Avast VPN Scandal & Usecure Browsing /Hacked System
« on: January 29, 2023, 08:31:02 AM »
I Have Privacy Concerns When it comes to AVAST, Almost as if you guys  can't be trusted or you guys could be bought...


I'll Elaborate.... I've been having problems with Avast a secure system, While not having any cyber security trusting in Avast..
I contacted avast about all of my concerns and after studying the signs of being hacked,  described the issue I was having with avast..

Avast Assured me Everything was alright, And walked me through steps they said would help my browser....
one of the things they stated would be assure protection is the lock on the URL search bar.. 

 The problems and the signs continued... I then got a VPN to try it out on their browser and even Cyber Security... That's when the VPN doesn't want to work and upon searching the URL The Lock looks as if it's unlocked (Because it's not secured)

That lets me know Avast can be compromised by hackers and/or if someone offered their system something (Money) to track and hack someone (lets say an activist targeted by the FBI per say... If The FBI Couldn't hack AVASt unless AVAST allowed it)  The point is, there is no way Their system is this incompetent and they are unware of the functionality of their system unless... they lied about their accuracy of protection and/or has something to do with the browser being compromised.

Avast is obligate to follow the law. No different than any other legitimate companies.

That wasn't what bob3160 said, he is saying "other legitimate companies" just like Avast would be obliged to follow the law if a legal request is made.
