Hi all

New Avast version 20.6.2420


Hi all, please welcome Avast 20.6

Here is the top new stuff:

Simplified privacy settings - We've updated our privacy settings to make it easier to manage your privacy
  • Payment notification - If for any reason your payment fails during an automatic subscription renewal, we’ll now let you know on the main Dashboard
What was fixed:
  • Malfunctioned Chrome distribution upon install
  • Nasty Passive mode error (frozen UI, disabled service)
  • Some more rare Rescue Disk creation failures
  • IDP incorrectly stating that detection can/can't be removed
  • Handle leak
  • Heap corruption fix
  • UI issues when Remote Access Shield or Real Site were disabled as custom install components
  • Tray icon misbehavior when enabling/disabling components
  • Disabling confusing Firewall toaster on Unidentified network

How to install:

1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program
2. Or you can download and install files:

Online installers (recommended):
Offline installers:

We hope you enjoy the new version!
AVAST Team

With best Regards

Thanks for the update.

It would be catastrophic if a paying customer's payment failed and resulted in their PC getting infected, because it didn't activate the Premium Security.

Get the drift..

I wonder how that works ... less data stealing

Malfunctioned Chrome distribution upon install
Haven't use Avast properly in 2 years, so I assume this is the latest stable version as of 7th Aug 2020.

"Install Google Chrome" is opt-in now. (y)
