AntiTracking Capabilities in Avast one?
« on: March 10, 2022, 09:08:58 PM »
I am trying to determine if the AntiTracking capabilities in Avast AntiTrack have now been included in Avast One?   I see that Avast One claims to have Antitracking capabiitites - is this the same level of AntiTracking provided in Avast AntiTrack?   I see that you must uninstall Avast AntiTrack to install Avast One... so the products do not seem compatible?    Please advise - Thanks!

It's more a duplication not an incompatibility.
For that reason, it needs to be removed prior to installing Avast One.

One more question, in PCMag's Sept 2021 review of Avast One, they stated the following:
 
"The Tracker Prevention component draws on technology from the standalone Avast AntiTrack. Advertisers and other trackers use data supplied by your browser to create a unique fingerprint that lets them track your online behavior. Tracker Prevention tweaks that browser data so your browser fingerprint keeps changing. Strangely, this feature appears only on macOS, not on any other platform, even though AntiTrack is available for Windows, macOS, and Android."

Is this AntiTrack capability now available in Avast One on Windows?

Hi,

Tracker Prevention (in Avast One) is available on Windows since November 2021.

Related question:

Does the AntiTracking capability in Avast One actually Randomize your web "fingerprint" ever few minutes?

Your unique online fingerprint is scrambled every time you visit a website.

Scrambling of fingerprinting in Avast One is only available in Premium. It is available free in Avast Free.
