Everything and everybody spying on the internet. There is not something that surprises me. And personally I do not care. But i can not Compare Avast with Sophos. Is like compare B.M.W. with LADAAvast/AVG isn't really even a viable option with all of the questionable business practices and spying, right?
What @Evjl's Rain has said for ages is that avast/avg has better behaviour blocker and sophos bb is below averageAvast/AVG isn't really even a viable option with all of the questionable business practices and spying, right?
Product wise the sophos is still in 2018 , where avast/avg is @ 2019 already. Sophos should push something new this year atleast
I created the account and it showed I have the premium version for 1 month, but there is a button which allows you to give up the trial and move to the free version.Create an account & choose free download, or vice-versa. I forget which order it is. I did not want the free trial either because the premium modules still load and run even when you disable them.
Sophos Home is and will be kept developed and improved, any rumor of it going down is a misinfo. There's a small team of Dev's behind Sophos Home, so don't expect sudden changes nor the announcement of them droping that project. You can check news from time to time in their official Naked Security page. Patience is virtue.
