At least they keep adding Bloatware...
Actually their cloud detection is great, however their BB isn‘t. HIPS do a lot though.
yes they excell at adding unwanted / useless bloatware , very bad customer suport and spying on their customers....I did sent customer support a message , asking them why the heck the avira engine got removed in this release. ofcourse NO answer yet , and I do not expect an answer from them at all. I still have a premium license that will expire in june next year , but i will not renew , especially when the remove the only good thing from the product...

Can you provide a link to your claims?

To be fair, all anti-virus and malware protection software has full access to your PC and data, once installed. They scan your files, bypass encrypted traffic, upload suspicious file data. Browser extensions can read your full history and modify/manipulate your web experience.

Is it really that different to what other "American" and "European" security software already do?

I wonder if there will be much difference in detection rates, now that they are only using their own signatures? I presume there won't be much of a drop, considering that the detection rate from their own heuristics and signatures is very good.
