The mobile app of Avast VPN is good, but not as basic when compared to other providers. Its iOS app requires a subscription, which is available through Apple’s App Store. The PC and Mac client comes with an initial trial version that doesn’t require any details for payment. If you decide to buy the software it comes with a 30 day refund guarantee.

The apps are easy to use and stylish. It only takes a single tap to connect to a web server and to switch locations, you can select a location on the home screen. The apps offer a limited options for settings and advanced options, but novice users will likely appreciate the simplicity. It’s also a plus that they’re almost identical across all devices.

Avast has enhanced its VPN offerings over the last few months. The apps are more accessible to consumers and Avast has also introduced a robust, 24/7 customer support system, and has simplified its three-tier pricing structure. It has also made some significant technological improvements, such as adding its own Mimic protocol and introducing faster connection speeds.

Avast SecureLine is a solid and affordable choice for those who require a reliable VPN service for daily use. A kill switch blocks data transmission if the connection drops. Furthermore, it supports multiple protocols that include OpenVPN over TCP and UDP ports IKEv2 over IPsec on MacOS and IPSec over SSL/TLS on Android. It has a A256-bit AES encrypted connection and supports up to 10 devices at once.
