Free browser slowing down
« on: March 02, 2023, 09:53:30 PM »
Since the most recent upgrade asks to remove ad blocker, which I do, page loading on websites has dramatically slowed down. I went to Edge browser and had no problems. Why?

Hello Bruce,

"Since the most recent upgrade asks to remove ad blocker"
- We don't show any message to remove adblocker. Maybe this was shown by a website which did not like your adblocker :) This is quite often the case. Secure Browser has built in adblocker called Privacy Guard. I recommend to turn this feature on. If you had any 3rd party adblock extension installed (not made by Avast), you should not need them as they would do similar thing as Privacy Guard and consumes more system resources...

Maybe, could you go back to Secure Browser and send us Diag info? Copy text from this popup: secure://settings/diagnosticInfo
