Avast Secure Browser Review

The avast secure browser review one of the browsers that puts a big emphasis on privacy and security with features such as Bank Mode and anti-tracking technology. It also comes with an VPN integrated, allowing users to access the internet quickly and remain safe. It is based on Chromium and, therefore, is similar to Chrome and also supports Chrome extensions, as well as its own set of security-oriented extensions.

Avast Secure Browser comes with an array of security and privacy extensions pre-installed such as an ad blocker, an anti-phishing extension, one for anti-tracking, a fingerprint disguise feature, HTTPS encryption support, extension guard, password manager and even the ability to verify your credentials on sites like HaveIBeenPwned. You can find all these extensions within the browser’s Security & Privacy Center. You can also personalize each extension individually based on your preferences.

The adblocker is powerful and can be set to block all ads. It also has the ability to block flash data files, which can make pages load faster. The browser can also identify sites that are fraudulent and warn you about any potential scams. However this feature isn’t as robust than Google’s Scam Alert.

The browser claims to be “track proof,” but this is an elaborate way of saying it uses the Do Not Track standard, which isn’t as strong as it could be. The browser’s anti-fingerprinting capabilities are also limited, and only scramble part of your user agent string.
