Hi all

New Avast version 20.7.2425


Hi all, please welcome Avast version 20.7 (20.7.2425)

The latest news:
  • Signing in via Google or Facebook - If you choose one of these to sign in, we’ll now redirect you to their websites instead of doing it inside of our app
  • Fixed shield statuses - The on/off statuses for Password Protection and Remote Access Shield are now properly reflected in your UI. (Avast Premium Security only)
  • Improved performance - Your antivirus now runs even smoother thanks to tighter integrations with the Windows registry and boot optimizations
Something extra for out beta users:
  • In the latest 20.7 BETA version, you can now try GUI in the updated design (based on our Avast Omni edition). Just go to Settings -> General -> Troubleshooting -> Theme. Please note that some UI parts are still in the original design and that there are improvements yet to be made in navigation. Though we would like to hear your opinion in this early stage.
From 100+ tasks related to this release, here’s some highlights of things we’ve fixed and improved:
  • The incorrect yellow dashboard state after a new version was released, even though auto-updates were on
  • The incorrect "expired" dashboard status after an upgrade from free to paid [AVG only]
  • SmartScan stopping caused UI freezing in some cases
  • Firewall Public mode was not blocking ICMP responses while scanning, but now it does
  • Fixed impact of new CEF on IPM content and IDP
  • Fixes in restoring settings from backup files
  • Changing language needed you to restart, which was not intended
  • The incorrect handling of file size in virus chest was preventing more files to be added
  • Rescue disk now checks for USB drive size
How to install:

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

We hope you enjoy the new version and big thanks to all that made this happen!

With best Regards
