Avast VPN's mobile app is good, but not as simple when compared with other providers. Its iOS app requires an account, which is available through Apple's App Store. The PC and Mac client offers a free trial version that doesn't require payment details. If you decide to buy the software it comes with a 30 day refund guarantee.
The apps are sleek and easy to use. The only thing you need to do to connect to a server is a single tap, and changing locations is as simple as selecting the country from the home screen. The apps offer a limited options for settings and advanced options, but novice users will likely appreciate this ease of use. It's an added bonus that they're almost identical across all devices.
In the past few months, Avast has been improving its VPN offerings. The apps have been made more user-friendly. Avast has also introduced an on-call customer service that is available 24/7 and simplified its three-tiered price structure. The company has also made significant technological improvements, such as adding its own Mimic protocol and introducing faster connection times.
Avast SecureLine offers a reliable VPN for use in everyday life at a low cost. Its features include a kill switch which blocks data from being transmitted if the connection fails. It also supports multiple protocols including OpenVPN on TCP and UDP IKEv2 on IPsec for MacOS and IPSec on SSL/TLS for Android. It is backed by an impressive 256-bit AES encryption and enables up to 10 devices to be connected at once.
