pk, thanks for the update, and hope they're addressing also the MS Outlook issue/bug.

Hi there everybody.

A simple feature I'd like is just a SHORTCUT to SafeZone in my current Desktop.
Does anybody know the path to it? (not to the safebrowser, but to the SafeZone).

Cheers,

Right now, there's only shortcut (icon) for SafeZone + SafeZone browser. You can define keyboard shortcut for SafeZone only. Would you like to see this option as for icon only? I thought current implementation won't run another SafeZone browser if there's already running instance. If it's not true (for icon), then it's a bug.

There are two things: small SafeZone icon in gadget and AIS 7.0.1456 option (Additional Protection -> SafeZone -> Expert Settings) which creates/removes "Launch SafeZone Browser" shortcut from Desktop.

@ pk
Since you mention avast gadget:
I take it that now Microsoft is saying the Sidebar/Gadget side of things are vulnerable and they are no longer developing it (pushing win8 metro apps) will avast be removing the avast gadget, not that I use it in my win7 netbook.
Windows 10 Home 2004 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 20.9.2437 (build 20.9.5758.0) UI-1.0.579/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

That option creates a shortcut in my SafeZone desktop, but not in my User Desktop in Windows.
I'm using AVast IS 7.0.1456 under XP SP3, so I don't use gadgets or widgets.
In my Windows user desktop I have many shortcuts such as Firefox, Outlook, etc. I just would like a shortcut to launch the SafeZone (otherwise I must left click the bottom Avast icon and right click to launch it, then click on Addictional protection, and then click to SafeZone)... :-\

An even better implementation would be a "SafeZone+Browser" Top Icon in every internet browser, so everytime I go to Paypal or any other website which requires an online payment, I can click that button and it switches to the SafeZone and Chrome Browser is launched together with the url I was visiting... that would be awesome!
This would save a lot of time!  8)

Cheers!

I see, avast settings are for all users. Icon should be created for the current user or for all users.

You can alco right-click on avast's tray icon and choose "Switch to SafeZone", or define a keyboard shortcut. Alternatively, you can create own shortcut (select avastui.exe as target and define the same command parameter "/sfzonebrowser").

This feature will be in next avast version. We're working on it.

Great!...However, when you say "next avast version", do you mean AVAST 7.0.1XXX or ...AVAST 8?...

I don't understand something here. What is the purpose or functionality of Safe Zone without the browser? I thought it was only for ultra secure browsing when doing things like banking and online shopping.

Chromium is open source so Google doesn,t has control of what can or can't do the developers with the code. Google only controls Chrome.

This is akin to saying Mozilla has no control over Firefox? Google provides the FUNDING for Chromiun, who do you think pays these people? They don't develop for free.
