Lukas,

Is there a link for the older 12.x product for those users on older MacOS releases?
All the links were updated to provide version 13.
For those who need to stay with 12.9 - https://public.avast.com/supp/old_versions/12_9/avast_security_online.dmg
Hi Lukas, your link doesn't work for me with HTTPS - it only works with HTTP.
-> http://public.avast.com/supp/old_versions/12_9/avast_security_online.dmg

Edit: And by the way, it's the same version I provided in Reply #27... ;)
Thanks for finding my typo! Fixed.

And yes, you are right. Your link goes to the old installer tha stayed at the CDN. However it's by accident - because we changed the naming scheme of installers. (I'll not fix it as there might be some users who want the old version ;) )

Thanks for the link. Have had some people asking about it who are stuck on older releases, including one of my family  ;)

When are you going to reinstate the Safari browser extension that you quietly dropped in version 13?

Which features are you missing from the extension?

The same features you offer in the Chrome and Firefox plugins!!!   If you consider this necessary for Chrome, it's surely necessary for Safari?

a teaser for Geoff42 - Safari AOS extension is back on the table. Let see when it's ready for a release. We added it into Preferences > Browsers already...

Hi,

We have moved all executables to /Applications. You can find the scan in /Applications/Avast.app/Contents/Backend/utils

Best regards,

Hi, there should appear a system dialog requesting an elevation to admin privileges. The installer needs it for proper installation of all AV parts. If you don't provide correct admin credentials or you click "cancel" then the installer will fail.
There may be also some log in /tmp directory that would provide more details about it.

Best regards,
Lukas.

Hello, please help me!
I have a MacBook Pro and have used free Avast Security a long time. Today I downloaded version some version and first uninstalled the previous version as instructed. During the last step of installation of the the latest version, the installer stopped and showed this message (Translated into english): "Installation failed. The installer encountered an error preventing installation. Contact the program maker and ask for assistance." I have tried this three times with the same result. Consequently I now have neither the older, nor the new version and is unprotected.
Please give me instructions on what to do!
