Again - if you opted out of this any time before, we are respecting your very decision even after splitting the consent in settings in this latest version.

I don't like having to repeat myself so please read this very carefully; before installing this version of Avast Free there were two checkboxes. Both unchecked because I have opted out. Then, after updating to this new Avast Free, there are three checkboxes. The new third checkbox was checked by default. And no screen appeared asking me what data, if any, I would like to share. So stop lying.
Your are not lying !!
I have seen the same !!
Yes,unless it's so futile that practically no one understands the subtlety.
Quote from: benko
The checkbox of sharing the data with 3rd party in older version covered both:

    sharing to the external analytical tool (such as Google Analytics) that we use solely for our own purposes - observing how users navigate through the app, how often do they open UI, bug reports, etc.
    sharing anonymised and aggregated data with other companies for business and trend analysis (so sharing data with Jumpshot).
If we had made the choice in the past (when it covered both) not to allow data sharing with a third party (globally), this should continue to be the case for both regardless of the use made of it  (regardless of EULA).
Otherwise, there is no point in proposing these choices in privacy UI and especially do not write here that before it covered both.

Could you comment on why AVG IS beta still tries to connect to analytics.ff.avast.com?
I have turned off all data sharing under Privacy options, yet it still tries to connect to this particular domain??

@barry100,
I have not had any problems with mail shield since update (avast free 19.7).
Which version of Avast are you using?
Which operating system? (e.g. Win10 1903)
Which mail client are you using?

I installed avast free on the system. Now often popping up the message that the license has expired, click to activate the license again. But after many clicks, I found that it is not a free version. If you do not accept the 60-day trial, the license is still invalid.

Just updated, and like others have reported, the newly added checkbox was auto-checked. I've always had data sharing unchecked, especially 3rd party. I even double checked they were unchecked prior to the upgrade. That is some shady shit.
