They are removed from Google Chrome? I don't think so, or maybe they were removed then they restored them again.....I don't know but I see a button says "Available on Chrome"
Hello
Please ... click on my second link.
Thank you
Whenever I authorize it, Chrome disconnects it:

I see......You can move to Firefox browser if you want to use Avast Online Security.
I don't use Avast Online Security, I am good with 15 (security and privacy) add-ons some of them are recommended by Firefox.
I can send you my own collection of (security and privacy) add-ons , you can use them with Avast online security if you want.

Excuse the translation, I'm French but I only post here for Avast's answers.
I know Firefox and Chrome well, I work very often in duo, so at the same time with these two browsers.
I know well the recommendations of Firefox (modules)
I have reduced my modules and / or extensions to the maximum for several years ...
Behind each module, there is a developer
And, I don't know them all... :-[
I understand Raymond Hill well to follow him regularly

Me too I don't know all the developers but I try to make my browser in full protection.
I don't care about knowing the developers.
I read the reviews, and how many users use an extension, and when it was last updated. That is what I need to know.
But Ok....I understand you.

Why Google is removing these useful extensions from Chrome Webstore?
-> https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/avast-online-security/gomekmidlodglbbmalcneegieacbdmki?hl=en
Hello
Finally, I deleted the extension, I emptied the caches, then reinstalled Avast online security.
It seems to be working .
thank you

I have no problem with Firefox

Dev-Info: All our Chrome extensions were recently taken down what caused that the extensions were automatically disabled on user side putting there the warning message in extension options in Chrome. This was recently resolved with Google and both extension (Avast SafePrice/AOS) are back in store. It takes some hours to get autoactivated again.

The Avast Online Security extension is available again in the store, but my installed copy still has a big "This extension violates the Chrome Web Store policy." plastered across it, and Chrome keeps disabling it.

I had  a somewhat similar experience yesterday but the message cleared after re-installing AOS (probably unnecessarily) and then re-starting Chrome. The Avast extension is currently installed on my copy of Chrome and there is now no message.

I started to say it was now gone, but I just hadn't waited long enough. It now has the message and is disabled again.
