Hi all,

new beta version is live: 2016.12.1.2267
In this beta we focused on internal improvements and bugfixes.


+ Boot-time scan download dialog fixed
+ New CyberCapture feature is now part of DeepScreen (further explanation will come)
+ When Avast Firewall is turned off, Windows Firewall is started
+ Fixed crash which occurred when offline user tried to initiate a SecureLine connection
+ Fixed GUI freeze after license insertion
+ SafeZone - fixed possible problem with initialization of Bank mode (Pay mode is now Bank mode)
+ Changes in the registration process to the Windows Security Center

Known issues:

- SafeZone Browser - Dummy notifications and landing pages of Pay mode
- Missing firewal profile selection dialog after installation and reboot


+ In the next beta, the boot-time scan will be enabled again for offline users (this decision was based on your feedback from the last beta). However, extended package of virus definitions will be still offered for download when the boot-time scan is scheduled.

Download links as usual or just update your current beta.
