DAMMIT AVAST!
I just checked the privacy settings. A new checkbox was added and is selected by default. "Allow usage data to be shared with 3rd parties for analysis of product performance and usage".
So shady to have that enabled by default. Especially since I have the other two checkboxes unchecked. The installer could infer I would not want to have this enabled.
Shame on you Avast. Every damn time my trust in your AV gets eroded further.
So sad that I can't trust my AV to respect my privacy and I have to do these manual checks after every major update.
