Avast Sandbox sugestions
« on: September 28, 2020, 11:57:55 PM »
Hi Petr, long time no see :)

( For the people who don't know : Petr aka PK is the Deveoper of the Avast Sandbox )


I have some sugestions regarding the Sandbox :

- In a Windows Administrator account, offer to run the Sandbox as a limited user by default.

- In the " Ask me about decision " procedure from CyberCapture Technology, offer to run an unknown executable in the Sandbox ( as a limited user ) as well.


I am curious what you think !

Greetz, Erik aka Red.

Hi Erik, the option is already available in Geek Area settings.

Yes I know the setting in Geek Area, but that is a permanent setting.
What I would like is in an Administrator account an option in the Context menu to run it as a limited user as well.

Yes I know.
And yes I am on Avast Slack as you know.

But sometimes you should just share your thoughts openly ;)
