Browse fast and secure

When surfing the Internet, perhaps the most important thing to consider is security. If you use a secure browser, your access to the Internet is ciphered, which means that your data is much harder to intercept and steal. This is especially important for using public Wi-Fi or dealing with sensitive information. The app supports Windows 7 and higher.

What Avast Secure Browser can offer its users

Avast Secure Browser is a new browser from Avast Antivirus developers. It's designed to be more private and secure than other browsers. The most recognized industry sites have recommended it as a top pick for privacy. The application offers some other valuable features:

  • To be sure that your data and browsing activity are protected from malware, you can pair Avast Secure Browser with Avast Free Antivirus. Avast can offer you the best possible protection against online threats while ensuring your privacy with these two products.

  • The app has an anti-tracking feature that helps you take control of your online privacy. With this tool, you can block all third-party tracking or only allow certain companies to track you.

  • Avast Secure Browser also has a built-in password manager that can help you keep your passwords safe and secure.

  • Bank mode allows you to browse the Internet and conduct online transactions with added security. When bank mode is enabled, your web browser creates a secure connection to your website and encrypts all data exchanged between your computer and the site.

  • Adblock is an effective way to block ads and pop-ups. It also prevents data trackers from following you around the web.

  • The new Hack Check feature allows you to check whether your email address or password was compromised during a data breach.

  • Avast Secure Browser has a built-in Anti-Phishing feature which works by checking the websites you visit against a database of known phishing sites and blocking any that it detects. This feature is turned on by default in Avast Secure Browser, and it's strongly recommended that you leave it in this status.

  • Webcam Guard can be used to protect your privacy by blocking unwanted access to your webcam and microphone and by allowing you to choose which sites can access their webcam and microphone.

  • Anti-fingerprinting is a great tool that helps you to remain anonymous online and prevent your browsing information from being tracked. Your IP address and location will be hidden, and your browser history will be erased after each session. In addition, the Avast Secure Browser comes with a built-in VPN, which encrypts your data and further protects your privacy.

Note that not all of the features described are fully accessible. Bank Mode is disabled by default because it requires Avast Antivirus to function. Additionally, since it's a premium software, the VPN integration requires an Avast SecureLine VPN license.

Conclusions

Avast Secure Browser is an excellent tool with many features that can help keep you safe online. With features like built-in security and privacy tools, this app can help you stay safe. However, it doesn't have a lot of customization options. Avast Secure Browser is an excellent option if you're looking for a good, secure, and private browser.
