Well, Avast uses our browsing to get money by selling it to advertisers https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/339832300521127936/525700342805954560/IMG_20181221_173910.jpg
Another proof:

Also AVG = Avast (https://youtu.be/La6GzwUsGwc)

So I wondered if the avast antitrack premium protects us from avast tracking

And... Why avast (a good Antivirus) would harm its customers in order to get money (I am thinking of going with kaspersky)

Still not answering my questions

1)Why a good Antivirus (like avast) would sell their customer''s browsing history in order to get money?

And...

2)Does avast antitrack premium protect us from avast tracking at our browsing history?
