Good news everyone,
new stable version 18.6.2349 has just been released. This time it's more about fixes and internal improvements.


What's new:

- Do Not Disturb Mode replaces Game Mode and adds support for non-game apps too

- Edge extension replaces the Internet Explorer one (Get Avast Online Security - Microsoft Store)

- Support for scanning TLS 1.3 traffic via Web Shield (Chrome, Firefox)

- Automatic redirect to search page if domain isn't found

Fixed:

- Firewall notification not displayed when network changed
- Detection dialog not displayed for Web Shield when set to Ask
- Wrong reporting of Wi-Fi Inspector scan progress percent
- Site blocking works again
- Rescue disc
- Reporting of AV and Firewall state to Windows Security Center
- Explorer scan result not added to Notification Center
- Removed Enable offline mode option in free version tray icon
