So Avast Omni is now available at a Bargain Price.
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=93544.msg1535926#msg1535926

I don't think that is such a bargain (even if I was in a position to get it).   I guess I'm not in avasts demographic as a potential customer.

The Avast web site (Omni page), certainly doesn't make it clear exactly what it does and how it does it and it is likely to be short lived bargain come renewal time.   Even at the bargain price you really would have to have lots of devices and users to protect to make it worth while.

Whilst spying on your kids might be helpful for some (given the current climate, possibly not).
There's only Alice and I at home but there are lots of toys that are no being watched to make sure they behave. :)

Hello,

I am interested in Avast Omni but finding a lack of info on how it actually works.  Some questions please:

1) I am in the UK... is it available here or when is it expected?
2) How does the Omni hardware work?  Do my devices connect to the Avast router then onto my own router and then the internet?  Or do my devices connect to my router then the omni then the internet?
3) I don't use wifi.  So will my ethernet devices be able to connect to the Avast router?
4) What sort of hardware ports does the Avast router have?  What are the speed of any ethernet ports?
5) Can I run a VPN through the Avast router or does the Avast router work like an encrypted VPN connection?

I look forward to the information.

Our subscription has renewed recently.  If we purchase Omni, how does that affect what we already have?

I am very interested in the Omni product. I have had problems getting info and I hope you can help. I am in the USA. I have had Avast free for years. I got an upgrade offer on the Avast screen showing Omni for $49.99. I downloaded the router compatibility test, installed the software and after confirming that my router worked, attempted to order the Omni device. Suddenly the order price was $99.99? I attempted to call customer support at 2 different numbers and alas, no one knew anything about Omni. They submitted a request to the Omni support dept and I received an email a week later which was not at all about my questions.

Is the Omni out of beta testing?, is the 49.99 offer valid, and what is the ongoing Omni annual subscription rate $99, or $119 for the Ultimate multi user, or something different? Also I am surprised that there is so little info on the web, no reviews, discussions etc.

I am ready to order if I can clarify these details, and I welcome all responses.

Hi newtone, sorry for the inconvenience caused. Omni is out of beta testing, the actual price always depends on running campaign, etc. I don't wanna make any statement about the annual subscription rate, because we do not know exactly how much it will be. Thanks

Hi everyone, I got the Omni for the advertised price of $49.99. It has been received, installed and set up. The setup was easy and complete. I still need to download the Omni app to my kindle devices but it is not listed in the amazon app store, and doesn't show up as needed in the Omni desktop program. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Bob

There is currently not an app for kindle, so it will not be protected when out of home. It will be protected however, when connected to the Omni hub at home.

Loving the sound of Omni!  :D :D :D Coming to the UK anytime soon? (Brexit permitting!)

Cheers,
Glenn.

So i got my Omni yesterday and plugged it in today, Set up was pretty simple however I cannot access the internet on my devices and my TV and phone seem to be working a lot slower. Anyone have this issue. I have it disconnected now but its quite frustrating. Also I cannot access my cable tv account on my Ipad because the cable provider states that it does not support VPNs
