NEW Avast Version 22.1 (January 2022)
« on: February 08, 2022, 02:59:51 PM »
Hi, all. Please welcome the newest version of Avast AV: 22.1 (22.1.2504)

Notable improvements in the release:
  • Wi-Fi Inspector Password Hints - Wi-Fi Inspector can now recommend more secure passwords for your home network
  • Firewall improvements in the UI - We've re-ordered the Firewall Tabs inside the interface
  • Boot Time Scan Results - You'll notice how from now on you get actual results from scans even after reboots
Some bugfixes we worked on:
  • Rootkit driver BSOD was fixed
  • User Interface password now works fine, doesn't get removed after update
  • And many more...
The first release of the year! Thank you to our team for the great effort!
How to install:
1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program
2. Or you can download and install files:
Online installers (recommended):
Offline installers:

Appreciate mentioning me in the changelog for firewall. I didn't expect that to happen yet my name was there. :) I also appreciate devs still care about user input. Still a very rare trait in the software industry, especially from very big companies.

Just checking, version number is "lower" (21.10.2504) than the 21.11 release (21.11.2500) ?

Looks like the "version" should be Avast AV: 22.1 (22.1.6921).

Avast shows enlightened self-interest and respect by taking note of the obervations of users.  Not to do so shows contempt for users.  To ignore users' views is tantamount to cutting off their own noses to spite their faces.  I wander off the Avast path from time to time.  The experience of that makes me respect Avast all the more.  The little popups are a price well worth paying.

On Avast Free Antivirus (not Avast One Essentials), No it isn't, the two products are different. 
Don't I recall you trying Avast One and going back  ?

It isn't installed by default, but can be downloaded from the UI (I'm still on version 21.11.xxxx). 

Though I guess from a clean install it would be unless you didn't opt for a custom install.

It's an option that needs to be selected in a custom install
as explained here: https://youtu.be/IxozZFC9XRk
You can also select it later by using the option in
troubleshooting to modify what you've installed.
