When choosing a good antivirus software, it is crucial to think about the user experience. It is crucial to have a clear and easy interface that allows users to navigate the features quickly and with minimal impact on the performance of the system. Kaspersky provides a simple open-frame user interface with a clean design. The dashboard is clearly displayed and includes the green tick that indicates that the computer has been secured and a bolded button to perform a smart scan. From the main page you can quickly access Tools and Updates.
Both Kaspersky & Avast provide a range of privacy-focused features such as password protection, secure surfing and parental control. However, Kaspersky wins this category due to its superior VPN offering and more advanced security features, such as the Data Leak Checker and Password Manager.
Avast has an account manager for passwords as well, but it’s not as strong as Kaspersky’s. The password feature allows you to make sure that your passwords have been secure and determines if they have been compromised. Additionally, Avast has a Cleanup Premium feature to enhance system performance and eliminate junk files.
Both providers offer 24/7 customer service via live chat and email. Both websites also offer a wealth of FAQs and guides. Both offer a variety of devices protections, including anti-virus, WiFi security and SecureLine VPN. Kaspersky however, provides more security features for mobile devices than Avast. For instance, it comes with an additional app for its Security Cloud service which offers malware detection and other security features.
