From the whole variety of Avast’s products, this (Avast Internet Security 2018) one focuses on secure Internet browsing. It’s monitoring all the actions the user takes online, analyzes all the pages visited and indicates if there’s any threat there.
This specific product can keep you safe from phishing sites by checking every hyperlink you visit with its cloud base. If the page looks (or has been proved) dangerous, you see a warning.
To avoid ransomware implementation, AIS keeps your most important files secure from attempts to encrypt them. As well encrypted is your data you send out to sites that can be fake replicas. So the real banks or payment systems can decrypt it, and fraud ones can’t get your credentials.
The suite also offers an advanced firewall that blocks your computer from outer invaders. Though today’s mail services have learned to detect spam or scam, Avast offers its own extra spam filter. Another extra feature is analyzing all the software you have installer. Not only Avast detects whether it’s secure, but also suggests what programs to remove if you haven’t used them for long.
Though the real-time monitor requires a serious share of system resources, your security may be worth this.
