VPN

This Article Applies to:

  • Business Hub

Avast now offers a Virtual Private Network (VPN) as a service in the Hub. A VPN functions as a private tunnel through the Internet which encrypts your data and secures your connection when using public Wi-Fi connections such as those in cafes or airports. VPN has servers in several locations which means you can bypass geolocation restrictions as well as access your favorite content while traveling. VPN does not have any configurable options within the Hub and can only be enabled or disabled on devices.

The VPN service is included in Premium and Ultimate Business Solutions.
