Avast - what is it?
« on: February 02, 2023, 11:06:01 PM »

On my Macbook (Ventura) today a message from system preferences came up stating:

 Background Items Added
  "Avast " added items that run in the background. You can manage this in Login Items Settings.

Can anyone please tell me what this is and what it does.  I cannot find any reference to it in the forums or on the web.

this is a background app that synchronises licensing and messaging across all our products. It self removes some time after all our products are uninstalled.
Kind regards,
