1. SafeZone just installed itself on my computers... *sigh*... here we go again with the promo stuff... will it go subscription-only after a while?

anyway...
2. if you're keeping the User-Agent pretending your browser is Chrome, at least provide all the security features that Google Chrome has, or change the User-Agent to stop pretending it's Chrome. Google Chrome can use U2F.. SafeZone can't.

SafeZone is not recognizing my Yubikey U2F keys and is not working AT ALL for 2-factor authentication where U2F hardware security keys are configured.

Yubico test site here:
https://demo.yubico.com/u2f

Trying to access the U2F token, SafeZone is just sitting there, pretending to wait for the usb key, but is not doing ANYTHING about it, even if it's already connected.

decided to uninstall SafeZone from my second computer too... why the hell uninstalling a BROWSER requires a full computer reboot?

It isn't a conventional browser, and like any other integrated avast feature/function, when removed (in this way) it will require a restart to take effect.
