Very happy to provide feedback on the browser. I really want a better browser that Chrome but I'm finding that Avast loses the ability to connect to any site on wake from sleep (Mac OS Big Sur) so I have to force quit it several times a day. Is there any way to provide feedback to you on this issue? Also upgrading to a newer version of Avast leads to all saved passwords disappearing - not a great outcome when I've saved tens of passwords.

I would like there to be a security window to block you from accindentally clicking some links to shady websites, for example recently there's been links hidden in some YouTube comments.
Would be good if there would be some confirmation asking if one really wants to open up that link so to say.

Currently, Avast will certainly let you know if the link you click leads you into danger. It will block your access to dangerous or infected sites. It's very hard to miss one of these warnings.

Turn off the 'are you happy with us' pop up. It appears whenever I move to a new page, reload the page, even change tabs. It's fucking annoying and I want it to stop harassing me. This is why I used this in the first place. FIX THIS BULLSHIT >:( >:( >:(

Please clean up your language. There are minors on this forum.
A screenshot of the popup might be helpful. Thanks

I did not voluntarily install "Avast Secure Browser." Apparently the last update to the free version of Avast Antivirus was automatic and no longer allowed users to uncheck the option to install the browser. I was extremely surprised when I rebooted my computer after an update to find a customized version of Google Chrome plastered on my screen. I wondered what had happened.

I originally started using Avast because it was an antivirus program that was not a resource hog. It just worked. I didn't care who made it. Despite the criticism and disparaging remarks that were neither deserved nor had nothing to do with the creators or the product, I promoted its use for decades. I understand that the freeware model isn't the best business plan, so promotion, subscriptions, and paid products must support the the company. However, pushing an internet browser and messing with my preferences is too far. Please only make installing products only a voluntary opt-in option.

For years of a quality product, I am being nice.

Thank you,
Tom Sisson

hello,
can you re give the choice to the users for select and delete cookies manually that's will be help full for juste actualise a cookie if a bug coming or something else...
if I want to delete a cookie manually, I have to delete them all or go through the Windows cookie manager and it's too boring because the cookies are not well referenced in relation to the website to which they belongs...
