Avast updates privacy policy at GDPR launch | Avast

As the GDPR took effect in Europe yesterday and privacy continues to be an important issue throughout the world, we took this opportunity to update our own privacy policy because we want our users to clearly understand what data we collect and what we do with it.  

We also added new product settings to cover when data is used for third-party ads, analytics, and cross-product marketing and development to ensure we are fully compliant with the new laws.


In regards to the GDPR, our privacy policy is the same whether you are using our products in Europe or anywhere else in the world. It is globally consistent.


No action is required on your part, but if you have any questions you can contact us through the new Privacy Preference Portal. We welcome all communication and feedback, and we consider every concern sent to us.

Read our new Avast Privacy Policy so you can feel secure that Avast protects your privacy and defends your digital life.
