Avast Secure Browser is a web browser intended to provide safe and secure browsing. It comes with built-in cybersecurity features that defend you from a range of threats without reducing performance and reliability. This is because it's based on Chromium - an open-source browser by Google. This ensures that it offers all of Chromium's quality and usability features. Its user interface is almost the same as that of Google Chrome.
The main difference between Avast Secure Browser and other browsers is that Avast has all the security and privacy functionalities built-in. Plus this is accessible from the Security & Privacy Center, this can be accessed by clicking on the shield icon next to the address bar. Anti-Tracking blocks servers from tracking your online transactions. It is complemented by the Anti-Fingerprint feature makes the web fingerprint more distinct and unnoticeable to phishers. Other specific features include the Privacy Cleaner and Private Mode. They encrypt your internet history and prevent it from storing any cookies and spam that could breach your security.
Avast Secure Browser also comes with 24/7 security features that make your browsing experience much better. Anti-Phishing and Bank Mode helps to block suspicious pages and stops anyone from accessing your private details via a keystroke logger. This security app also comes with a Password Manager that lets you log in easily while keeping your login details secure. Due to its lightweight Chromium build, the speed of the Avast Secure Browser competes with Google and Firefox.
The Adblock and Flash Block functionality also add to the performance of the browser. Adblock prevents most ads from appearing so web pages are loaded faster. Flash Protect obstructs Flash-based images that can overload processing power and overwhelm the entire system. With Avast, you will be able to monitor which pages will have access to your camera because of the Webcam Guard function. The web browser can also have HTTPS protection for connections when browsing.
