According to RejZoR SafeZone Browser shows 8 processes running even when not using the browser. I would say that is a bit much.

Sorry but I don't see any process running unless the browser is running.

Support Ticket: #BYU-790-31187
AVAST ACCOUNT BUG IN AVAST GUI
CREATED: 01 APRIL 2015 22:17
UPDATED: 02 OCTOBER 2015 23:39


TO AVAST DEVELOPERS:

Long story short. During that time mentioned above I had Avast Free 2015 R2 SP1 2015.10.2.2215. This bug I discovered was in the previous two versions of Avast 2015 and it happens after you sign in to avast account via Avast GUI. Signing in is fine, but when you see the pie chart what features you have installed i.e. Avast Software Updater and etc. It shows not installed and in red colour. I tried everything did repair and restarted (nothing happens). I uninstalled avast via add/remove, used avast uninstall utility and the tool ran my computer in safe mode, followed instructions, installed a fresh copy of Avast 2015, and restarted (still nothing happens). Avast Support tech is now aware of this and gave my feedback to the team which is working on it so that they can count it in when developing the aforementioned update and  major changes i.e. in this regard will be applied in the next major update expected in a couple of months.

Full details, descriptions, and screenshots are all available in that support ticket. I hope to see this fixed in beta/RC/and final release of Avast 2016. I don't install beta programs because I use my laptop for personal use. Thanks.

Can someone please report my post to moderators so an avast team member can have a look at it. This bug has been in for a long time since Avast 2015. Thanks.

Despite the reported problems of access and Avast account for the fact that during the updating of the definitions does not write the date of the last update I have to say that as time scanning and protection this beta 2016 is much better than the release in 2015 and I'm trying on Windows 10

Updated from the latest stable to .2234 via GUI.
On the first glance everything worked as advertised, but then I saw this remark in the main GUI (see picture "DNS"):
"Secure DNS can't run on this network"
Since I did not alter anything on my network I am wondering if there is any new requirements for networks to allow working of "Secure DNS". It was always working with versions .2233 and earlier.

Multiple reboots, "Repair", "Clean Install" and switching "Secure DNS" off and on did have no effect!
Did I miss something?

Hi guys :)

I was a few days away from home, but now I have ( finally ) joined Beta testing.
First thing I noticed, is that I have an issue with my Avast Account in the UI ( 2nd screenshot ).
And there is the issue with Secure DNS, although I don't think that is Beta related.

First impressions of the SafeZone browser :

- I would prefer if Avast creates a SafeZone browser desktop icon by default ( like in the old version ), although you can easy create one yourself.
- The SafeZone user interface is pretty "massive" ( see screenshots ). I would prefer a more "minimal" interface.

With much interest I see that even if you have Windows 10 you page appears content offline when trying to authenticate in avast account.

For developers: as an update on Build 2016?

There was a server problem yesterday which was fixed very quickly.
That problem isn't a problem any more. :)

Any update on the technology part mentioned here:

Do most of them already work in both v2015 and v2016? Or there is still some of them thats gonna be deployed during v2016 beta cycle?

I really liked the new interface it is much prettier than the previous interface 2015 so we need to learn how to work in it and also have another doubt avast password will be free?
Yes, Passwords feature will be free and multi-platform (Windows, iOS, Android, later Mac). There will be also premium version with some extra features, but for general usage free is fine.
