VPN Killswitch?
« on: November 17, 2021, 07:24:09 AM »
Does Avast One's VPN have a Killswitch to terminate all internet if the VPN drops on its own?

Dev-Info: Indeed KS is not yet in A1 but we are currently working on it.

TQ. Forgot to ask whether Avast One has a 'Do Not Disturb' feature found in Avast Free that prevents pop-ups and Avast ads when a program is in full screen? Even if it is incorporated into A1 and not shown as a setting.

So does Avast One have pop-ups when a program is in full screen like a video player or game?

Hi,

There is no Do Not Disturb Mode in Avast One.

I asked earlier about VPN Killswitch. After program update, Avast One now has one but under Premium. Most VPN software provide Killswitch as a basic necessity for VPN. Even for basic free VPN, a Killswitch is a necessity. It should not be under Premium. Now I won't use the VPN because of this. There are other free VPN software with Killswitch.

Well, you can't get everything for free. ;)
