Fantastic Customer Service!

I was traumatized from System Mechanic/iolo customer service and thankfully they gave me a refund for my entire account so I can switch. They tried to take control of my computer through remote session, would not let me move my mouse to cancel the session and tried to sell me $240 for several years of live tech. Would not listen to me when I said no several times. I was done. Found out avast had everything an antivirus software needs and decided to buy it. I had some trouble setting up a feature so I called customer service. They are fantastic. They didn’t even try to sell me another product and helped me fix my issue. I am buying everything they have on all my devices.

Great app.

I think it is this is a great app, especially because of the fact that it is very accessible. I am someone who uses voiceover, which is a screen reader that Apple has built into all of their products, and this app is very accessible with this program. however, there is one thing that I think should be changed. I know that the developers make their money by developing these apps, but I think that there should be a free version of the app, where all of the features are accessible because of the fact that some people may not be able to afford the premium, but should still get all the features. otherwise, great app, and thank you to the developers for developing this app.

Hi, we find it fair to offer top quality protection for free and more advanced features for a little fee. Thanks for understanding. David*Avast

Worthwhile and Also Important

I jumped on the offer last holiday season for the Avast One annual plan. My laptop was so vulnerable before this, for the 8 months of using it compared to after having this security. I love how user friendly they made the smart scans and all the categories they put in laymen’s terms. I would not only recommend this for anyone with a computer, but I will 100% maintain my subscription to Avast for any of my computers. Will probably also upgrade to family plan so friends and/or immediate family can stay protected and secure. It’s a jungle out there, and it’s important to have protection from the unlimited threats to our precious computer systems and our privacy.
