Avira Browser Safety

Avira Browser Safety 1.8

It blocks harmful sites, protects your privacy, and finds shopping discounts

Avira Browser Safety offers privacy protection and enhanced data security by preventing you from accidentally accessing harmful websites. It comes as an extension for the two most popular web browsers in the world: Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. In both cases, Avira Browser Safety is easy to install and set up. By using this handy tool, you will be able to completely avoid malicious websites, as it warns you about such websites before you get to open them. It even notifies you when they appear in the results provided by search engines. The protection offered by this tool benefits of being truly reliable and accurate, as this neat app makes use of the Avira URL Cloud in order to precisely warn you of malicious sites in your search results or when you visit a site.

Avira Browser Safety also lets you block trackers from the visited websites so that your browsing activity remains private. It additionally allows you to view exactly how many trackers, belonging to what ad service, are active on the visited webpages. Another functionality provided by Avira Browser Safety is the fact that it may show you good prices from trusted merchants for products you’re shopping for, based on accurate price comparison. Last but not least, Avira Browser Safety includes a PUA (Potentially Unwanted Applications) Shield that can detect any concealed programs in download portals and recommend secure alternatives.

To sum it all up, I'm not a big fan of security-related browser extensions as they usually come with all kinds of hidden problems, but with Avira Browser Safety that's not the case and I have to admit that this neat tool really looks useful and worthy of at least a try.
