Avast Business Antivirus, Avast Business Antivirus Pro, Avast Business Antivirus Pro Plus, Avast Business Patch Management, Avast Business Management Console, Avast Business Antivirus for Mac, Avast Business Antivirus for Linux

(collectively as “Antivirus for Desktop”)

Core Functionality

The Antivirus for Desktop provides protection against malicious software by performing key tasks, such as pinpointing specific files for the detection of malwares, scheduling automatic scans, and securing your device against malware.

What are Product’s Main Features

  • CommunityIQ is a threat monitoring service for Windows and Mac which sends information about a threat detected in your device to our server, so we can observe how the threat spreads and block it. This is vital for the functioning of our Antivirus and our ability to keep your device secure.
  • CyberCapture detects and analyses rare, suspicious files on your Windows. If you attempt to run such a file, CyberCapture locks the file from your PC and sends it to our Threat Lab where it is analysed in a safe, virtual environment. All files are uploaded over an encrypted connection, which means your data is inaccessible to hackers.
  • File Reputation provides a real-time comparison with an up-to-date list of malware databases of executable files sourced from users of Windows who agree to participate in the service. FileRep processes files or their hashed versions to evaluate which are infectious and updating virus databases.
  • Online Security is a browser plug-in which needs to be specifically activated which checks if the site isn’t malicious or phishing.
  • Browser Cleanup is a module inside Antivirus for Desktop (Windows) which inspects the browser extensions of most browsers, tries to identify malicious extensions and offers to remove them. Browser Cleanup is on by default.
  • Web Shield scans data that is transferred when you browse the internet in real-time to prevent malware from being downloaded and run on your computer. By default, Web Shield is on and configured to provide optimal protection when switched on.
  • Hack Alerts when enabled, it searches and monitors email addresses associated with your Account for data breaches to alert you when your data has been compromised in a breach and your information is exposed on the dark web. This is done in cooperation with our partner SpyCloud which checks your credentials against its repository of stolen accounts. For further information please refer to its privacy policy here.

Antivirus for Mobile (Android)

Official Product Name

Avast Mobile Security, Avast Mobile Security Premium (collectively as “Antivirus for Mobile (Android)”)

Core Functionality

Antivirus for Mobile (Android) provides people with essential mobile security with added privacy and performance-boosting features. Block malware, check the safety of installed apps, scan public Wi-Fi networks for possible security weaknesses, and locate your phone if it becomes lost or stolen — all with a single app.

What are Product’s Main Features

  • Device Scan scans your device or a specific file for malware apps and files and various types of security vulnerabilities.
  • Wi-Fi Security and Speed Check enables you to scan your network for vulnerabilities, and tests the speed of the network.
  • Web Shield detects and notifies you when accessing a malicious website that could represent a potential security risk for you.
  • Anti-Theft is designed to protect your private mobile data and help you recover your device in case of loss or theft. This feature is off by default. When you choose to turn it on, you can request location on demand from my.avast.com. Anti-Theft is designed to protect data residing on your mobile phone in the event of theft. For Anti-Theft to function, we must collect and store information about your phone and its approved users. We use this data to locate and identify your lost devices. If the phone was stolen, it may block the thief from using the device. The collected data is used to provide you the functionality. Within Anti-Theft there is a Last Known Location premium feature which is also off by default. When you activate the feature, we send more frequent location updates to the server to help you track your device's last known location.
  • App Locking is a paid feature, which protects your sensitive apps with a PIN, pattern, or fingerprint.
  • App Insights consists of three features: App Usage, Data Usage and App Permissions. App Insights requires your device user permission in order to work and we ask you for this permission (if not granted yet). When you grant the permission, we keep the data from your list of installed apps stored locally in your phone’s database. App Usage provides information about how much time you spend using each app. App Permissions allows you to view which permissions are required by each of your installed apps. Data Usage monitors your data consumption and helps you avoid additional charges by notifying you when you approach the limit. This feature requires access to IMEI and IMSI.
  • Boost RAM kills apps running in the background of your device.
  • Clean Junk analyzes the space on your device and displays the amount of storage space that is being used by junk files.
  • Photo Vault allows you to protect access to your photos with a PIN code.
  • Hack Alerts when enabled, it searches and monitors email addresses associated with your Account for data breaches to alert you when your data has been compromised in a breach and your information is exposed on the dark web. This is done in cooperation with our partner SpyCloud which checks your credentials against its repository of stolen accounts. For further information please refer to its privacy policy here.

