I want to ask for certainty about when the firewall feature is by default in avast free without the need to be a beta user, because it is scheduled for the end of October all users can use it or will it be given at the end of this year ?

I hope that the new firewall feature will not be turned on without explicit action by the user.  I support distant non-tech users and may not be able to reach all of them if the firewall suddenly springs to life.

The Free Firewall needs to have the ability to let users manually add programs into it to create rules. Otherwise, it would be worse than Windows Firewall. The last time I checked the free firewall, it didn't have the option. Hopefully in the final version we'll have it.

After installing it on Windows 10 laptop Youtube started bombarding me with ads even though I have AdGuard browser extension ad blocker in Firefox. This never happened before, like it somehow made adblocker ineffective. Hm.
Hi, I can't comment on AdGuard, but (JFTR) no issues witch uBlock Origin here.

Firewall appears to need to be manually enabled. No surprises for the user.

yes, the firewall should be added automatically, especially since it's already November, which means the feature should already be there, the avast team should fix it again. The estimated time for launching the firewall should just say this December because the number of users is more than 435 million worldwide so that the distribution of the feature is complete. in that month, users will want to understand, don't say at the end of October all users have got a firewall, finally they complain because until now they haven't got this feature

I don't believe it should be enabled automatically or by default.
1.  People might be using a 3rd party firewall.
2.  Since the Windows Defender Firewall is the default firewall, it might be the users preference/choice.

I have a hardware firewall and don't think I need a software one; although since it's easiest, I don't mind letting the Windows firewall be enabled.

Hi
Just updated to the new Ultimate bundle on my laptop which included Avast Premium Security V21.9.  Now I can't access any websites and get this message (even got it trying to access the avast forum!)

This site can’t be reachedThe webpage at https://everquest.allakhazam.com/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
ERR_SSL_BAD_RECORD_MAC_ALERT

Had to disable shields to even get here to post this!

Hi,
Do you get this message only with chrome or with other browsers?
Do you have an Alienware laptop with a speed optimization application or a Killer network card?
A link to the "ERR_SSL_BAD_RECORD_MAC_ALERT" error you are experiencing:
https://appuals.com/fix-err_ssl_bad_record_mac_alert/
For me method 1 is not really a solution since it prevents your antivirus from  SSL scanning and just turns a blind eye to this type of connection  :-[

By the way I suppose that in your case rather than disabling all shields .... only disabling SSL scanning in the web shield should solve your problem?
The problem may be elsewhere, try the other methods proposed first.

The download for Free: -https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe triggers Firefox's not HTTPS connection on the redirect to the actual download as it is an http connection.  See attached image.

Not great impression for a Security Based company, I reported this on the last program update but it is still the same.

Thanks for reporting that. Could you please try it now? Should be resolved. Thanks a lot.

Its working correctly now, not triggering the Firefox's not HTTPS connection warning, going directly to the download link.
