Possible Phishing App. Unclear if it works, Tech support BAD!
I downloaded the App after a friend said it protects you when you are on a publick Wifi and after calling Tech Support to inquire about a pop up that I would get asking for access to my Keychain every time I connected; I was told by the rep that they did not support Macs. After insisting that the Apple Store and Avast’s website say otherwise she asked me to generate a ticket online. I followed the steps and asked questions but could not get an immediate answer. I was asked to use the app to create a “support package” which was generated as a zip file from the app I decided to call Apple. I could not get a refund and still don’t know if it was working but WORSE than that I don’t know if the App was safe or if it got access to any of the info in my Keychain.
I don’t understand why any app would need access to the Keychain on my Mac. Anyone?
Developer Response ,
VPN establishes an encrypted connection between your client and Avast gateway and routes all your internet traffic through this connection. The encryption is based on a pre-shared key stored by the application to the login keychain. When the Apple's Network extension framework is asked to setup the network configuration, it needs an access to be granted to this keychain item. Therefore the framework displays an alert 'neagent wants to access key "com.avast.osx.secureline" in your keychain'. You can grant the access one-time or permanently.
Keychains work on the macOS the way that any application has access only to items it has created before. If it wants access to any other item, it needs to ask for its access individually. You don’t need to be afraid of a misusage.
Regarding the technical support, it is a long term issue we are aware of and it will need to be addressed by the company.
Put on monthly subscription without my knowledge
I downloaded Avast one day because I need to use a VPN; Avast didn’t work at all, but I wasn’t annoyed. I merely deleted the app and forgot about it. Fast forward a couple of months, and apparently I’ve been charged by a monthly subscription for Avast, while not having the app on any device. I know subscriptions don’t require you to have the app (although that’s quite counterintuitive), but I was never made aware of this while using the app (for a few minutes at the maximum). I have since canceled my subscription, and I wouldn’t reccommend this app to anyone.
I wouldn’t recommend Avast. Yes it is easy to set up and use but god forbid you need any customer support. I wanted to upgrade my plan and add a mobile license but there getting my account info was a pain. I tried calling customer support (twice) and attempted to navigate their site for an hour and had zero resolution. They hang a sign that say customer support but honestly it’s just for show. I canceled my subscription and wouldn’t recommend them to anyone because when problems occur there’s no help to be held.
