The avast security browser review is one of the browsers that puts a big emphasis on security and privacy, with features like Bank Mode and anti-tracking technology. It comes with an integrated VPN that allows you to stay safe and surf the web quickly. It is built on Chromium which means that it is similar to Chrome and supports Chrome extensions as well as its own set of security-oriented extensions.
Avast Secure Browser includes a variety of privacy and security extensions already installed. They include an adblocker, an antiphishing extension and an extension to block tracking and fingerprint disguise, HTTPS encryption, extension guard, password www.connectsecure.info/avast-secure-browser-review-powerful-features/ manager and even the ability double-check credentials on websites like HaveIBeenPwned. You can access all of these extensions within the browser’s Security & Privacy Center. You can also personalize each extension to suit your preferences.
The ad blocker is robust, and the strict blocking mode can be used to keep most ads out of view. It can also block flash files, which makes pages load faster. The browser can also identify websites that are phishing and warn you of any scams. However this feature is not as robust that Google’s Scam Alert.
The browser claims to be “track proof,” but this is simply a fancy way of saying it is using the Do Not Track standard, that’s not as strong as it could be. The anti-fingerprinting capabilities of the browser are also limited and only scramble a portion your user agent string.
