COOLEST MALWARE OR YOUR FAULT?
People are asking this:  "I have a PAID FOR VERSION DOES IT HAVE MALWARE ENABLED BY DEFAULT?" 
They bring up the settings - most people have not bothered to turn them off or on older versions the information gathering is by default ON.
Please turn them off.  Seriously is that the solution?   8) 

The morality of some users is disturbing!  :o  Rather some people care only that  "THEIR COPY" is not  enabled for spyware! 
They care not that it is already anti-spyware acting as the worst spyware in all history BAR NONE on most devices!
The depths of hells depravity here!  You know that the defaults were MOSTLY ENABLE ALL INFORMATION GATHERING untill recently and that applies to paid and unpaid versions.
DOES THAT ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS PEOPLE?  YES YOU CAN SEE THE SETTINGS.

No imogi available for this astonishing criminality.  Avast and AVG.
Avast has a list of features - what they have done is make the FEATURES void!  SEE THE LIST BELOW!

Because for anyone somewhat versed in how ICT works and how 'big data' works, it's clear it's just bullshittery. With complaints to multiple data agencies probably already having been filed in the EU, we'll see what EU law thinks about the excuses Avast cooks up. For me, I'm annoyed enough to take measures in that regard too. If Avast had done more then the lacklustre 'measures' they announced before (which nowhere near are enought to satisfy legal demands), I might have had forgiven them. This 'fuck you' response by Avast? Not so willing now.
