The Avast Secure Browser Review is an internet browser that places the most importance on privacy and security, with features such as Bank Mode and Anti-Tracking Technology. It best parental control software comes with an integrated VPN that allows you to stay safe and access the internet quickly. It is built on Chromium. This means that it appears good, works and can be used with Chrome extensions.
Avast Secure Browser comes with a wide variety of security and privacy extensions pre-installed with ads blockers and an anti-phishing extensions, one for anti-tracking, a fingerprint disguise feature, HTTPS encryption support, extension guard, password manager and even the ability to verify your credentials on websites like HaveIBeenPwned. All of these extensions through the browser’s Security & Privacy Center. You can also configure each of them separately as your preferences dictate.
The ad blocker can be described as robust and the mode of strict blocking can be used to keep a majority of ads from being seen. It can also block flash data files which can make pages load faster. The browser can also identify websites that are phishing and warn you of any scams. However it is not as powerful than Google’s Scam Alert.
The browser claims to “track proof,” which is just a fancy name for the Do Not Track standard. The Do Not Track standard isn’t enough strong as it should be. The browser’s anti-fingerprinting capabilities are also limited, and can only scramble a portion of the user agent string.
