The antivirus Avast collects user data and sells them to companies
"IF you're not paying for a product, you are the product"* is a phrase that is well-suited to the scandal that is investing in Avast, one of the most well-known free antivirus programs in the market. On Monday, a joint investigation of PCMag and Motherboard have revealed that the application stores all the activity of registered users , and then passes to a subsidiary of Avast, Jumpshot to pack data packages to sell to the giants such as Google, Yelp, Microsoft, McKinsey, Pepsi, Home Depot, and marketing company of various kinds. The latter, as you practice, use them to enhance our sales channels, "profiling" your customers, improve services, etc.
