That useless and annoying notification on Windows 10 notification center about I am protected, which shows after each boot can be disabled only in Win 10 notification setting or can be disabled somewhere in Avast application?
BTW I have set "Limited mode" in Avast Notification settings.

Please remove this useless notification... It serves no purpose and annoys Avast users.
Thank you and good day!

This new "feature" of Webshield needs some explaination. Maybe a Avast Blog? or at least a reply here as to its function and why it is not enabled by default. Users do not know why or whether they should manually enable it or the effect it has.

I get the impression that this is an example of Avast rushing out a monthly version before they know what will be in it and without the neccessary explainations of those items that are in it. This does not inspire confidence in configuration control or quality.

I believe the settings Dinobot2 said is a quite old one, from the era that Web Shield start scanning all HTTP(s) applications than only major browsers...

Correction, it's not the one I imagined.

I like the sound of deep packet inspection for uncommon or suspicious applications.  I guess that this blocks considerable vulnerabilities. Am I correct?

Your guess is as good as ours until someone from Avast lets us know.

I updated my Avast to 24.5. I now see that this new Web Shield setting has been checked and turned on (not bone by me manually). However, I am still curious why it showed up in the first place as an option on 24.4 and not checked in by default.

Would really appreciate if the below questions could still be answered by an Avast person.


  • Web Shield – Web Shield can now performs a deep packet inspection also for uncommon or suspicious applications.

Perhaps a silly question, but is this the setting I brought up in the below thread and the attached image?

https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=327571.0

If so, how did I get it before updating to the new version (I'm still on 24.4). Additionally, is the default setting to have it unchecked? Because it is currently unchecked in mine (I did not manually untick it) and for at least one other person who confirmed in the thread. Will it change after an update and restart?

I can't update because it shows incorrect password.  I typed the correct password.


EDIT:

I can't uninstall because it shows incorrect password.

When will the useless notification that Avast is protecting the system in W11 be removed??
Thank you and good day!

If there's an unknown password protecting the app, you'll need to uninstall via Uninstall Tool from Safe Mode. Check the steps at https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/password-protect-antivirus/#idt_020

In the next version, add a courtesy page when a phishing or malware site is detected, do not display the blank page in the browser.
In these cases, apply a page similar to the one displayed using the Avast Online Security extension.
Thank you and good day!
