Chrome: Managed by your organisation (Avast 20.2.2401)
« on: April 01, 2020, 04:40:39 PM »
After clean install of stable Avast free 20.2, when i first time opened chrome i was redirected to Avast online security page.
Then i noticed in my chrome You browser is managed by your organization
After read something about it, Avast can now remotely change my Chrome settings, it can spy what i am doing etc.
This is normal?

Hi,

I have the same problem. I made the update a few hours ago. Then when I opened Chrome, I encountered the same warning text. Then I did some research. I have read your message. I also updated my dad's computer to try it out. There was no warning before updating. Warning message appeared after Avast update.

There were people who had similar problems in the past years. They shared some solutions. I tried all of them one by one, but the warning letter doesn't go anyway. Maybe this problem is not for everyone. However, the common point of those who have this problem today is that they have made the Avast update.

My computer is licensed Avast Premium Security
My father's computer Avast Free Antivirus

Program version: 20.2.2401 (build 20.2.5130.561)

Please help us with this.
Best regards.

Serhan B.

Edit: I just did an experiment. I disabled Avast protection for 10 minutes. When I opened Chrome, that warning no longer appeared. However, when I activate the protection again, the same warning message appears again.

In summary; A problem after the last update of Avast. Please help us to solve this problem completely. Thanks.

Hi,

I think this is related to the Password Protection module.

Kind Regards,

I use Free version so there is no password protection. Any official explanation?

maybe it was the culprit, it was a new feature after i update my Avast, but i tried dissabling that feature  still that wont get rid the problem in chrome, what fixes mine is that i disable the whole "web shield" for now until this thing fixed and explained to us why this thing appears on chrome now, it really bothers me to see that every time i open chrome i see this thing

Avast changes only one rule:
QuicAllowed - false
Maybe in the protocol Quic found security hole. Avast does not change other settings. You can check this by opening
chrome://policy/
Although technically avast can manage your browser settings remotely (server > avast > chrome), in my opinion they won't.

Are these issues obvious or do I have to go looking for them?  I would not have known about problems with Avast 20.2 if I had not read about them.  My five Avast free 20.2 installations plus one AVG free 20.2 seem to be behaving themselves.

update: my firefox have also "manage by organization" and when you look at firefox "

about:policies#active"  theres a list of active policy

policy name:certificate / policy value: ImportEnterpriseRoots / True

based on my search thru web the ImportEnterpriseRoots are triggered by antivirus installed in PC and the only AV i have since the beginning was Avast and it happen after an update too

i did get rid the "manage by organization" in chrome browser by turning off the web Shield permanently for now but sadly didnt do a fix for firefox browser and i'm loosing options for my firefox to fix the issue

Turning off the webshield is also a very bad idea.

yes i know it was a bad idea going half naked thru web and its risky, but thats the only solution for me to get rid that "manage  by organization" on my chrome browser ,i will only turn web shield on again if theres going to be a fix update release for this, i dont want that message in chrome browser and i want to be in total control of my chrome and this is my own home computer why does it tell me it was manage by organization when im not in an organization in the first place , it feels Avast is breaching my privacy on my browser, if avast keeps triggering "manage by organization" thing in chrome browser i'm going to uninstall Avast ,everythings fine in previous update but not this latest update.

I personally haven't had any changes that got blocked due to this message. The notice has nothing to do with your privacy being controlled by Avast.
It's your computer and your choice. It's not something I'll be doing. Webshield is probably the one shield you should never be without unless you're totally off-line.

This is only feeling. Avast knows everything what you do in your PC and browser anyway, because it reads all even encrypted connections. Managed by organisation changes nothing. If is sending those data somewhere no one knows.
