Key features

Avast Secure Browser has several features and uses various security measures to protect its users' information. Some of these are:

Security tools

  • Anti-Phishing: this allows you to protect your online identities and personal information from phishing attacks. By entering your email address and password into the tool, you can quickly and easily check if any of your personal information has been compromised in a data breach.

  • Password Manager: provides a secure way to store and manage passwords and generate new ones.

  • Bank Mode: provides a safe and secure environment for online banking by encrypting all data and communication between the user's computer and the bank's servers.

  • Hack Check: this allows you to check whether your computer has been compromised in a data breach. It does this by cross-referencing your email address with a database of known breached accounts.

Online activity safety tools

  • Anti-tracking and anti-fingerprint: help you prevent websites from tracking your activity or collecting data that could be used to identify you.

  • Webcam Guard: help you disable your webcam when you're not using it, thus preventing hackers from accessing your webcam and spying on you. Additionally, you can choose which app can access your webcam or mic.

  • Built-in VPN: protects you against online threats by encrypting your Internet connection.

  • Built-in ad blocker: allows you to block intrusive ads and online trackers. It also makes web pages load faster.

However, some features are not fully available. For example, Bank Mode is not turned on by default because it only works with Avast Antivirus.

Conclusions

Avast Secure Browser for Mac is a fast, secure, and private web browser that offers users a safe and convenient way to browse the Internet. It offers several features that make it an excellent choice for users looking for a secure and private web browser.
