No one can argue against the fact that we live in a digital world nowadays. All of the most important transactions in our lives are made through computers. We communicate with people, book flights and accomodations, and even order food through computers. That’s not even the full extent of our reliance on computers. With all that said, it’s just common sense to protect your digital life. There are dozens of antivirus software out there, but Avast is one of the best developers in the industry. It’s no surprise that when it comes to antivirus software, the Avast Pro Antivirus is the first choice of a lot of users.

Uncomplicated Interface

Not everybody’s tech-savvy so it’s a good thing that the Avast Pro Antivirus has a very simple and uncomplicated interface. The interface just involves a sidebar at the left side of the window. That tab is divided into four sections: Status, Protection, Privacy, and Performance.

The Status tab does exactly what its name suggests: it shows the status of your computers. Typically, if your computer doesn’t have any issues, all you’ll see is “You’re protected” above a button where you can see the result of a scan. 

The Protection tab is where you can take actions to secure your computer. This tab is further divided into nine options: Scans, Core Shields, Virus Chest, Wi-Fi Inspector, Software Updater, Ransomware Shield, Firewall, Real Site, and Sandbox. The Scans option is probably what users will need most as this is where you can scan your computer for threats. The Virus Chest allows you to view the threats you’ve quarantined. Core Shields is where you go to choose how you want to protect your files. The Wi-Fi Inspector, Real Site, and Firewall are important for protecting you from Internet-based threats such as phishing sites. On the other hand, the Software Updater, Sandbox, and Ransomware Shield are interesting features that will most likely not be used as often as the others.

The Privacy Tab provides users with additional security by protecting their data. Users will not only be able to protect sensitive data and passwords, they’ll also be able to browse in safety and block any spying attempts.

Finally, the performance tab helps clean up your PC to optimize its performance.

Worth the Upgrade?

Most of the essential functions are actually available in the free version, so if you’re only thinking of protecting your PC from viruses then don’t bother. That said, there are some nice features only available when you upgrade. Probably the most important is the Firewall which allows you to establish a firewall. Most PC’s come with a built-in firewall, but it would have still been useful. Other than that, the Webcam Shield, Sensitive Data Shield, Ransomware Shield, and Data Shredder are all great, but not necessary.


An Amazing Antivirus Software

It’s no surprise that the Avast Pro Antivirus continues to be one of the most popular antivirus software out there. Not only is it efficient and extremely powerful, it’s also easy to use and not complicated. Whether you’re a tech-genius or a tech-novice, you’ll be able to use this program.
