Good news everyone!
New AV version 19.6.2383 has just been released.

What's NEW:

A smarter Smart Scan - We've redesigned our Smart Scan to be better than ever, and you can now even schedule it
Improved performance - We've reduced the amount of disk and CPU usage our antivirus needs during the installation of other apps
Improved stability - We've unified some headers across the app for greater stability
A cleaner goodbye - If you ever uninstall us (gasp!), we now do a better job of removing all our files
Bug stomping - Sensitive Data Shield scans no longer finish prematurely, and Mail Shield no longer blocks connections if it can't connect to an IPv6 address
Game on! - We're now more compatible with games that use anti-cheating measures (e.g., League of Legends)


How to install:

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

2. Or you can download and install from here:

Online installers (recommended):
Free: https://bits.avcdn.net/insttype_FREE
Internet Security: https://bits.avcdn.net/insttype_IS
Premier: https://bits.avcdn.net/insttype_APR

Hi all

New Avast beta version 19.7.2386

Known issues
  • Webshield blocks internet after a period of a time (e.g. a week)

Hi all

New Avast version 19.7.2388


Hello, please do welcome Avast version 19.7
(19.7.2388)

What's exciting here that we have officially launched the new Antivirus portfolio, effectively sun-setting Pro, Internet Security, and Premier while replacing it with Premium Security. In a nutshell, this means that from now on, all paid AV features are available to all AV customers (yey!) and there are no more paid AV tiers. And we have this in Single and Multi-Device flavors. Multi-Device subscription is supporting platforms: Win, Mac OS, iOS and Android.

Of course, in reality, it is a bit more complicated than that - users would be migrated in waves during several upcoming weeks - but we're getting closer to a neat and tidy AV portfolio.

The whole license migration matrix is a beast, but these examples should cover the majority of cases:
  • Avast Premier users (all seat variants) -> Avast Premium Security Multi-Device
  • Avast Internet Security 1 Seat -> Avast Premium Security
  • Avast Internet Security 3+ Seats -> Avast Premium Security Multi-Device
  • Avast Pro 1 Seat -> Avast Premium Security
  • Avast Pro 3+ Seats -> Avast Premium Security Multi-device
If you want to check the status of your license, head to My Subscriptions and check your subscription (for multi-device variants, this word needs to be mentioned specifically in the subscription name - if it is not, it means it was not yet migrated).

We aim to support new program versions of IS and PRO for several upcoming months - we would stop releasing new versions sometimes in early 2020.

Hope you do welcome this change as we do.

Some of the other features/fixes in this release:
  • We can now automatically shut down your PC after a Full, Targeted, or Custom scan
  • Quick Scans can now be added to your custom scans and scheduled for any time you’d like
  • Added an option to Enable/Disable QUIC scanning in Settings
  • Separating consents for Google Analytics and Jumpshot tracking in Settings
  • Fixed issue in explorer scan where toaster was displayed just on the first occasion
  • Fixed memory leak in aswStm.sys driver
  • Fixed not working mail messages in Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Fix of occasional blocking of MS Windows 10 update by self-defense
  • Fix of problems with nested virtualization (VBox/VMware)Affected Products and Release Date
How to install:

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

2. Or you can download and install from here:

Online installers (recommended):
(For Premium Security, just use Premier URLs for now - later on, we would amend these.)

Offline installers:
We hope you enjoy the new version!
