Avast Secure Browser Review is a browser that puts a big emphasis on privacy and security, with features such as Bank Mode and anti-tracking technology. It also comes with a VPN built-in, which allows you to access the internet quickly and remain secure. It is based on Chromium. This means that it looks, works and supports Chrome extensions.

Avast Secure Browser includes a variety of security and privacy extension already installed. They include an adblocker as well as an antiphishing extension that allows for anti-tracking and fingerprint disguise, HTTPS encryption, extension guard, a password manager, and even the ability to double-check credentials on websites like HaveIBeenPwned. All of these extensions are available within the browser’s Security & Privacy Center. You can also personalize each extension to suit your preferences.

The ad blocker can be described as robust and the mode of strict blocking can be used to keep most ads out of view. It also blocks flash files, making pages load faster. The browser is able to detect websites that are phishing and warn users about any potential scams. However this feature is not as robust that Google’s Scam Alert.

The browser claims to be “track proof,” but this is an elaborate way of saying that it utilizes the Do Not Track standard, which isn’t as secure as it should be. The browser’s anti fingerprinting capabilities are also limited, and can only scramble a portion of your user agent string.
