I have user keys for both that I received for free / nearly free. I am looking for an objective opinion of which security software to go with on both Windows and Android.

I am interested to see if there are any specific objective reasons (or maybe some subjective) for why I should run one software over the other.

Thanks!

I believe that with these two choices, there is less confusion since they are going in different directions.
Avast if you want to adjust things in your settings, and F-Secure if you want to install and leave it alone.

From looking at the feature comparison, I think Avast is more in line with your preferences. F-Secure doesn't have so many active settings. :)

I have to agree. F Secure is fabulous, but Avast! is, in some cases, bulletproof. IMHO ✌️

Avast was quite open about the data it used & published the info openly & I don't remember any lying - Out of the two AV's I feel AVAST is the more robust & maybe better protection, F-Secure very light if that makes a big difference, (it does to me) Both very good products, & both are on my list of liked AV's & there aren't many on the list :):)

F-Secure for sure!
btw If you want to share your data with another people you may use Avast :)
