Welcome to the forums, Jønne.   :)

Just click on the Member Map button near the top and you can see where most of us come from.

With great respect to CharleyO's suggestion I very much doubt that the member map has any connection at all to the reality of the use of avast's Home edition globally.

The member map is a a very small self selecting group of avast users who choose to advertise their whereabouts in a forum that is, again self selecting, being a place for those users who are comfortable in using the English language to express themselves.

I rather doubt that the avast team - who have much better information - would be willing to provide such competitive information in this forum.

Hi...

Judging from the number of American flags I see, I would think the United States ranks pretty high on the list. ;D

May God Bless you all! :)

Quite right, Alan.

So, the easiest source for Jønne to get some idea of where users are from is the member map.

Ardvark is also right. Many users are from the USA with Europe also having a large amount of users.

See my comments above.  This is not a surprise or an indicator.  The United States is the largest English (variant of) speaking nation on the planet.  It is no surprise that it appears as the most prominent self selecting group in this forum.  I am sure that, given the size of the US Internet community, the US user base ranks high in the avast user database.

However, assumptions are not always even across the globe.  For example the last time I looked there was a far greater adoption of Firefox as a browser in Europe than in the US.  avast's use may not be even globally - in this English based forum we cannot know the real distribution.

The user map is still part of the unrealistic self selecting group.

I think that you could look at the different language variants of avast in the Home download page would give a good idea of the spread/distribution globally as there would have to be a reasonable amount of users to have it translated, but no figures.

So here's another flag ;D
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

I know that i might be the  only Albaninan (Eastern Europe) member of this forum and for sure one of the maybe thousand people using it in this small country. At least almost all of my friends are converted by me to Avast home and too bad there is no where to buy a great product like Avast here in my country. Kaspersky and Norton are pretty well known but mostly pirated and a very few people can buy on/line with credit cards here yet. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
