Avast high bandwidth usage
« on: July 22, 2017, 12:56:19 AM »
I have been investigating issues with my Mac eating up gigabytes of my bandwidth when on cellular hotspot, and using the program Tripmode I have traced it down to Avast. I know that using the web shield means that all traffic regardless of the app will appear to come through Avast. HOWEVER, I turned OFF the web shield, Avast continues to generate hundreds of megabytes of data over the course of a few minutes. Why would this be, and is there a way to amend the behavior? Using Avast Mac 12.7 on OS 10.12.6
