Want to permanently disable or remove the Avast email signature from all outgoing emails? You’ve come to the right place!

When you install Avast, by default, there will be an email signature setting which is turned on which inserts one of the following messages to all of your outgoing emails:

“Virus-free.”

“This email has been sent from a virus-free computer protected by Avast.”

“This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software.”

“This email is free from viruses and malware because Avast Antivirus protection is active.”

The message is usually appended at the bottom of all outgoing emails if you’re using Outlook, Thunderbird or any other email client that is installed on your PC. It’s also inserted if you’re using Gmail, Yahoo Mail or any other webmail provider via your web browser.

This can be an annoying feature when you don’t want to tell each and every email recipient that the message has been scanned for viruses.
