Avast Premier 2018
Our very best in cloud-based protection against zero second threats to your PC, home network and passwords. Premier reduces your security risk even further with automatic software updates and keeps your most personal photos, documents and other files safe from extortion with an extra layer of anti-ransomware protection.
This top of the range antivirus is not like the others
Because it blocks all webcam-hacking, and stops ransomware before it starts. It protects your PC, home network, and passwords against zero-second threats with smart cloud-based detection. It updates your apps automatically and shreds your data permanently when you say so. That’s why you’ve never seen protection like this before.
Keep spies and snoops off your webcam
Can hackers really hijack your webcam? Yes — until now. Webcam Shield makes anything and anyone get your permission before they can use it so nobody takes a peek unless you say so. You can even disable your camera for good — and enable it again. Go on, do your happy dance — no one’s watching.
Keep hostage-takers off your files
Hackers demand an average of $643 from ransomware victims. Ransomware Shield keeps your most important files from being encrypted and held hostage, and lets only trusted apps alter them in any way.
Fix vital security flaws in other applications
The longer hackers have to study a program, the more time they have to think of ways to attack it (and you). Automatic software updater keeps you safely ahead of the latest updates to all your other apps.
