Why am I seeing this?
« on: January 19, 2020, 04:03:56 PM »

Both the Passwords and SecureLine are installed and running on my system.
Why is this showing up? Why doesn't Avast check on the products installed?

I guess there is a reason they are called Dumb ads, they don't bother checking what you have installed (or so it would seem).

Hello,

when the application is installed the recommendation is still there, but you can open the app via the button, see screenshot. This behaviour will be changed in one of the next releases.

Thank you.

Thanks, it's time for Avast to show off it's artificial intelligence and human genius. :)
