AVAST INTERNET SECURITY TRIAL
« on: January 12, 2017, 04:56:18 AM »
Just downloaded Avast IS trial.
Installed OK but notice that when clicking into bank account on Internet Explorer, does not offer redirect to SAFE ZONE.
Works on Mozilla and Google Chrome.
Is it possible to tell which browser SAFE ZONE is using ?
Please excuse basic questions but IT knowledge is not very advanced .

In fact, SafeZone is a browser. More here: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=78.0

Thanks. I admit am a little confused by Safe Zone. I use Google Chrome exclusively for online banking with only my banks bookmarked and when I click onto any of them I get the link to switch to Safe Zone OK and take it from there. However when I click onto Safe Zone icon independently, it appears to be using Yahoo which I don't have installed and don't want to use.

You can change this in the settings.

Done thanks. 
At the risk of being labelled a complete idiot  :-[ :-[ Should I access my bank web sites via my Chrome browser then, when prompted switch to Safe Zone browser or...  open Safe Zone Browser and log into Bank sites.

Glad I was able to help.
If you know you're going to your banks website, you might as well open SafeZone browser right away. You can also use that browser for your regular browsing. :)
