Could you bring back Avast Sandbox feature to Avast Free Antivirus, please? Back to 2012, this feature did help users in my company to avoid being attacked by unrecognized exe files. After that, it has been removed and causing a lot of troubles for my company.

The auto-sandbox is still included in Avast Free, the full (manual) sandbox is only available in the paid versions.

I want the avast free firewall to be able to detect any internet port or protocol that is dangerous because there are many protocols that hackers can use

You could add a quick (very fast) scan of USB drives as they are inserted.
At the moment the user can choose to have the popup appear to execute the request.
Therefore, the option of automatic scanning on user choice could possibly be implemented.
Thank you and good day!

Very quick depends on the amount of data on that drive.

Avast already scans any activity on the USB that you plug in, personally scanning dormant files is link on-demand scans in general of limited benefit.

As Bob said depends on the data on the USB,  I have a 2TB external HDD (that connects by USB), I certainly wouldn't want that scanned before I do my backups.
