Avast Secure Browser Review is one of the browsers that puts the highest importance on privacy and security with features such as Bank Mode and anti-tracking technology. It has an integrated VPN, which allows you to stay safe and connect to the internet quickly. It is based on Chromium. This means that it appears good, works and can be used with Chrome extensions.
Avast Secure Browser comes with many security and privacy extensions pre-installed with it, including an ad blocker and an anti-phishing extensions, one for anti-tracking, a disguise for fingerprints feature, HTTPS encryption support, extension guard, password manager, and even the ability to double-check your credentials on websites like HaveIBeenPwned. You can find all these extensions within the browser’s Security & Privacy Center. You can also personalize each extension to suit your preferences.
The adblocker’s functionality is robust and can be set to block all ads. It also blocks flash files, making pages load faster. It can also identify websites that are phishing and warn you of scams that could be on the horizon however this feature isn’t as reliable than Google’s Scam Alert feature.
The browser claims to be “track proof,” but this is simply a fancy method of saying that it follows the Do Not Track standard, which isn’t as strong as it could be. The anti fingerprinting capabilities of the browser are also limited, and only scrambles a small portion of the user agent string.
