A question about SecureLine VPN
« on: March 29, 2019, 03:12:20 PM »
Greetings,

I have used Avast for a few years now and I like the service but I haven't tried their VPN. Right now I'm using Surfshark on my iPhone for browsing on public wi-fi or using my own mobile data, it blocks ads so less ads=less data used. Does SecureLine VPN provide ad blocking? Also, on my VPN I experience 10-20% speed drop depending on the server location I choose, what speed drop can I expect from SecureLine? Thx!

Thank you, I understand that speed drop is the "price to pay" for browsing through VPNs servers, and it's fine with me as long as it is not above 30%. I'm more interested in the ads blocking part, does SecureLine provide adBlocking? I can see Avast provides adBlock on its browser, but I'm interested in their VPN features.

SecureLine is a VPN. A VPN is a tunnel for your connection to keep information encrypted and hide your location.
It isn't an adblocker. More information: https://www.avast.com/en-us/secureline-vpn#pc

I understand that, just the VPN that I'm using has an inbuilt adBlock feature, I wanted to know if SecureLine VPN has a similar feature to Surfsharks. I'll check the free trial that you provided in the link, thank you.
