Avast Secure Browser PRO protects devices and operating systems against web threats
Avast has released a premium version of its free secure and private browser, Avast Secure Browser PRO. A Chromium-based browser for Windows PCs comes with built-in VPN and Adblock technology for people who need a suite of security, privacy, and performance services to fight web threats.
The built-in VPN, which provides access to 30 locations worldwide covering all continents except Antarctica, helps ensure the highest levels of privacy protection by encrypting all inbound and outbound connections.
Avast Secure Browser PRO for Windows provides users with transparent and powerful digital protection regardless of their level of technical confidence, and ensures that the choice of privacy is available to everyone while browsing the web.

“The browser is the modern operating system, and with browser-based web threats one of the most common avenues of attack, we have a responsibility to protect our customers online by keeping their Internet connections secure and private. “said Fiona Cliffe, director. of the browser product at Avast. “We have built our browser around a security and privacy hub to provide this in a frictionless manner for the user and based on the belief that to preserve people’s digital freedom, security and privacy must be simplified and demystified. “
