Hi all

NEW Avast Version 21.7 (August 2021)

NEW Avast Version 21.7 (August 2021)

Hi, all. Please welcome the newest version of Avast AV: 21.7 (21.7.2481)


Public announcements
  • Big changes to Firewall! — We've redesigned our Firewall, improved its protection, and made it free for everyone to use. If you've got Avast Free Antivirus, you'll find your new Firewall in your Protection menu. It's already turned on and protecting you. If you've got Avast Premium Security, we've upgraded you to "Premium Firewall" to also prevent your computer from leaking sensitive info to the network and warn you if a malicious device tries to intercept your data or scan your computer via open ports.
  • Unresolved threat reminders — We'll now remind you about any unresolved threats found by scan you may not have seen before your computer was last shut down
  • Silent Mode fix — We've fixed a bug that prevented you from turning off Silent Mode if Do Not Disturb Mode was on

Some more clarification about the new Firewall. Only a smaller portion of users will actually get it enabled in 21.7 release as we still want to observe it and test it a bit more before major fullscale on all userbase (of course, only those users who will actually get it are informed about it through our product on their device). You can expect the full-scale to happen in 5-8 weeks. When it comes to upcoming beta releases, all of those will already have it enabled in full.

Bug fixes and improvements for:
  • Fixed an issue where ASB couldn't connect to the internet when installed along with Opera
  • Fixed cases where detection dialogs were not shown for detections when apps were full-screen
  • We've updated our UI renderer CEF to the latest version (ver. 4472) and plugged some security holes along the way
  • Fixed an unpleasant behavior where some code components were invoked twice after the in-app cart was closed
  • Fixed cases where licenses were not properly delivered with sole internet proxy
  • Fixed an issue where the restart dialog was not shown when Do Not Disturb Mode was active
  • Fixed an issue where clear utility did not start properly for systems that lacked SSE3 support
  • Added proper context for users stuck on version 21.2 due to outdated OS and provided instructions how to update from Win7

As usual a big thanks goes to the team for yet another successful release!

How to install:

1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program

2. Or you can download and install files:

Online installers (recommended):
Offline installers:
