Softonic review

Free and complete security browser

Avast Secure Browser is a web browser designed to make browsing more secure and safe. It includes cybersecurity solutions that protect you from a wide range of threats without sacrificing performance or dependability. This is because it iis built on Chromium, a Google open-source browser. 

This assures that it has all of Chromium's quality and usability features. Its user experience is nearly identical to Google Chrome. The primary distinction between Avast Secure Browser and other browsers is that Avast includes all security and privacy capabilities like a Security & Privacy Center which is conveniently located in the address bar.

How do you stop tracking?

Avast Secure Browser’s Anti-Tracking prohibits servers from tracking internet transactions. The Anti-Fingerprint feature enhances this by making the online fingerprint more distinctive and untraceable to phishers. Two further distinct features are the Privacy Cleaner and Private Mode. They encrypt your browsing history and prevent saving cookies and spam which might jeopardize your security. Avast Secure Browser also offers security features that are accessible 24/7 to enhance your online experience. 

Anti-Phishing and Bank Mode aid in blocking questionable websites and keystroke loggers from obtaining your personal information. This security solution also comes with a Password Manager, allowing you to log in fast while keeping your login information secure. Because it utilizes Chromium, the Avast Secure Browser competes with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox in terms of performance. The Adblock and Flash Block capabilities also help to speed up the browser. 

Adblock stops most ads from showing on your screen, allowing websites to load faster. Flash Protect prevents the system from crashing due to Flash-based pictures surpassing the machine's processing capabilities. Because of Avast's Webcam Guard feature, you'll be able to keep track of which pages have access to your webcam. When surfing, the web browser may also use HTTPS to encrypt communication platforms

Stay private. Browse safely.

Avast Secure Browser ensures that its users' privacy and security are protected. For further protection, other Avast products such as Avast Free Antivirus and Avast Secureline VPN can be used in conjunction with the Avast Secure Browser. The privacy and security of this web browser are prioritized. While it lacks certain customization options, it does provide users with a private browsing experience.
