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.

Internet problems after app

so I love this app it really helped my phone because I clicked on a wrong link and it said I had multiple viruses in my phone so my mom told me to get this app on my phone because I used to have it in and it confirmed that I have no viruses and it helped me secure my phone but now I have the Internet VPN on my phone and it makes my Internet so much slower and it is not good because I also have avast on my laptop, which I do my school on because I am homeschooled and it makes it both of my devices internets very slow, which won’t work. my mom also has avast on all her devices and she works from home so avast if you can, please fix this Internet problem, me and my family will be able to continue using your app to secure our devices but if we don’t start seeing change we will have to find a different app as our Internet is not working any more.

Hello, this sounds very unusual issue. Our app normally does not slow down anything. Could you please contact us by form:

Just describe your problem again and specify what device you have (or add any useful information).

Thanks, Avast

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
