Guardio - hacking protection for Edge and other browsers
« on: January 01, 2022, 08:12:39 PM »
If I have Avast Premium Security is this a concern: The FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) handles an average of 2,000 complaints a day. Even with antivirus programs, Edge users not running Guardio are at risk.

The same for Avast Free and Avast One.

@ r@vast 
Are you referring to AOS?

Or, something else?

Still no response to AOS question from @bob3160. Should that be interpreted as "No, its something else" or "Yes, AOS is the mechanism to enable the 'feature' in the Avast products"?

You can check that protection against AOS in the browser sandboxed (also as an extension)
Should also function with Avast Secure Browser (that I work as a beta-tester).
