The Avast VPN app is simple, easy to use and comes with a number of good security features. It isn’t equipped with essential features such as split tunneling and a kill button. Also, it’s not equipped with a built-in Ad-blocker. While it’s a good service in general but there are other options that offer better features for the price.
The Windows client offers a pleasant user interface that is a familiar experience for anyone who’s used Avast’s anti-virus program. Its interface is simple and the burger menu at the top right navigates to “Settings.” The Windows application can connect automatically, or you can start a connection manually clicking the Change Location button. Then, you’ll be able to view a list of connections that are of connections categorized by region and function (P2P streaming, P2P).
Avast VPN is a strong security option thanks to its 256-bit AES encryption, which prevents WebRTC leaks and DNS leaks. It also supports the extremely secure OpenVPN protocol, and offers beta support for WireGuard which allows you to connect to areas that might otherwise block VPNs. It’s an excellent choice for people with sporadic internet connections.
Avast’s privacy policies are more transparent than other privacy policies, and it doesn’t log your IP address of origin or the websites you visit. It does keep track of the amount of data that was downloaded and uploaded during your session.
Avast VPN provides a 7-day trial that is free and does not require a credit card. You can then pick between one, twoor three-year subscription for up to five devices. It accepts PayPal, Perfect Money and credit cards, but does not provide cash or cryptocurrencies.
