How to disable popup ads?
« on: January 31, 2022, 11:02:36 AM »
Hi.

I have a paid premium security subscription, but everyday when I'm the middle of something, Avast shows a popup offering me to "get 3 more products...".

It is very annoying. I've looked in the settings but can't find how to disabled it.

Please help, and thanks in advance.

You can disable the ads in the paid versions: Avast GUI -> Settings -> Personal Privacy

It's already configured that way, I unchecked those when I installed.

Ok, but I already closed the one that appeared today, it seems that it displays once per day, tomorrow as soon as it appears again I'll post, thanks.

Dev-Info: New year ads should be completely turned off today and we're checking why it was displayed several times.
