What is Avast Web Shield?

Web shield is a component of the avast antivirus program which scans data that is transferred when you browse online. This shields you from malware and blocks it from running on your computer. Web shield blocks websites and stops hackers from using your computer as a server for hacking into other computers. It can block unwanted software and report it to the community.

The avast web shield uses advanced technology to block and detect the most recent threats. It operates in real-time and scans files and programs at the time they're opened or downloaded. It can also detect ransomware that locks certain files on your device and requires payment to unlock them. It also detects trojans, that disguise themselves as legitimate software and then insert malware into your system.

Avast offers multi-platform protection against spyware, malware, and viruses. It also shields you from scam attacks, ransomware and trojans. It is available on Microsoft Windows, macOS and iOS. The company offers the free version for each platform and an upgrade version with more features.

If Avast detects a threat, it immediately alerts you and alerts its users to the threat. If a malicious application is downloaded and installed on your device, this can cause damage to your operating system, corrupt your files, or even steal personal information. If you'd like to access an application or website that Avast has blocked, you can add it to your exclusions list. You can also disable Web Shield and File Shield to allow safe websites and applications to run on your device.
