How to Configure Avast Web Shield

Avast Web Shield continuously tests information that is moving through the internet and stops any potential threats in real-time. This protects against ransomware, which locks your data and demands a payment to unlock them as well as Trojans disguised as legitimate software, but infuse malware onto your device. Web shield detects phishing websites which attempt to steal your personal data.

Avira provides multiple settings to change the way avast web shield performs. For example, you can change the degree of sensitivity, which controls how avast Web Shield examines data when you connect to the internet. You can also activate and disable HTTPS scanning as well as script scanning, and block botnets. You can also make a list of exclusions to stop certain programs from being detected by the web shield.

If avast discovers malware or an unwanted program on your computer, it will try to repair the file first. If the file is unable to be repaired it will be moved to Quarantine. You will also receive a notification. You can also select the default action that avast will choose to take if a virus is detected.

You can add a site or application that you are confident is secure to the exceptions list so it won’t be blocked in the future. This can be done by clicking on the Real-Time Shields Tab, and then selecting either the Web Shield (or File Shield) item from the list. The method for adding an app or website to the exceptions list is different for the Avast Security and Avast One apps.
