Silent Mode is a great new feature in Avast that can improve your gaming experience by eliminating annoying notifications and alerts. This article will explain how to enable silent mode in Avast and make the most of it while playing.
Avast offers more than just antivirus protection. Avast is a favorite choice for gamers, however certain games can cause it to slow down your PC or even interrupt the game. Avast’s “Silent Gaming Mode” disables all notifications and alerts while you play a game. This allows you to focus on your game instead worrying about the performance of your PC.
It is important to keep in mind that while this mode is turned on all antivirus protection features are activated. This includes a virus scanner and a threat detection scanner and other advanced features. If you are concerned about these features that could affect your PC’s performance you can disable them prior to using the Silent Gaming Mode.
You will first need to make sure that your computer is in compliance with Avast’s system requirements. This means you’ll require at least a Pentium III processor, 20GB of free space and an i.e. 512MB of RAM.
Click on the “Notifications tab” in the Avast settings once you have completed the minimum system requirements. You must tick the box at the top of this menu labeled “Don’t display any pop-ups, alerts or messages (Silent gaming mode)” in order to enable this mode.