    BreachGuard

    Official Product Name

    BreachGuard

    Core Functionality

    Our goal is to enable people to take back their privacy online. Remediate past breaches and minimise the risk of abuse of their data in the future. We aim to provide convenient solutions for everyday life online without sacrificing privacy.

    1. Enabling users to discover and fix online privacy threats.
    2. Prevent data collection by companies and data brokers.
    3. Educating users about privacy and security online.

    What are Product’s Features

    • Risk Monitor is 24/7 dark web monitoring for leaked personal information. BreachGuard leverages the most comprehensive database of the dark web – it detects whether users have been compromised in a breach and their information is exposed on the dark web. If we identify new breaches we alert you based on the email address you submitted. This is done in cooperation with our partner SpyCloud which checks your credentials against its repository of stolen accounts. For further information please refer to its privacy policy here. The feature also has the capability, if you consent, to scan your browser for weak, reused or breached passwords and provides instructions to fix these passwords.
    • Personal info remover submits opt-out requests to data brokers in North America. This feature processes names (first name, middle name, last name), address (street, city, country, state, zip code), phone number, email and Date of Birth (DOB). The reason for this is that data broker opt-out forms require some of, if not all of the information to submit a valid opt-out request and verify that you are in fact in their database. As a result, we collect this basic information from you to submit the opt-out requests on your behalf.
    • Privacy Advisor provides updates and guidance related to online privacy, including but not limited to: recent data breaches and guides to optimize your privacy for social media sites and other common services. If you opt-in, this functionality will process your bookmarks and browsing history to improve the quality of content so we can distinguish guides which are relevant to you (we are not processing full urls but we need only the domain name).

This means that these coupons are relevant to specific domains, and sometimes specific pages only. In order to be able to offer relevant coupons, we need to check the current page URL against a list of available offers.
    • Price Comparison looks for specific portions of the HTML code which allows it to identify basic information about the product you are shopping for – product name, SKU and current price. We then compare this information with a database of prices provided by our partners, and offer cheaper prices for the same product where available.

    Information about available offers, coupons or cheaper prices is obtained from Ciuvo. We request this content based on the information obtained from the page, your language settings, country level location and search query within SafePrice.

    Core Functionality

    Secure Browser for Desktop is a product currently offered for PC Windows and for macOS users.

    What are Product’s Features

    • Browser Security & Privacy Center is built in Security & Privacy Center which is a curated collection of some key security and privacy features, tools and settings, organized into one management console making it easier for you to control and manage your online privacy and security.
    • Anti-Phishing protects you from accessing dangerous websites, such as fake sites, sites that have harmful programs such as adware, spyware, ransomware, viruses, all types of other malware that aim at stealing your information.
    • Privacy Cleaner cleans all your browser history, all cookies including 3rd party, cached images, and other tracking scripts with just one click, to ensure that your online activity is private as well as free up space on your device.
    • Private Mode allows you to surf the web privately without saving your browsing history, cookies and other site data or information entered in the websites that you have visited. When browsing with Private Mode you also have Anti-track, Adblock, and Anti-phishing enabled by default to ensure maximum privacy.
    • Adblock stops ads from loading on the webpages you visit making your online experience cleaner, faster, safer, and more private. Avast Adblock has 3 states (Essential, Balanced and Strict) to allow you to set your own adblocking level in order to customise your online browsing.
    • Anti-Tracking protects you from being tracked or monitored by websites you visit. Anti-Tracking technology blocks tracking scripts and cookies from being loaded on the websites or downloaded to your computer.
    • Anti-Fingerprinting disguises your unique browser fingerprint (i.e. browser type, browser version, extensions, etc.) to help prevent websites from identifying and tracking you without your consent. Anti-Fingerprinting might cause some websites to break as it hides your information that sometimes is needed in order for the website to load (i.e. online banking they rely on your device’s information to ensure that it is you).
    • Sync means you can sign into the browser using your Avast ID or Google account. Your browsing data (including bookmarks, history, settings, open tabs, passwords, address, phone numbers, and payment information) will be then backed up and available across all your devices. If you sign into the browser using your Avast ID, we receive information that you sync across devices in encrypted form and we are not able to access it or read it.
    • Built-in VPN (virtual private network) that creates an encrypted connection between your device and the internet, securing your browsing data against eavesdroppers, trackers, and hackers. This VPN feature does not track or store connection timestamps, session information, bandwidth usage, traffic data, IP addresses, or other similar in nature data. Using a VPN will keep you more private and secure but you are still accountable for everything you do online

