I noticed new taskbar Notificaton (blue dot) since updating to 21.6.2474 (build 21.6.6446.561) earlier today.
Notifications were 4 duplicates of wifi scans listed with same time stamp.
I was not expecting any wifi scans at all, as have none scheduled nor did I manually invoke one.
What is going on?

See screenshot attached:

Why can't I see page 1 of this thread when I'm logged in?

If I'm not logged in I can see it. I cleared the cookies out.

Does Avast's firewall protect both inbound and outbound?  Does it have the function of you to make your PC ports invisible from hackers?
Thank you and good day!

Hi,
Do you know if and when the "new" display disappears from the UI?
Usually, once the new item is consulted, the "new" display disappears.
Here, the information about "Secure Browser" (although installed for a long time) does not disappear while it has disappeared for "VPN" and "Cleanup", see my screenshot 1.


On the other hand , "new" disappears on my 2 devices where Secure Browser is not installed (screenshot 2) but not on my 2 where it is installed

I also notice that some parts of the UI are not translated, e.g. "Need more privacy?Check out our other apps" or "Need more performances?Check out our other apps" are still in English (with French UI)....Screenshot 1 & 2

edit:I can't post the 2nd screenshot, it makes this topic blocked

edit 2:finally OK for capture 2  ;)

Hi Chris, I already reported it (via Slack) on Friday, the devs are checking it.

Installed the new release today, and all is well except for the Notifications tab in Settings. It never loads. It constantly has "Loading" in the middle of it. I've tried repairing the installation and even doing a fresh installation. The issue persists.

Update: Forgot to mention that I'm running Windows 10 Pro x64 (Build 20H2), and I've attached an image of the issue.

In short, yes.

Confirmed, same here (German).

Hello OrdosAlpha, can you please copy and pack files from this folder c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\ and send them to petr.blatny@avast.com ? I'm not able to induce such issue.
Thank you very much.
Petr

Hello,
does anyone notice a slowdown in the opening phase of Chrome that takes a few seconds to open especially the first time after starting the PC?
If I'm not mistaken it was a problem related to Avast Free but I don't know if it has been solved.
Thank you and good day!
