Hi all

New feature testing: Email Guardian (21.10.2498)


Hello all,

I'm pleased to share with you that we have a new cloud-based feature called Email Guardian debuting in our latest beta build, 21.10.2498.

Download links
Avast free https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamil.../platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA
Avast premium https://bits.avcdn.net/productfamil.../platform_WIN/installertype_ONLINE/build_BETA


Feature Overview
- Be warned of malicious emails and phishing scams when checking your hotmail, outlook, msn or live email from any web browser, on any device!

- Email Guardian extends your current Mail Shield protection from email apps on your PC to your online mailbox. This includes It's like having Avast installed directly in Outlook in the cloud.

- Click Email Guardian from your Security menu to set it up. Then check your emails like normal. There's no need to change your habits, because Email Guardian works automatically.

Also, please note that Email Guardian does not collect or store any of your emails. If it detects a malicious email, it only flags it for you within your Outlook account. It's up to you to decide what to do with the email after that.

If anyone has feedback or questions, please post in this topic.

Thanks!

With best Regards
Mops21

@Mops21 Do you know if the new Avast One (free version) firewall is still minimal or can you set it to prompt to allow or deny for connections?
