The avast Ultimate is an antivirus software program that provides the complete protection for smartphones, computers tablets from malware including ransomware, spyware viruses, and much more. The program comes with a number of powerful security features such as advanced anti-tracking and a VPN to ensure privacy online, as well as top tuneup and cleaning tools. Its advanced malware engine earned the highest detection rate during my tests and even caught some phishing attacks that could get over the default security features.

This is Avast’s most comprehensive package that combines all of their top performance and security capabilities into one comprehensive suite. Its sophisticated antivirus cybersecurity defends against all kinds of malware, including ransomware. It also comes with a VPN to guarantee maximum privacy online, as well as top tuneup and cleaning tools and a tool for managing passwords. The Wi-Fi Inspector tool can look over your office or home network for weaknesses. The AntiTrack feature blocks online trackers from accessing and sharing your personal information.

All of these features are available through both Windows and Android devices. The program’s multi-device license allows you to activate it on up to ten different platforms simultaneously. Avast also offers a single device plan as well as the more specific Avast Cleanup Premium feature.

Avast’s security suite is simple to use and its interface is largely intuitive. Multi-device licensing makes it a good choice for families. Its free version is more than sufficient to protect against malware. The customer support is good, but it takes a few steps to get assistance from a human.
