Pricing

Users get a free 7-day trial. However, after the trial ends, Avast SecureLine VPN can seem a bit pricey, as for a single PC or a Mac it costs $59.99 per year, while for a single Android, or iOS device it starts at $19.99 per year. Users can also get a subscription which covers up to 5 devices for $79.99 per year.

Download and installation

Avast SecureLine VPN setup is pretty simple and quick, for us it took about three to four minutes to download and setup on a PC, while on the Android device it too only a minute.

Test Results

Performance

We decided to try Avast SecureLine VPN using a Samsung device and Windows 10 PC. The VPN service works pretty well, however, the connection time is relatively slow, in comparison to other products. Avast SecureLine VPN took an average of 12 seconds to connect. When it comes to system-performance impact, the VPN service had a respectable drop of approximately 30%.

Additional features

Avast SecureLine VPN has a lower number of connection points than full-featured VPN services. It has servers in only 19 countries. Even though it is fewer than its’ competitors, this number should be enough for most users.

In order to protect users’ privacy, Avast SecureLine VPN applies AES-256 protocol, which encrypts data transmissions.

It is worth to mention that the data usage is unlimited, as well as bandwidth usage. So you do not have to worry about that, at least.

Avast SecureLine VPN is one of the best built-in programs, and offers reliable features, however, it cannot truly compete with full-featured VPN brands.

User interface

Avast SecureLine VPN has a clean and simple user interface. It is very similar when it comes to the mobile or desktop version. We did not like that the desktop version is very small and the interface cannot be re-sized.

Support

Avast offers customer support for its VPN users, same as with any other Avast product. Users can contact Avast technicians via phone or email. The website also offers beneficial and useful information for every Avast product, including how-to articles, activation, sales and billing help, request for refund and other useful links.

The premium tech support is available 24/7.

Pros Cons Verdict
Good performance Could seem a bit expensive per device Good performance and steady connections, however, has a limited feature set and could seem a bit expensive for a single device.
A quick and easy set up Limited additional features  
  Separate mobile plans  

The final verdict

Avast SecureLine VPN offers users a relatively good overall performance and steady connections. The service performs quickly and is decent. It is also very easy and quick to set up. However, it might seem a bit expensive per single device and has limited features.

All in all, Avast SecureLine VPN is simple and pretty decent VPN service, however, it is not good as a full-featured VPN.

Avast SecureLine VPN is rated as one of the best VPN services in 2018.
