Behavior Shield Advanced Threat Protection
« on: January 11, 2019, 09:30:14 PM »
Windows 10 Pro x64bit
Avast 19.1.2360

Behavior Shield Advanced Threat Protection,  when sharing data is unchecked in the Personal Privacy area,  then that is greyed out, when the data sharing is checked, it's not greyed out,  Why does it need it seems data sharing on with 3rd parties?  and Which 3rd parties is this data shared with?    Thank you, Longtime user Patrick

MartinZ told it uses 3rd party service to find phony processes.

Yeah so maybe nothing to worry on perhaps, but was still a bit curious

Wouldn't hurt if they explained what 3rd party services and in what way. Till now CommunityIQ was required for advanced protection so I naturally only used that and had everything else off. Which disabled this new feature and I didn't even know about it.

Same. I don't remember it even being mentioned in any changelog for new versions... And there is no mention that this feature being greyed out because that setting under Privacy is disabled, but needs to be enabled.

It would have to be quite new, I think. In the last version with the old settings, there was nothing like this in Behavior Shield settings.

Referred to MartinZ. Let's see if that gets us a reply.

I can't see the point of having an in-line context menu Help function if this isn't described. 

OH, OH, seems that they have already got rid of the old very useful context sensitive help (the ? icon within sections), which is even worse.

I even tried the old F1 key for help but this is just generic, the path that Avast seem to be going down is bad, things being dumbed down, removal of some functionality and configuration being less flexible.

I certainly hope this is temporary, it's not a direction I would support!

I wasn't very serious, but it's good if users tell their opinions out loud.

Prays It's Temporary,  not a direction i would support either myself,  Nearly Switched the Systems early this morning over to Windows 10 built in Defender, but decided well guess just telemetry with the Allow 3rd party data sharing on to have that advanced protection, so far leaving it installed, just hopefully i don't change my mind again lol
