New Browser 102.1 with a new privacy feature!
« on: June 17, 2022, 04:28:26 PM »
Hello Avast community,

We’re pleased to announce that we have released a new beta version of Avast Secure Browser (ASB) for Windows - version 102.1 with our brand new privacy feature, Privacy Guard, a solution that protects you from invasive ads, trackers, device fingerprinting and more.

A few of you will have the feature available in the browser. We are thoroughly testing it and making sure it's exactly what you want and need before we make it available to all of you.
So all feedback is welcomed and expected :)

Why better than ever
  • Faster than ever privacy shields that help you optimize your browsing experience and set your own rules when you are online.
  • With just one-click-of-a-mouse you can now block the ads you want, trackers, and even device fingerprinting to block even the expert tracking tech out there.
  • Want even more? Check out our more premium offer and see if it makes sense to you. Go PRO now!

How to find it

Privacy Guard, just block anything you want when you want. Look for the icon on the top right corner of your toolbar, where all your extension icons are.
Or look for our brand new tile in your Security and Privacy Center

Privacy Guard
Enhanced privacy protection
Block ads, trackers & more
Safeguard your online identity

Privacy Guard allows you to have the best experience when you browse the web. With faster loading times, less cluttered views and peace of mind. Control the level of privacy you want, from basic ads & trackers protection to a more advanced free-browsing experience.


Watch out for upcoming Avast Secure Browser blog posts about new features.

Hi,

I've got version  102.1.17190.115 (Officiële build) (64-bits) but don't see the Privacy Guard on the toolbar and as a tile in the Security and Privacy Center.
Could you show us a screenshot?
