There's definitely a mistake an error in the store...  :o ;D
The free version protects against dangerous, fraudulent and phishing sites :

And the mistake is  ?

The Web Shield - have you not seen that even the Avast Free version has incorporated some of the Real Site functionality in the Web Shield.

The screenshot is shown on the official Avast website.
Which indicates Avast Free is not protected.

Well the full Avast Real Site app is a paid product

Plus I can only repeat what has been said in the link I gave for the NEW Avast version 23.11 « on: 15 November 2023, 13:39:31 »
So it may be that the main site hasn't been updated to reflect this recent change.

As I have said Avast Free version has incorporated some of the Real Site functionality in the Web Shield.  That has bee confirmed in the link that I gave.
Hi all, I can confirm that the Fake E-store Protection is part of the "regular" Web Shield protection. There isn't any specific setting associated with this feature. Sorry for the confusion!

So isn't a stand alone product as such and or incorporated in paid Avast products.
