As the product name suggests, Avast SecureLine VPN is a VPN software which works independently of the Avast antivirus 2020. So there is no need to actually use Avast antivirus, you can either use both or one of them. In the past, it used to be a pre-installed component of the Avast antivirus.

SecureLine is not dependent on your Avast antivirus solution, so you can use it together with the free version, the same as with the premium one.

Besides the Windows version, there are also versions of SecureLine VPN for Android devices, iPhone/iPad iOS, and Mac OS X. But we recommend getting the multi-platform version which you can use on up to 5 different devices (no matter what OS they are).

Basically, SecureLine VPN does three things

  1. Protects you and your passwords from hackers on public WiFi networks
  2. Makes you anonymous on the Internet by masking your IP address
  3. Pretend you are connected from the different location (see the list of available locations below). This can be used for bypassing geo-restriction rules (for example viewing or BBC Live from any country)

So it’s a perfect product if you’re traveling a lot, or want to visit some content which is restricted from your home country. How does it compare with its competitors? See the comprehensive Avast SecureLine VPN Review by VPN Den.

Free 7-Day Trial

As mentioned SecureLine can be only a standalone application (see the screenshots below) which doesn’t require Avast installed on your system.

Avast SecureLine VPN Pricing/Licensing

  • 1-year subscription – $79.99
  • 2-year subscription – $149.99
  • 3-year subscription – $219.99

Price of Avast SecureLine VPN is quite high compared to other popular VPNs on the market. They typically start at $10 per month or $70 a year, but offers many more features.

Avast SecureLine VPN Pop-ups and How To Disable Them

You can sometimes see the Avast SecureLine VPN pop-up notification coming from your Avast antivirus. Usually, it’s a time-limited offer to purchase SecureLine with a special 33% discount. If you want to get rid of these pop-ups just check our ‘Ultimate Guide to Disabling Avast Pop-up Notifications‘.

The second type of SecureLine pop-ups are the ones which come only if you have the SecureLine VPN activated. Most typically the one when you are connecting to the unsecured public WiFi network. This one specifically can be disabled by going to ‘Tools’ » ‘SecureLine’. There at the bottom of the screen, you should see a pre-checked option ‘Ask me to start SecureLine whenever I connect to an unsecured Wi-Fi’. Obviously, just un-check this option.

    You wrote that “Lots of people are searching for the free Avast SecureLine VPN license file (serial key) on the Internet. Please be aware there is no way how to download the license file/key for free”, but that’s simply not true!! I used Avast VPN for more than a year, I found a license key that worked untill 2019 February’s first. Check your info sources before posting false information, yes, it’s dificult to find a working VPN key (they are blacklisted as soon they’re used by too many people), but it’s entirely possible!!

    Hi, I’m writing from my country Venezuela, my favorite antivirus is avast, but what do you recommend for free VPN?

    In my country we live with problems and economic blockades that prevent us from having free access to dollars, you can buy in non-legal exchange bureaus BUT only in cash, in order, pay the avast Vpn with credit card is impossible for me because no they are accepted and the cost to us is too high when we change the local currency to dollars…

    I need a VPN because our government has blocked access to endless web pages, videos on YouTube, online TV programs and more. Also spy our movements on the web.

    Grateful with a kind response from you.
