Global AV giant Avast launches a premium version of its once free-only private browser. The version is Chromium-based and PC-compatible but also includes an integrated VPN as well as Adblock technology bringing a complete security suite.
The VPN, however, provides access to 30 locations, which is a downgrade compared to the Avast standalone VPN app, offering no less than 55 locations in 34 countries around the world.
“The browser is the modern-day operating system, and with browser-based web threats one of the most common avenues of attack, we have a responsibility to protect our customers online by keeping their internet connections secure and private,” according to Director of Browser Product over at Avast, Fiona Cliffe. She proceeded to add that “We’ve built our browser around a Security & Privacy Center to provide this in a way that is frictionless for the user and based on the belief that in order to preserve people’s digital freedom, security and privacy needs to be simplified and demystified.”
The product comes with a 7-day free trial and several subscription rates: a monthly subscription plan costing $5.99 per month, an annual subscription plan priced at $4.17 per month, as well as a two-year plan amounting to $2.92 per month. The browser is now available to download at their official website.

When I’m not working, you’ll catch me watching a documentary or two, rewatching LOTR for the 20th time, or going on walks with my two dogs, which take up most of my free time. But hey, who’s complaining?
