Avast Online Security for Chrome is a free plugin designed to keep users safe while browsing the internet with a Google Chrome browser. It offers protection and peace of mind while users are online. They do not have to worry about all the unseen threats lurking on even some of the most reputable websites. Avast is constantly gathering the latest information on phishing scams and warns users if they visit a site that has been associated with one or any website that has a bad reputation. Users can rate websites with a simple thumbs up or thumbs down system. With over 220 million users, this provides a comprehensive resource for checking the reliability of websites.
Avast makes browsing the web feel safe. When you search for websites, Avast provides a safety rating next to each result. It blocks advertising websites and helps protect you from online followers. One of Avast’s most convenient features is its ability to automatically redirect users to the correct site when they accidentally type a wrong letter that could send them off to an unknown web page. The pro version includes even more safety features, such as switching users to its SafeZone when they visit bank sites, credit card accounts or anywhere else where they are entering personal information.
