Antivirus definitions update intervals.
« on: November 20, 2020, 03:06:29 PM »
In the free version of the app, when do automatic virus definitions updates already occur?
Today November 20 is the update to November 19.

Can you implement time intervals for checking / updating definitions?
Thank you and good day!

This is from the Avast website,

If your system is on-line, Avast receives a streaming update approximately every 6 minutes
and provides 2 major protection updates per day.
Remember, there are always exceptions.

Yet mine is always connected and does not update immediately ...  :-\
Sometimes it lags 1 day with the definitions, I have to update it manually.
It would be useful if they put an update time interval that the user can choose.   ;) ;) :D
If I remember correctly in previous versions this was the case.
