Title: Avast SecureLine VPN for Firefox
Post by: Asyn on June 30, 2019, 05:05:32 PM
Avast SecureLine VPN for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/avast-secureline-vpn/

The Avast SecureLine VPN Web Extension is a simple browser application that allows you to control your SecureLine VPN easier and faster from your browser toolbar. One click, and you can turn your VPN on or off, or change where you’re connecting from to give you a perfectly seamless privacy experience.

Please note that this is not a stand-alone VPN product. It requires Avast SecureLine VPN to be installed on your PC or Mac, which must be activated with a valid license. But once you get that going, then it’ll be good to go.

Nice addition to the Browser.
Very convenient.
No issues, I added the extension on one machine while Secureline (beta version 5.4.468) was Off, then used the extension to turn the VPN  On :)

EDIT: Confirm Bob's issue with non beta version 5.3.458 on machine HP Compaq saying to install Secureline
Guess the Browser extension only works with the 5.4 beta version of Secureline

Kind of strange to roll out an extension that only works with the beta version unless,
that beta is about to become the full release.

No way to update from within the program ???
Only way to update seems to download the latest version from here: https://www.avast.com/secureline-vpn#pc (https://www.avast.com/secureline-vpn#pc)
and install it over the existing version.

To me, this App seems a bit redundant. I control it via the actual app.
Since it protects on a network level, why would you need browser integration?

Well, I like it. It's quite handy and comes with integrated WebRTC blocker. 8)

Sorry I have the same issue.  Just signed up for secureline so presume I have the latest version.  However, the firefox extension just says "Sign up for Secureline" even though I already have.

This software is driving me round the bend.  I am trying to access bbc iplayer from Spain but they quickly see I am not in the uk.  Not surprised - leak tests show that the connection is leaking WebRTC ips like a sieve.   Been trying to logon for several days now and not succeeded once.  In spite of following numerous guides and suggestions in ths forum

Quoting me from 6/30 is misleading. This has since been addressed.

Make sure you have the desktop version of SecureLine installed and working.
