Avast has just announced the launch of its private browser for iOS. This is Avast Secure Browser, a proposal that already has support in Windows, Mac and Android, thus being a multiplatform browser. The launch coincides with a major browser upgradeIt is not only available for iOS, but can also be installed on iPadOS and even iPod.
We wanted to test the operation of this browser, as well as analyze what are your keys to being different from the restThis is because Avast stands for a very secure proposal, with a clear focus on privacy.
This is Avast’s browser
The Avast Secure Browser, as soon as it is opened, tells us that it is based on three pillars: ad blocking, crawler blocking and VPN included navigation. As for the VPN, it connects to Strasbourg, France. If we want to change the location of it, we’ll have to move to the premium version of the browser. However, with the free version we can navigate with French VPN, to hide the location of the device.
By default the ad blocker and web crawlers are active, and you can easily reverse these options from the settings. Another interesting option we can activate from the settings menu is lash outThis is a good point to avoid accumulating eyelashes every time we jump to new sites.
We have an advanced mode through which we can create custom navigation modes, a very interesting function
The advanced mode allows us to customize even more. First of all, we see that the search engine for this browser is OneSearch. We can choose from an extensive listing, including Google, Yahoo!, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Amazon, StarPage and more.
Within the navigation we can activate the dark mode, avoid screen captures, set up custom navigation modes and, in short, adjust the navigation experience to our liking.
