Avast, the company that developers computer security software at a user level, has now developed its own browser. Avast Secure Browser has been developed upon Chromium and its functions are oriented towards protecting Internet users against data theft, malware infections, and online frauds.

More privacy for users

The idea behind Avast's safe browser is to prevent users from being spied during their online activities or when clicking on links. For such purpose, it brings together the security tools necessary in a single accessible place and is based on the following principles:

  • Anonymity: hide your identity so as not to leave any digital trails.
  • Faster browsing: it incorporates an adblocker to speed up downloads.
  • Protection of personal information: avoids both malware and phishing.

To meet these principles, it incorporates the following functions:

  • Banking mode.
  • VPN browsing.
  • Automatic detection of malicious links.
  • Blocks website tracking.
  • Adblocker.
  • Anti-phishing.
  • Anti-tracking.
  • Incognito mode.
  • HTTPS encryption.
  • Password manager.
  • Extension protection.
  • Cookie cleaner.
  • Flash element blocker.

And if that weren't enough, it comes along with a tool to download videos from different sites.

This tool is based on Chromium, and thanks to that, is easy to use regardless of your computer experience. In other words, if you were a regular user of Chrome, its interface will be familiar to you. However, Avast takes advantage of the installation of its antivirus to, almost without permission, install its browser. If you want to get rid of it without losing all the protection of Avast, follow the steps specified below.
