How to Configure the Best Avast Settings for Performance

Avast is among the more intuitive antiviruses that are available and its user-friendly interface makes the majority of features available through one menu. This is a big help for anyone with limited time or resources for software learning, and the short explanations of each feature will ensure that you don’t ever need to guess what it is that something does. The search function also allows you to locate settings you’re looking for.

Aside from the basic security features of antivirus, you can configure other settings that influence your security and performance. You can disable webcam scanning and ad blocking. You can also check for bloatware which is slowing down your device and also block Avast running background updates. You can also use Avast Clean-up to get rid of unnecessary applications and optimize your computer to improve speed and stability.

The Avast ransomware protection comes with two modes namely smart and strict. The former checks a list of trustworthy apps to determine which may affect your files, and then lets you decide whether or not to allow these changes. The latter works much like a firewall and only allows approved changes. In both cases you’ll be informed and asked for permission before any modifications are made to your secure files.

Upgrading to an Avast premium plan will unlock a host of additional security and performance-enhancing tools, including anti-phishing protections, an advanced firewall, webcam protection, and a VPN. However, a few of these extras compare unfavorably with other security products with similar prices.
