Title: I DON'T CARE ABOUT AVAST OMNI, STOP SHOVING IT DOWN MY THROAT
Post by: Jesse121 on November 29, 2019, 09:53:01 PM
Seriously, why do you keep showing me this stupid avast omni crap? I don't want it! So what, I have an Amazon Alexa, big deal. But I don't need some extra layer of protection for my smart hub, when I have no idea what the hell it does. Other AV software doesn't have these nagging prompts, why is Avast have so many now? What if that person doesn't want Avast Omni but yet they keep forcing down that person's face? I'm about ready to ditch Avast for Windows Defender, Avast is a giant turd, possibly even moreso than AVG.

You didn't mention what version of Avast you're currently using.

When you use the free version, there will be occasional ads.
I'm currently using Avast Omni and am very happy with the product.

That's correct.
There really aren't that many ads.
