In inglese per favore
Finally Avast Free has added "limited notification" in the notification settings which shows alerts when a malicious attack is detected, but blocks any pop-up offers. :I approve
So, finally, commercial pop-ups with offers should not appear for those who do not want to view them.
I'm using version 23.12.6094 (build 23.12.8700.813) and UI (1.0.793)

Comparison charts:

Bitdefender Free:

"Offers the most advanced security standards for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS devices" and below not available in the free version.

Avast One Essential:

Antivirus Comparison | Choose the Right Protection | Avast

"Stop webcam spies" and below not available in the free version.

Avast Free:

I think the difference is that for Avast One Free everything is installed (also, no dark mode?), while for Avast Free you have to choose to install features like the firewall, etc.
