Hey there,

we have released a brand new beta of Avast SecureLine VPN for Windows platforms! Although we don't usually do beta releases for our VPN products, this one is pretty big, so we wanted to share it with the community first before we go live globally. We're also providing you with a free beta license for a month in case you don't have a valid subscription.

Avast SecureLine v2.0 for Windows BETA
http://betasecureline.tools.avcdn.net/tools/avast/betasecureline/avast_secureline_setup_beta.exe

How to activate the free beta subscription
1. Download and install beta client.
2. Click Menu -> My licenses
3. Click Activate
4. Enter this activation code and click Activate SecureLine.

Code: [Select]
T56VCE-VHNLM2-48L7DA
5. You've got the free subscription valid for a month.

Release Highlights
  • Slick new design that is super easy to use
  • 54 fast server locations now including servers optimized for streaming and P2P
  • See if your real IP address is hidden and what virtual IP address you’re using while connected to VPN
  • See for how long you’re connected to VPN
  • New options to start and even connect to VPN on computer startup for nonstop privacy
  • New tray icon

Note: that this is a standalone version of the VPN so you don't need Avast AV to be installed.

Right on time, I  just got Secure line installed 2 days ago, and this is a topping on the cake.

More of the Avast! Vibe on the product now.

Yes.The license expired of Avast Premier and was automatically updated for the free and I decided to install the trial Avast Internet Security.

Just installed the new standalone beta vpn on a second system for testing purposes.
  • Second system grabbed an existing single-use Securline VPN License in use on another primary system.
  • Turned out that to use and insert the monthly activation code provided for the beta, it was necessary to deactivate the new freshly installed installation and then insert the monthly license code provided.  The process to do so was not readily apparent.
  • Deactivation seemed at first to involve uninstalling the new application.  What should have been clear was this procedure would deactivate the primary vpn license and thus did not involve removing the application.
  • Both systems have AIS installed as a part of a 3-system license.
The second system did snatch the single-use vpn license once before when an earlier version of avast standalone vpn was made available.  The end result was the primary system lost access to the vpn network which I had paid for, or until the secondary system was removed from the vpn network.  In both cases, in the first install and the newest one, another avast vpn was installed on the second system.

An average user might not know what to do if they encountered this edge case anomaly.

I propose a modification of the vpn install process to allow the manual insertion of a license or activation code similar to what is already in place in paid versions of avast.  This, I feel, would help to prevent an edge case of multiple use of a single license, and allow the insertion of two or more single-use vpn licenses if required.

Other than this one issue, the standalone vpn works well and transparently.   ;D

Will and when this stand-alone version will be integrated as component in the main Avast security suite?

Yes, the plan is to have this standalone version as a component integrated in the main Avast but as a more standalone experience. This means you will be able to access it from the main AV menu but the VPN UI would work separately. Timing wise, we're looking at next two months.
