Avast VPN Review
The Avast VPN app is simple user-friendly and comes with a number of good security features. It doesn’t have essential features like split tunneling and the kill button. Also, it doesn’t have an Ad-blocker that is built-in. While it’s a good service overall but there are other options that have better features for the cost.
Anyone who has used Avast anti-virus software will be familiar with the Windows client’s friendly, easy to navigate interface. It’s user-friendly and understand. The burger menu on the top right leads you to “Settings.” You can connect to the server automatically or manually by clicking on the Change Location button. You’ll then be presented with a list of connections separated by region and function (P2P streaming, P2P).
Avast VPN is a strong security option thanks to its 256-bit AES encryption, which blocks WebRTC leaks and DNS leaks. It also supports the extremely secure OpenVPN protocol and has beta support for WireGuard which allows you to connect to areas that might otherwise block VPNs. It’s an excellent option for those who experience intermittent internet connectivity.
Avast’s policies on privacy are more transparent than other policies and it doesn’t record your IP address or websites you visit. But it does record the amount of data you upload and downloaded during your session.
Avast VPN offers a free 7-day trial. It doesn’t require an account with a credit card. You can then choose one three-year, two or three-year contracts for up to five devices at the same time. It accepts credit cards, PayPal and Perfect Money however it doesn’t accept cash or cryptocurrencies.
