The Avast VPN app is simple user-friendly and offers a range of excellent security features. It lacks important features like split tunneling and a kill button. It also doesn’t have an Ad-blocker integrated. While it’s a great service in general, there are other services that have better features for the price.
Anyone who has used Avast anti-virus software will be familiar with the Windows client’s pleasant, easy-to use interface. Its design is intuitive and its hamburger menu at the top of the right-hand side leads you to “Settings.” The Windows application will connect automatically, or initiate a connection manually by clicking the Change Location button. Then, you’ll see the list of servers that are categorized by region and function (P2P or streaming).
Avast VPN is a strong security option due to its 256-bit AES encryption, which stops WebRTC leaks and DNS leaks. It also supports the highly secure OpenVPN protocol, and has beta support for WireGuard. This allows you to connect in places where VPNs aren’t allowed. It’s an excellent choice for people who have intermittent internet connections.
Avast’s policies on privacy are more transparent than the other ones and it doesn’t record your IP address, or the websites you visit. However, it does track the amount of data you upload and downloaded over your session.
Avast VPN provides a 7-day free trial that does not require credit card. You can then select one three or two-year plans for up to five devices at a time. It accepts credit cards, PayPal and Perfect Money however it doesn’t accept cryptocurrencies or cash payments.
