Title: Hardened Mode on Avast 19.2
Post by: shmu26 on February 11, 2019, 07:21:46 AM
So Hardened mode now has only one level, I don't see a button for Hardened/Aggressive.
A couple questions:
1 What level is Hardened mode set to?
2 How can I test if it is working?

            2.It is only work if it is encounted  with any rare unknown files.

Does not seem as sensitive but maybe Avast's safe program/file database has increased.

If I made a Hardened mode exception, can I later remove the exception?
I don't see it in the regular Exceptions list.
