Securely surf the web while protecting your privacy

Your security and privacy are critical when you use your computer in the modern world, especially when you connect to the Internet. Avast Secure Browser integrates a security management console that helps you stay safe online.

Using Avast Secure Browser

When we launched the browser after its installation, it displayed a simple interface similar to Chrome, with the option to quickly import your bookmarks directly from Google Chrome.

We accessed the Security and Privacy Center by clicking the Avast icon under the search field. It opened a page that displayed various security and privacy options in tabs, some of which were already turned on while others were deactivated. Activating a feature was as easy as clicking a button.

Some of the security enhancements include:

  • Avast AntiVirus - The anti-virus feature automatically detected whether we had Avast anti-virus installed. We could scan our PC directly from the web browser using this feature.
  • Bank Mode - Allows users to safely shop online. Once activated, a new secure window will open ensuring all transactions are completed protected and safe.
  • Avast SecureLine VPN - Secures your connection and maintains your privacy while you surf the web. If you are already securely connected, it shows your VPN location.
  • Anti-Fingerprinting - Disguises your web browser fingerprint which limits online tracking.
  • Adblock - Blocks all ads when you visit a website.
  • Anti-Phishing - Protects users from dangerous websites and file downloads.
  • Anti-Tracking - This feature will block intrusive web trackers.
  • Stealth Mode - Once enabled, a new, secure window will open allowing you to browse the web privately without leaving tracks of your online surfing habits.
  • HTTPS Encryption - Enhances security by using HTTPS connections.
  • Password Managers - Securely manage your passwords and allows you to log in to websites with a single click.
  • Extension Guard - This function blocks untrusted extensions and plug-ins from installing on your web browser.
  • Privacy Center - Once clicked, users are taken to a new window that includes various privacy settings. You can clear your browsing history, cookies, cached images and files, and more.
  • Flash Blocker - All Flash content is blocked using this feature. Browse faster and safer.
  • Webcam Guard - Handy feature to control which websites have access to your webcam.
  • Hack Check - Unique feature to determine if your data has been hacked. Simple enter your email address and Avast Secure Browser will run a check against a database of hacked websites.

Conclusion

Web browsers create a major avenue for malicious people and content to infiltrate computers. Avast Secure Browser integrates security and privacy tools that help users stay safe online even when they do not have technical skills. The Security and Privacy Center includes features that you simply turn on with a single click. The Chromium-based web browser is fast and automatically imports bookmarks from Google Chrome. It is compatible with all Windows operating systems from Windows 7.
