Avast is known for their antivirus program however they also offer an excellent VPN service. It’s a fast and secure option, however it’s quite expensive. Avast offers a 30-day trial for new users.

As opposed to other providers who offer several protocols, Avast VPN only offers one protocol: OpenVPN over UDP with AES-256 encryption. This is a remarkably powerful encryption method, and is utilized by banks. Avast also uses different encryption technologies including ChaCha20 or RSA-2048.

The Avast VPN client on desktops and Android devices will automatically select the best protocol for your connection. It attempts to connect to OpenVPN first, and then switches to Mimic in the event that it fails. From my experience, this isn’t the most efficient way of selecting a particular protocol. It would be more beneficial for the user to have the option of selecting the protocol you prefer, and then let you know how successful it was.

Avast VPN has a lot of servers spread across hundreds of locations across 34+ countries. I’m not sure if the list of servers is updated frequently enough, since the VPN did not have any servers in China when I tried it. There are a few identifying pieces of information that Avast tracks about your use that include your full name and zip code.

Avast’s headquarters are located in the Czech Republic. This country is GDPR compliant and not a member of any Eyes Alliance surveillance group. They do keep some identifying connection logs, and their no-logs policy does not explicitly prohibit this. They accept payments via PayPal and credit cards, however they do collect billing information. They also allow a couple of cookies to monitor your activities on the internet.
