Avast implements intelligent antivirus for detecting threats, viruses, malware, spyware, ransomware, and phishing attacks. A cool feature of Avast is the Wi-Fi Inspector. Wi-Fi inspector checks your router configuration to prevent threats on that front. Avast leverages the CyberCapture feature. Cyber Capture provides real-time threat detection.

The Avast Passwords feature allows you to remember just one Master Password. Avast Passwords will remember all the other passwords across all devices! Avast has its own browser if you want it.
