Connecting Devices to account
« on: September 19, 2014, 12:49:49 AM »
Strange artifact on account page and email address on overview page of GUI.


Why do you insist on adding the account email address to the overview page of the GUI? Why is this important?


see attachments.


The GUI looks very nice.

My best guess is - The email address essentially lets you know which my.avast.com account that/those avast installation/s device/s is/are connected to.

Where are you capturing the second image from - OK found it.

I don't have those artefacts, but they are where there should be an image. Try an avast repair and see if that resolves it.

Hi,

yes email is mentioned to identify the connected account. I know about the problem in V8, but there it was permanent in header, here it's just on the Overview screen. We will soon add more info to the email so it will make more sense.

The account page will be changed as well in next beta.
