Safe browser from reliable developer

Avast Secure Browser isn't just another web browser that makes empty promises of protection as it actually stands true to its purpose: providing unparalleled online privacy and security. Developed by AVAST Software who's well-known for Avast Antivirus and trusted by 400 million users, it now offers a secure browser that's packed with built-in VPN, ad-blocker, and total data encryption.

You can freely download this tool on any of your compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, but some features are paywall restricted. It is definitely a greater private browser option than DuckDuckGo and Brave.

Is Avast Secure Browser safer than Google Chrome?

Google Chrome is probably the most popular web browser worldwide thus, it is also the most targeted browser by hackers. Just by that fact, it is safe to assume that Avast Secure Browser is truly a safer platform to explore the web. Many have experienced how excellent a performer this utility is when it comes to protecting users against being tracked online.

It contains features that can hardly be found in other browsers like Google Chrome and Safari. For instance, it provides an anti-phishing feature that protects you from hacking attacks and prevents any opportunity of you falling for online fraud. Furthermore, it serves unique features such as anti-fingerprinting and bank mode that allow you to open a separate, encrypted browser to safeguard your personal details entered for banks or online purchases.

However, experiencing this high-level security comes with some tradeoffs. You will most likely experience a slight performance reduction due to the extra security filtering that Avast Secure Browser gives. Unfortunately, you will have no access to the Chrome ecosystem anymore. This includes frequent Chrome patches and Chrome-specific extensions. Furthermore, you can no longer uninstall default extensions built into your browser.

For security-minded users

Avast Secure Browser is an ideal platform for privacy-conscious users who wants to always ensure that every online activity is highly protected. If you are willing to give up some performance benefits that Google Chrome and other mainstream browsers provide for extra protection and security while exploring the web then, this will perfectly suit you.
