Who is a typical avast! user?
There seems to be a common belief that the users of avast! and other free anti-virus products are real technical or somehow different from the "normal" population. Of course we know this is not really true….it is true that they are different in that they understand it is not necessary to use a product from the big paid vendors to get the protection they need. But, other than that our users are representative of the world as a whole—they are you, me, our parents, and our friends. We are all pretty normal.

Now of course this is not very exact as some did not answer. And of course I rounded some of the numbers above. But it does show that the profile of a free avast user is pretty average. On second thought, you all are above average as you are ignoring the hype of the traditional vendors and using the best protection available—avast!
Dismissing IoT device threats in the “internet of everything” world is easy. But privacy and personal data loss isn’t science fiction, so don’t fall victim.
What is the deep web, what is the darknet, and what can be found on them?
