The avast security browser review is one of the browsers that puts a big emphasis on privacy and security with features like Bank Mode and anti-tracking technology. It comes with an integrated VPN, which lets you stay secure and connect to the internet quickly. It is based on Chromium and, therefore, functions and looks just like Chrome and also supports Chrome extensions as well as its own security-focused extensions.

Avast Secure Browser comes with a variety of privacy and security extensions pre-installed with it, including an ad blocker, an anti-phishing extension, one for anti-tracking, a fingerprint masking feature, HTTPS encryption support, extension guard, password manager, and even the ability to verify your credentials on sites like HaveIBeenPwned. All of these extensions are available within the browser’s Security & Privacy Center. You can check it out also personalize each extension individually according to your preferences.

The ad blocker is robust, and the mode of strict blocking can be used to keep a majority of ads out of view. It also blocks flash files, which makes pages load faster. The browser can identify sites that are fraudulent and warn you about any potential scams. However this feature isn’t as robust that Google’s Scam Alert.

The browser claims to “track proof,” which is just a fancy term for using the Do Not Track standard. This standard is not as solid as it could be. The anti-fingerprinting capabilities of the browser are rather limited as they only scramble the user agent’s string.
