Avast Free and sandbox.
« on: November 18, 2020, 10:46:00 AM »
Hi, a doubt that  want to remove, but is there a sandbox in Avast Free?

Are unknown files when executed are scanned first in sandbox (cannot harm PC) and if malicious are deleted on PC?


Thanks.  ;)
Thank you and good day!

Yes.

Kind of came across this subject while browsing . But I though avast free does not have the sandbox feature and only paid customers do? At least according to the site.

Hi, Avast Free has an auto-sandbox, while the paid version has a full featured SB.
