Solving Avast "Online Content Unavailability" Issues


Avast Online Security is a free browser extension that helps protect web users against malicious websites and hackers. However, when users encounter issues with the plugin such as an inability to access available online content, they need to be able to recognize the problem and take action to fix it. Below are step by step instructions for addressing Avast Online Content Unavailability Issues.

Steps to Fix Avast Online Content Unavailability Issues

Step 1: Check Your Avast Settings

First, check the settings for your Avast Online Security extension to verify the settings are correct. The settings may have been adjusted since installation, so make sure that is not the cause of the issue with accessing available online content.

Step 2: Update your Browser

If the Avast settings are correct, check to see if the browser you are using is up to date. Outdated browsers can cause issues accessing online content, so make sure the browser is up to date.

Step 3: Change Extension Settings

Sometimes updating browser settings can cause the Avast Online Security extension to block the content you are trying to access. Try changing the settings on the extension to “Allow” the content. If this doesn’t work, try disabling and then re-enabling the extension.

Step 4: Uninstall/Reinstall the extension

If all the steps above do not fix the issue, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the extension. This reinstallation will reset the settings to the default settings and should correct the issue.
