Home Network Security

You can use this tool at: Menu ▸ Scan ▸ Scan for network threats

Use the Home Network Security feature to scan your home network for vulnerabilities. It checks wireless network status, devices connected to the network, and router settings. Routers are commonly weak points in home networks and need special attention.

To begin the scan, click the Scan network. During the scan you can close the Avast user interface or navigate to other areas of Avast settings. You can also pause the scan by clicking the Stop button in the Home Network Security screen.

Results appear when the scan is done. If any issues are found, follow on the screen instructions to resolve them.
