The Avast VPN app is simple user-friendly and offers some good security features. However, it is missing some important features, like a kill switch as well as split tunneling. Also, it doesn’t have an Ad-blocker built-in. It’s a great service overall however, there are other alternatives that offer better features at less cost.

The Windows client has a pleasant user interface that is familiar to anyone who’s used Avast’s anti-virus software. It’s easy to use and intuitive. The hamburger menu at the top right will lead you to “Settings.” You can connect automatically or manually by clicking on the Change Location button. You’ll then see a list of servers categorized by region and function (P2P or streaming).

Avast VPN provides strong security thanks to its 256-bit AES encryption, which blocks WebRTC leaks as well as DNS leaks. It also supports the highly secured OpenVPN protocol, and comes with beta support for WireGuard. This allows you to connect to places where VPNs aren’t allowed. It’s a great option for those with intermittent internet connections.

Avast’s policies on privacy are more transparent than other policies and it doesn’t record your IP address or websites you visit. It does, however, keep track of the amount of information that was uploaded and downloaded during your session.

Avast VPN provides a 7-day free trial that does not require credit card. You can then select one three-year, two or three-year contracts for up to five devices at the same time. It accepts PayPal, Perfect Money and credit cards but doesn’t offer cryptocurrencies or cash payment.
