Malware and other data threats are nothing new nowadays, but as time passes, they continue to evolve and find new ways to invade and infect your computer. Avast Premium Security is an antivirus that gives its users full security coverage. It is equipped with features that could not only detect threats but as well as prevent them before they could even do any damage.
One of Avast Premium Security’s important features is its anti-phishing technology. As mentioned above, there are now more ways to invade user privacy and steal information besides infiltrating computers through infected hard drives and files. Phishing is a way to bait users to give enough relevant information that can be used to hack into their accounts. It is obviously less complicated compared to other hacking methods, and people are most likely to fall for it. Avast’s anti-phishing feature is here to prevent that from happening. Unlike other antivirus software, Avast is able to detect and pinpoint suspicious websites even without having to install a web extension for it. As soon as the software detects potential threats, it will alert its users through a pop-up message that will appear in the middle of their screen. Avast will have the website temporarily blocked until a scan is conducted to prove that the website is safe.
