Avast One firewall functionality
« on: November 28, 2022, 09:40:31 PM »

I recently moved from a trial installation of Premium Security to Avast One Family subscription. I found the "ask me mode" functionality in Premium Security really useful and while it's still prompting on one installation on Avast One, I can't see the option to enable this anywhere in Avast One - is this correct or am I missing something?

Thanks for that link. Reading between the lines it looks as though Avast has crippled simplified the firewall in Avast One so can't be controlled in the same way as the firewall in Avast Premium. The fact it's still working on one device must be some anomaly from when it was "upgraded" from Premium to One

It isn't so much crippled, but simplified it, many people don't venture into the settings/customisations and just let it get on with it.

However for me that is the opposite of why I chose Avast over 18 years ago I wanted the ability to choose what I wanted and how it ran.  So I have never moved to the Avast One option.
