#1 antivirus for free

Fast, light and powerful free protection. It's just a click away

What’s inside the latest version?

A beautifully intuitive interface, advanced application protection, a new passive mode for running multiple security products in parallel — and a little something for you gamers and movie buffs.

You

But I’m backing up my files to the cloud.

Avast

That’s a good habit. But the problem is that the ransomware-encrypted version of your files gets immediately synced with the cloud too...so unless your backup solution stores historical versions of your files, you’re in trouble.

Avoid becoming the victim of digital extortion

Ransomware is quickly becoming one of the most common — and dangerous — types of malware out there. Avast Free Antivirus protects your devices against havoc-wreaking ransomware so you don’t become the victim of digital extortion.

TECH CORNER
Like the name suggests, ransomware is the digital equivalent of a hostage situation. Hackers use ransomware to encrypt the personal files on your computer or phone, preventing you from accessing them until you — you guessed it — pay a ransom. Avast Free Antivirus blocks ransomware before it can get anywhere near your files — let alone encrypt them. And don’t worry about accessing and using all of your files (documents, photos, etc.) as you normally would; ransomware protection works quietly in the background.
