When surfing the Web, it is important to try to keep your activity and your personal data as safe and private as possible. However, your IP is always ready give you away, allowing anyone interested to find out what you’re doing and from where. Avast SecureLine VPN offers you tens of different servers in all continents through which you can connect to the Internet and encrypt your data, so that nobody really knows where you are, and more importantly, who you are.

This VPN solution works like a charm. It is easy to install and easy to use, and can be set to turn itself on automatically as soon as you open your browser and connect to the Internet. You can choose any of the servers listed in the “Change your Location” tab, where you will find locations from all around the world organized by continent. Alternatively, the program can offer you a recommended server – usually one close to your location – in order to guarantee that you get the fastest connection and service possible. In this servers tab, you’ll also find two categories – one for users of P2P protocols and another one for those interested in streaming media at the best of speeds.

You can set Avast SecureLine VPN to launch at startup, so that it’s always ready to connect to your favorite country/server as soon as you start browsing the Web. You can also receive notifications on your desktop every time your VPN service turns on or off, so you’re always informed about your level of privacy at any given time.

As it happens with most, if not all, VPN services, putting a filter between you and the Web and encrypting all data coming out of your computer may cause a certain amount of delay on your Internet activity. Annoying as it may be at times, it is always better than having your privacy compromised, though. Some users will find the program’s annual fees a bit on the pricey side when compared to other similar tools. The good news is that you can try it for free during a 7-day trial period, and see for yourself if the service they provide is up to the program’s tag price.
