Avast Secure Browser Review

If you're a Chrome, Firefox or Edge user You probably aren't thinking twice to other browsers for the web. Avast Secure is a great option if you want a browser that is focused on security and privacy. The browser based on Chromium comes with the ability to use a click to reference VPN as well as ad blocking, among other features.

You can change the settings of the ad blocker and set the mode to strict in order to block even the most persistent ads. And it includes the uBlock Origin plugin, which includes third-party filter list lists and dynamic filters to give you more control. Its phishing prevention helps you stay safe from scammy sites and its banking mode protects your credit card and password details from prying eyes.

Tab grouping is another feature that helps you navigate between tabs by keeping them organized. It also syncs bookmarks, history, and other information across platforms to allow you to continue browsing where you have left off. It also blocks online ads to increase the speed of loading websites.

The Avast web browser is nearly identical to Google Chrome. It lets you import your existing bookmarks, configuration settings, as well as other features that are available as you switch to the new browser. The only drawback is that it sends usage statistics and crash reports to Avast's servers, which you can change at secure://settings/importData. It's a good web browser with lots of privacy and security features.
