Advertising data collection opens a lot of tabs
« on: June 30, 2021, 04:06:00 PM »
Hey, I recently reinstalled the Avast Online Security extension, and I chose to use the Advertising data collection feature to disable a bunch of advertising companies. When I clicked it so it would start scanning, it opened about 15 tabs super quickly and did a lot of things really fast. Is this intended?
