Avast Internet Security 2016

Our best-seller for a reason. Avast Internet Security 2016 offers advanced protection for everything you do online. It’s especially useful against copycat banking sites or phishing emails and a new, improved https scanner protects you from more infected sites than ever before. As expected, it features the best core protection available, including firewall, anti-spam, safe banking and more, with added improvements in home network scanning so you can keep everything on your network safe.


New! Avast Passwords

Change bad habits like storing passwords on your browser, or reusing the same password. Avast’s new password manager creates unique, unbreakable passwords for all your accounts - yet only asks you to remember one.


New! SafeZone Browser

Open any suspicious sites in SafeZone, or use it for your financial tasks. SafeZone is a secure, isolated space where no one can copy what you type or steal your banking details – so you can shop, bank or pay your bills in total privacy.


Improved! Home Network Security

Even better protection, for everything on your home network. Avast 2016 detects 12 more types of router vulnerabilities so you can keep your printers, network drives and routers fully secured – in just a click.



Stop hackers getting unauthorized access to your computer. Avast‘s silent firewall quietly filters the data that reaches your computer, eliminating known threats – and isolating those that seem suspicious.


SecureDNS Protection

DNS hijacking is real. It’s far too easy to accidentally type all your login details into a replica of your banking site. SecureDNS encrypts the connection between your PC and our DNS server, so you don’t fall for any fakes.

Innovation is Our Business

With more than 25 years of innovation, we’re the most-trusted security in the world, protecting more PCs, Macs, and Androids than anyone else.

"Slowed browsing to a crawl - really disappointing update."

Avast Internet Security 2014 made browsing painfully, brutally slow and anything else I had running at the same time slowed down as well. The problem seemed to be mostly with internet based apps - desktop apps didn't seem as badly affected. Some people said the problem was mostly with streaming video, but it was ll the time with me. And not like people stream a lot of video, am I right? Really disappointing. I've uninstalled it and won't be re-installing unless they fix this problem, if at all. Honestly very disappointing.

I am a longtime user of Avast security software. I used the free version for years and switched to the Avast security suite about three years ago when I could spare the cash. Customer loyalty, you know? I used their product for free so I figured I owed them. I have to say, though, this latest version is a huge gaff on someone's part and made me lose some faith in the company. Don't think I'll be coming back.
