avast! Account now linked to avast! Forums

A recent discovery, although it was mentioned in their FAQ that they would soon integrate the avast! account with their Forums. It is now live.

See avast! Account FAQs here:
https://my.avast.com/en-gb/#faq

If you have an avast! account linked to your avast antivirus security products, you can now access the avast! forums without creating a new account. If you wish to start posting on their boards, remember you can change your display name, or you can remain to use the default.

You can create a new username by clicking the link below:

Testing the new avast! Account

This was announced in May 2014, to Beta Test the new Avast! Portal / Account.

Hi everyone!

After some time, we are beta testing new my.avast.com and we are interested in your feedback.
  • We have completely redesigned the UI to meet desktop as well as mobile needs.
  • There's a brand new section called Facebook security which may help with Facebook privacy issues.
Please, be aware that it is still a beta and some parts are still under development.
We would appreciate your feedback and suggestions which can influence the final version.

If you are interested in giving it a go you can find the new beta running here:
https://my-new.avast.com/

For the power geeks we have prepared sort of a "command line mode". Just press SPACEBAR anywhere in the site.

There are some known bugs we are still aware of:
  • FB security:
    If you use filters, your threats may not be sorted from latest to oldest properly.
  • Incomplete localizations:
    New UI for my.avast is currently ready only in English. We are working on other languages.
  • Browsers:
    IE, FF, Safari on Mac - icons may not be aligned properly in these browsers.
  • Safari on Mac:
    On device info page, Commands and Notifications tabs have layout issues.
  • Spacebar search:
    Still work in progress.
Sincerely yours.
my.avast.com team

Facebook Security by avast!
+ Little is known, but requires permissions to a lot of your information. Got any privacy concerns?

Google Drive, Account Settings and Connect with Social Media sites.
+ Notifications and Google Drive settings are associated with your Android device (for Antivrius and Anti-Theft Premium).

Else, "Email notification settings are disabled because you have no Android devices" and "Google Drive settings are disabled because you have no Android devices".
