Avast Premier is a premium security program that provides an amazing array of features for users looking to protect their devices. In my tests, its malware detection rates were very high and its web protection caught some phishing websites that were able to pass through Chrome and Firefox’s default setting. It also comes with a firewall that blocks unwanted connections between your device and external networks.
The user interfaces at Avast are intuitive modern, contemporary and easy to use. They focus on accessibility and navigation, and have simple and clean designs. The software’s features and tools are categorised and presented logically and users are able to customize the software according to their preferences. Its installation processes are straightforward and well-guided and it has minimal impact on the system resources. However, resource use may increase during software updates and primary scans.
Both Premier and Internet Security are available in different subscription levels, and the pricing and duration options differ according to the tier chosen and number of devices covered by the service. Both have the same functionality however Premier has a wider range of security features and functions than Internet Security, with some minor differences in performance and the impact of programs.
Its software is available through trial at no cost and it’s easy to purchase directly from the Avast website. After you select a product, the payment screen will appear and you will be given a link to install it right away. You can pay through credit card or PayPal. If you need help Avast’s support center has an extensive knowledge base and questions and answers, and it also provides live chat and phone assistance if you have more complex problems.
