How to provide feedback
Please for specific issues set a new topic in the Beta section (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=15.0). For general open discussion feel free to use this thread.

Or use the feedback form in the AV program or in the SafeZone browser.

Changes from V2016 RC 2:
- Fixed Passwords plugin in IE
- Account screens are now localized
- Minor bug fixes

Known issues:
- Online Security plugin isn't installed for Firefox 64-bit
- Most recent changes to the GUI are not yet translated

Changes from V2015:

NEW: Passwords - Avast can now manage your passwords and generate strong passwords for you. Just one password to remember.
 - checks your passwords security
 - stores your passwords securely
 - includes browser extensions for easier logging in and form filling
 - generates strong passwords

NEW: SafeZone browser - Replaced the SafeZone for safer shopping and banking

   - Pay Mode: runs automatically on banking sites (This isolates the session and protects it from possible keyloggers or other malicious software secretly lurking on your computer. With Pay Mode you can perform all your financial transactions in peace, without fear of your password or other personal details being stolen. Pay Mode can be also turned on manually directly via browser UI.)

   - Optionally, some extensions such as Ad Blocker and Video Downloader (potentially useful as SafeZone doesn't support add-ons for security reasons).

NEW: User interface
- More space for content, easy control

NEW: Feedback possible directly from program
- report bugs, feature requests and other suggestions easier

IMPROVED: Home network security
now detects more router vulnerabilites and shows more details
IMPROVED: Installation - it should be now faster and less obtrusive.
+ Many other minor tweaks and fixed

Avast cleaner:
http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avastclear.exe

It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).

To report BSODs, crashes or any other none trivial problems please use new SupportPackage generating tool.
- http://utils.support.tools.avast.com/tools/support/utils/avastsupport.exe

Instructions how to use it can be easily found:
- https://www.avast.com/en-us/faq.php?article=AVKB33#artTitle


We are looking forward for your feedback!

Thank you
Avast team

 - checks your passwords security
 - stores your passwords securely
 - includes browser extensions for easier logging in and form filling
 - generates strong passwords

Question on more details: where and how passwords are saved? Online? I know it is a combination of local and online sync. But I have this question because this new feature seems to be and work slow for me, like it downloads database every time. It should work much faster with local database I think. Easy Pass was much much faster, so the speed of Passwords interface is a bit disappointing.

The confusion starts - avast 2016 has been released with the same build number as this RC3 build - I hate it when they do this.

For some reason avast think it is a good idea for beta testers to retain the BETA branding, I don't like it, it just adds confusion once again.

I'm probably going to do a clean install as I post lots of images when helping others on the forums and having BETA on some images is likely to confuse.

Just like the same damn build number from RC3 to Regular Release.

When BETA test is complete, all BETA users should be converted to FINAL version and returned to normal updates channel.

Not really,

we keep beta users on the beta channel. In future we will make it easier to switch between beta and stable version.

BETA or Final, no option to transfer EasyPass lic to avast passwords yet?
