Why must I turn Ransomware Shield on manually?
« on: April 01, 2019, 10:51:28 PM »
I'm concerned that Ransomware Shield does not activate automatically in my Avast Premier. Instead, I have to manually open the Avast interface and go to Core Shields, in which case a popup window appears saying, "Ransomware Shield is now off. Would you like to turn it on?" Unless I start clicking on features in the program's interface (which is something I rarely do) I wouldn't even be aware that Ransomware Shield was turned off. Ransomware Shield should definitely be a feature that activates AUTOMATICALLY and is ALWAYS ON by default. I hope Avast addresses this issue ASAP.
