudulent attempts to phish that went through Chrome and Firefox’s default security.
This is the most comprehensive package that Avast provides that combines their top security and performance features into a comprehensive suite. Its advanced antivirus cybersecurity protects against all kinds of malware including ransomware. It also comes with an VPN for optimum online privacy, top tuneup and cleanup tools, as well as a password manager. The Wi-Fi Inspector tool can look over your office or home network for weaknesses. The AntiTrack feature will block online trackers from collecting and sharing personal information.
All of these features can be accessed through both Windows and Android devices. The multi-device license lets you activate the program on up to 10 different platforms at once. Avast offers a single device plan as well as the more advanced Avast Cleaning Premium feature.
The security suite from Avast is easy to use and its interface is largely intuitive. Multi-device licensing makes it a great option for families. The free version is also adequate to guard against malware. Its customer service is good, although it takes just a few steps to reach human help.
