Versions of Avast Premium Security are available for Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets. The APS protection software has custom features that help manage device-specific threats.
One of the key features of Avast Premium Security is website scanning. This software will let you avoid web spoofing – when fake or duplicate websites steal your information. The program will give live security reports and notifications based on your settings, letting you know that the website you are on is fake and that the site will steal your information. A notification will also pop up and let you choose to block that website.
Working in conjunction with the website scanning feature, VPN protection will stop harmful websites from spying on you by encrypting your web traffic. Furthermore, VPN protection will allow you to access public WIFI with no risk of having your information stolen or tracked. This means that bots on public servers cannot harvest your search history and view your current activity.
The last Avast Premium Security feature is identity protection. Avast Premium Security will notify you if any of your passwords, or saved information, has been leaked or stolen. From there, you can change passwords and take further actions to protect yourself. This feature is free on mobile devices for one account. Along with the three core features, APS covers malware threats, remote hacking, webcam spying, and photo encryption for mobile devices.
You can choose a single device plan that will cover one PC or one Mac, or choose a multi-device plan that will cover up to ten devices: Mac computers, PCs, Android phones and tablets, iPhones, and iPads. APS is activated on mobile devices and tablets through the free Avast Mobile Security app. Avast offers many discounts for monthly or annual subscriptions for both device plans. It also provides a 30-day free trial for all devices so that you can test out features.
