Delete scan history
« on: April 25, 2021, 12:08:51 PM »
How can I delete scan history of Avast and set limit of days to remember scan history, I knew how to do it but in newer version of Avast  I can't find the setting for it. Thanx

There have been many changes in the UI some of which, such as the hidden geek:area that I completely dislike. There is a preset value of 30 days for scan history.

Check the AvastUI > Menu > Settings > click Search - type geek:area to open up more detailed settings.  Scroll down to the Delete scan logs - see attached image - make any changes you need and click Go Back to leave the geek:area.
