New browser version 86.1
« on: November 13, 2020, 09:19:05 AM »
Hello everyone,

We’re pleased to announce that we have released a new version of Avast Secure Browser (ASB) - version 86.1.

Changes
  • (NEW) Improved design for popup screens
  • (NEW) Suggest a feature is added to the 3-dots menu
  • Improved our Anti-Phishing solution, that allows the browser to scan faster URLs, decreased the number of false positives, more efficient, precise, and overall performance improvements

Fixes
  • Improved importing data from your previous browser
  • Improved stability and speed of cross-platform sync

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to get this latest version:
If you have ASB already installed, it should be updated automatically (feel free to visit ‘secure://settings/help’ to trigger an update faster)
Alternatively, you can download and install ASB from our official site

We hope you enjoy the changes we have made, and as always we would love to hear your feedback. In case you have an iOS or Android phone, please try out the recently launched iOS or Android version of Avast Secure Browser, more information for iOS see here (English locales only) and for Android here or go straight to the App Store or Google Play Store

If you were after the Windows version (which this topic was about), you didn't say.
If you wanted the ASB for Windows version, the link was in the text, see attached image.
Which was https://www.avast.com/secure-browser 
Here there are more links to download Avast Secure Browser for Mac, Android and iOS on that page.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.5.6015 (build 22.5.7263.730) UI 1.0.711/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

So why did your update mess up my ability to use bank mode? It was working fine and when I went to use BM it won't load. I switched to another computer running Win 10 and it worked until I updated Windows  ASB and now it won't load there either. GRRR  Don't they check this stuff out thoroughly before they roll it out?

I was having trouble using the Bank Mode too lately. I now realise it has something to do with the updated version of Avast Secure Browser (ASB). The thing is, in order to solve the problem, I uninstalled ASB and tried to reinstall it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reinstall it no matter how many times I tried. Every time I would get a message that the failure of installation has something to do with my internet connection, which works perfectly by the way. I have updated Avast Premium Security on my pc but still, the installation fails every time I try.

So, could someone from Avast team provide me with some guidance about how to install ASB? I would really appreciated it. Fixing the Bank Mode should also be a top priority.

Thanks.

Same problem here too. No Bank Mode. Worked fine until update. I have uninstalled it now and will wait until it is fixed.

Thank you, Misha. When I open the developer mode, my version only shows Avast Bank mode 1.2.0.195 and I have no option to update to version 1.2.0.197. Am I doing something wrong or am I too impatient?

I found another post that suggested to click on update several times and it now updated to the .197 version and the problem is fixed. Thank you very much.

Hi
are you sure you don't have "update" button like in my screen ?

I've tried that solution and it doesn't work. I need to pay a number of bills and don't wish to use "standard internet" as I've been the victim of fraud. Hope you can resolve this issue soon.

Please note that I first saw your message 24 hours ago but decided to wait until today to try it again.

What worked for me was the following:



After doing these steps, I restarted the Browser and Bank Mode now works as before.
