The Avast One internet security suite recently earned perfect scores for malware protection from the two biggest independent security software labs, AV-Comparatives, and AV-Test. But it also has several advanced security tools, like a system cleaner, network protections, and unlimited VPN access.
For our UK Tom's Guide readers only, Avast has a special introductory offer. For only £23.99 (that's a 70% savings) you can protect up to 5 devices for a whole year!
Here's a quick look at some of the cool features of Avast One:
Firewall: Especially important when connected to public Wi-Fi, the Avast firewall keeps tab on your connection to make sure snoops and hackers can't sneak in this way. The firewall also works alongside Avast's network security so your system is clear of threats that don't originate from the web.
System cleaner: As you download apps and save files, your devices tend to run slower. Even after files have been deleted small remnants are left behind. Avast's system cleaner looks for these small bits, and anything else causing system slowdown and removes them.
VPN: A virtual private network hides your online activity by using encryption, so your activity can't be intercepted. There's also no proof linking your online movements to you. Even your IP address is hidden. Avast's VPN will kill your internet access automatically if your connection is ever compromised while using it.
ID monitoring: Because of how easy it is to lose personal information due to data breaches, using the ID monitoring that comes with Avast One is very helpful. It will keep watch for your passwords, email addresses, and other login credentials being used on the dark web.