    Personal Data We Process

    By default, Secure Browser for Desktop processes locally on your system the following data:

    • Browsing history information; for example Secure Browser for Desktop may store the URLs of pages that you visit, a cache of text, images and other resources from those pages. If the pre-rendering feature is turned on, a list of IP addresses linked to those pages may also be stored for some period of time;
    • Name, surname, email or passwords to help you fill out forms or signs in to sites you visit;
    • Permission that you have granted to websites;
    • Cookies or data from websites that you visit;
    • Data saved by add-ons;
    • Record of what you downloaded from websites;
    • Any feedback which you decide to share with us.

      Secure Browser for Mobile

      Official Product Name

      Avast Secure Browser for Android and Avast Secure Browser for iOS (collectively as “Secure Browser for Mobile”)

      Core Functionality

      Secure Browser for Mobile is a private mobile browser offered for Android and iOS users.

      What are Product’s Features

      • Browser Security & Privacy Center is built in Security & Privacy Center which is a curated collection of some key security and privacy features, tools and settings, organized into one management console making it easier for you to control and manage your online privacy and security.
      • Adblock stops ads being shown in your browser using publicly available so called blocking lists. AdBlock usually does not remove ads, it already prevents them from being loaded and thus also speeds up browser experience.
      • Anti-Tracking prevents the user from being tracked across websites by avoiding tracking cookies to be created. This is done using publicly available so called blocking lists. Anti-Tracking usually does not remove the tracking cookies, instead it already prevents them from being loaded and created and thus also speeds up browser experience.
      • Anti-Fingerprinting prevents the user from being tracked across websites using browser fingerprinting techniques. As fingerprinting itself cannot be prevented or avoided, this feature prevents being tracked by altering the digital fingerprint of the users browser or PC combination in a way that third-party sites cannot re-identify it.
      • Built-in VPN (virtual private network) creates an encrypted tunnel between your device and the internet, securing your browsing data against eavesdroppers.
      • Nuke cleans your browser history, cached images, cookies including both first-party and third-party cookies, and other junk with just one click for a specified domain, to keep your activity on that domain private and free up disk space.
      • Remove Site Data cleans your browser history, site cookies, and offline data with the current site with just one click, to keep your activity private and free up disk space.
      • Video Downloader enables you to download videos from supported websites to your device.
      • Media Vault allocates your files, including those you download during your browsing sessions, to the browser application’s encrypted file system. These files are stored on your device and are accessible through the browser application.
      • Secure Mode encrypts your DNS queries, stops ads being shown in your browser, prevents your browsing history from being stored, and removes any tracking cookies (both first-party cookies and third-party cookies) or web cache you pick up during that browsing session.
      • Secure & Private Mode creates an encrypted tunnel between your device and the internet, encrypts your DNS queries, stops ads being shown in your browser, prevents your browsing history from being stored, and removes any tracking cookies (both first-party cookies and third-party cookies) or web cache you pick up during that browsing session.
      • PIN Protection secures your device against real world threats from local attacks by locking access to the browser application on your device with a unique code only you know. Your PIN Code is encrypted on disk and is not stored on any servers.
      • Sync means you can sign into the browser using your Avast ID. Your browsing data (including bookmarks, history, settings, open tabs, passwords, address, phone numbers, and payment information) will be then backed up and available across all your devices. If you sign into the browser using your Avast ID, we receive information that you sync across devices in encrypted form and we are not able to access it or read it.

      Core Functionality

      WebTrails is a browser extension (or plug-in) available for Chrome. It provides an alternative view of browsing history with detailed analysis and visualisations of privacy leaks and behaviour patterns. All reports are generated locally in the browser and no data is sent out to any remote servers.

      All analyses are performed on-demand, on the device and with the data stored in your browser. No history data for these analyses is stored.

      What are Product’s Features

      • PII leak detection looks for any personal data (e.g., plaintext names, emails) in URLs visited, based on the Chrome browsing history.
      • Habits generates browsing behaviour habits charts, based on URLs.
      • Social, Search, Video and Locations provides detailed usage reports. Location information is derived from the URLs.
