Avast SecureLine VPN is a subscription based virtual private network (VPN) service developed by Avast. It is available for Android, Microsoft Windows, macOS and iOS operating systems.[1]

The VPN can be set to automatically turn on when the user connects to a public Wi-Fi.[2]

Functionality[edit]

Similar to other VPNs, SecureLine works by making the user appear in a different place via changing the users IP address, bypassing internet censorship for the country the user is in or Wi-Fi the user is using. The VPN can be set to automatically turn on when the user connects to a public Wi-Fi.[3]

Security features of Avast SecureLine VPN include: 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard, single shared IP, DNS leak protection, kill switch, and Smart Connection Rules.[4]

Server locations[edit]

Avast has egress servers in more than 60 cities world-wide.[5] Servers in eight cities support P2P connections for protocols like BitTorrent and further servers are dedicated to users of streaming services.[6]
