Avast Premium + what else?
« on: June 13, 2024, 06:17:18 PM »
Open question: What would be a thorough and good setup in addition to Avast Premium Security?

A password manager of course is a no brainer - but are there other tools that are recommended and complimentary to Avast Premium? Something like Guard.io, Aura, Malwarebytes, etc.? What would be a combination that makes sense and offers highest possible security?

Good question.
Ive already got password manager included with avast premium but i think they got rid of it a while back for new downloads.
I found their vpn slowed my speeds down a lot when i tested it so went for Nord which has no change to speeds.
with Nord you get a free password manager but only linked to one device so have to log out of pc for it to work on phone. i upgraded that to premium and that comes with a dark web monitor and checks emails and passwords for dark web activity and also open on more than one device.
only other thing i have is malwarebytes free which does not conflict with avast.
be interested to hear what others use.
