Avast One

Avast has announced updates to its Avast One “personal online guardian” product that includes adding its Online Safety Score feature to both the Mac and iOS platforms as well as adding Network Inspector to Mac platforms.

 The Online Safety Score (OSS) gives you regular feedback on your digital habits and personalized tips to help you  take charge of your online and device safety. Other features include:     

° Network Inspector: automatically scans networks and connected devices for vulnerabilities, and offers recommendations to improve device security when connected to public networks, as well as

 tips to strengthen the protection of home networks so that intruders are unable to access them and obtain personal data.

∞† App Lock: locks sensitive apps and photos with a PIN, pattern, or fingerprint that’s different to the authentication used to unlock a phone, providing the user with an additional layer of protection.

° For individuals or families with iOS devices, the Photo Vault feature secures photos in an encrypted folder inside the Avast One app, protected by a PIN, Touch ID or Face ID to improve privacy

 on shared mobile devices 

Additionally, Avast One’s Back to School 50% off deal runs through September 14 and includes their family plan, discounted to about $5/month for up to 30 devices with 24/7 support and a 30-day money back guarantee.  

Avast One is available in the U.S., Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. It’s compatible with macOS, iOS Android, and Windows.
