You aren't testing Mac's? I've been watching and have yet to see the Beta open to Apple OS users.
Thx! I've been really looking forward to this!

Hi Chemi,
Unfortunately, you cannot join the beta anymore, because beta testing was closed. Ordering Omni from Mac is also not available, but if you order Avast Omni from Windows platform, you can log in to Omni Companion app on Mac (available at www.avast.com/omni-app).
Thanks

Hello HeffeD,
Thank you. It could help us a lot. Best regards, Zbynek

Hi Zbynek6,

I haven't experienced the update crash again, but I have had a crash both times I've run Tor browser in the sandbox. As soon as closing the browser window, the OS crashes. I've submitted a report using the support tool. The file ID is 15UAK.

The submission is after the second crash, because I wanted to make sure I could reproduce the issue.

Thanks!

Can you check if the RT-68U is compatible?

Hi blackdog47,
Just to be sure, do you mean Asus RT-AC68U router?

Yes, please check if Avast Omni is compatible with ASUS RT-AC68U. Do you have an updated list of compatible devices?

Hi blackdog47, the easiest way how to check the compatibility is to install Avast Omni app and scan your network. http://avast.com/omni-app Thanks, Zbynek

Hi Zbyněk6, the Asus RT-AC68U is not supported based from the Omni app, when will you have updates regarding the unsupported routers?

How much is the Avast Omni?  When do you charge me when I pre-order?

Hi blackdog47, We are working on increasing compatibility routers every day. Please stay tuned. We are offering the product as an upgrade to our current customers and the current price is always available in the app, before ordering (depends on which product you already have). The hub will be delivered approx. 7 days after placing the order. Thanks, Zbynek

@Zbynek6,
Will there be a difference in the renewal price since at that time you aren't purchasing another hub?
I've had some inquiries but didn't have an answer.
Thanks. :)

Hi @bob3160, Every customer will be notified by email 2-3 weeks prior to the automatic renewal of Omni license. Now we sell Omni at a special price. Omni license is a subscription and contains HW part - the hub. Thanks

Thanks for the reply but that really doesn't give me any information as to what to tell those with a question.
The original price was announced at $149.99 what is the Special price? Thanks

So I know that Beta testing is "officially" closed, but I also heard that some beta testers will continue being used to gather information.

well here is an opportunity for Avast Omni to increase it's knowledge base.

I am seriously interested in using this solution for for all my connected devices.

my network router:
netgear model # DGND3700
this is a dual band ADSL router hooked up to Centurylink DSL

my process so far:
installed Omni software and ran compatibility test.
states router is not compatible.
I checked my router config IPV6 is not enabled (however not sure about IPV6 DHCP)
after checking router settings I re-ran compatibility test.
again states "not compatible"

However this may mean nothing but doing a network scan it shows all devices correctly connected to my wireless network and they are "secured" so some wireless traffic is being recognized by Omni.

Also at this point I have no way of ordering the Omni Hub.
I would be willing to purchase a subscription and the device to see if we can get this working on my network.

Thank you
Mike
