Avast VPN offers a decent mobile experience, but it’s not the best when compared to other top providers. Its iOS app requires a subscription, which is available through Apple’s App Store. There is a free version of the PC and Mac client that does not require payment information. If you decide to purchase the product, it comes with a 30 day refund guarantee.
The apps are simple to use and stylish. It takes just one tap to connect to a website server, and to change locations you can choose a country on the home screen. The apps offer a limited range of options for settings and advanced options, but novice users are likely to appreciate this simplicity. It’s an added bonus that they’re virtually identical across all devices.
Avast has redesigned its VPN services over the past few months. The apps are more accessible to consumers and the company has added a 24/7 customer service system, and also simplified its three-tier pricing structure. It has also made some significant technical improvements, including adding its own Mimic protocol and introducing faster connection speeds.
Avast SecureLine is a solid, affordable option for those who require an efficient VPN service for daily use. A kill switch blocks data transmission if the connection goes down. It also supports multiple protocols including OpenVPN on TCP and UDP IKEv2 on IPsec for MacOS and IPSec on SSL/TLS for Android. It supports SSL 256-bit AES encrypted connection and can be used on up to 10 devices at a time.
