Hi everyone,

new beta version 17.6.2307 is released.

What's new:
  • New Sensitive Data Shield component
    • it scans for documents on your PC that contain sensitive information (agreements, work documents, flight tickets etc) and offers an extra protection of those
    • the documents are then protected against access by untrusted apps
  • New SafeZone browser version
  • Fixed crash during product activation by license

Known issues:
  • Settings for Sensitive Data Shield not ready yet
  • Sensitive Data Shield does not protect already protected files when those are modified
  • Behavior Shield detection dialog not updated to new design

Enjoy this beta!
We are looking forward to your feedback.

AVAST Team.

Is Threat Popping in your face, center of the screen only enhancement free users see?  and Safezone browser update?
New Threat design isn't that great in my opinion, kinda gets in the way of things, steals focus as well.   What was wrong with old way?   I didn't see anything wrong with old way, so why change it?

Hi guys  :)

- Sensitive Data Shield is only available for Premier users.

- SafeZone browser is, as Asyn mentioned, indeed the same as the previous version.

And :

- The " Wrong Firewall popup dialog "  bug is still not fixed.
- And " Show last pupup message " doesn't work for those either.

Very annoying  :(

Greetz, Red.

Yes, presumably because they have changed the in your face alert dialogue window and not the toaster popup, this option in the tray icon menu is also stuffed.

I've been using Avast since version 4x, seen a lot of changes over the years, some positive and some not so positive, the current alerts for threats detected in these beta version is probably one of the worst changes seen in a long long time.     What was the Avast Developers thinking even trying this beta with them in the first place, they should've known users wouldn't like them.

Plus got my Mother using the free version and she can't see that well, so i'm hoping before this is released to final a postivie change is made, little nervous on switching to Defender for protection, but it's either face in your face popups, or switch to product eventually that doesn't have the popups.   

Or at least Developer explaining why changed to the in your face ones, and maybe could understand

Instead of introducing new unfinished features, first the old unresolved problems should have been cleared up.
Now what we have are new problems added to those that haven't been fixed from previous releases.   :o
