World-class virus protection for any device
- 30+ years of experience helped us create an easy-to-use antivirus that features the industry’s largest threat-detection network, machine-learning virus protection, and home network security that won’t slow down your PC, Mac, Android, or iPhone.
- 6 layers of antivirus security
- Sometimes your operating system’s built-in protection isn’t enough. Adding Avast Free Antivirus lets you run automatic smart scans on software, files, and apps to find cracks where malware can slip in, plus send suspicious files for analysis in the cloud, get threat alerts, and more.
1. Smart Scan
Scans your device for hard-to-find vulnerabilities in hidden places.
Automatically sends suspicious files for analysis in the Cloud, then pushes a cure to Avast users if needed.
3. Behavior Shield
Alerts you immediately if any of your apps start behaving suspiciously.
4. File Shield
Alerts you to any suspicious files — before you open them.
5. Rescue Disk
Scans your device while your system’s switched off, so you can safely remove malware.
Stores potentially harmful files and completely isolates them from the rest of your operating system.
Avast Antivirus is more than just an antivirus. It also includes these privacy and security features:
Wi-Fi network security:
Connect safely and with confidence, even on unsecured or public Wi-Fi networks. Block hackers and intruders from piggybacking on your network and stop them from accessing your sensitive, personal files.
Safe browsing and emailing:
Stay safe when browsing, emailing, or working online. Block malicious websites & unsafe downloads, and stop your device from being hijacked and made part of a botnet.
Stop hackers from accessing, changing, or locking your personal files then holding you to ransom.
Data leak alerts:
Get an alert if any passwords linked to your email account have been compromised
