Latest reviews

  • (2022-09-25) DA H: the anti tracking feature is now behind a paywall rendering this extension pretty much useless
  • (2022-09-17) Joseph Mervyn Imutan: The anti-tracking feature is no longer free for Windows 11. Avast tells you to upgrade to Avast One.
  • (2022-09-13) Сергей Кореневский: Not support Vivaldi browser. Не работает в Vivaldi браузер.
  • (2022-09-09) Aubrey Paixão: Simples, eficiente e completo. E além de tudo é grátis.
  • (2022-09-03) Vladko Vladky: Fungeje dobre
  • (2022-08-26) 水無月: これが原因でSNSシェアボタンが正常に表示されなくなっていました。
  • (2022-08-20) Д. Янев: Great addon
  • (2022-08-20) Akotski1338: this extension used to show other people's rating of a website and it would allow me to know if a website ive never visited before is trustworthy. now all it does is block trackers. i dont know if someone bought avast or whatever but it recently became a piece of garbage
  • (2022-08-10) Sascha Gonsior: Schlechte Konfugierbarkeit. Es werden zwar Tracker geblockt,kann aber keine einzelnen Webseiten als Ausnahme hinzufügen,da die Erweiterung als Adblocker bei einigen Websites erkannt wird. Auch auf Webseiten die Facebook oder andere soziale Medien wie Twitter zum antworten eingebunden haben,blockt die App weg,man kann also nicht interagieren. Wer hat euch gefragt Facebook und co zu blocken? Es gibt auch Leute die loggen sich über Social Logins ein. Die Leitfaden sind der größte Witz und machen mehr kaputt in den Einstellungen der sozialen Netzwerke als sie nützen,gerade,wenn man diese nutzt. Als Adblocker-Ersatz viel zu bescheiden,da Google Anzeigen durch gelassen werden,die ebenfalls unseriöse Werbung machen für Systemtools(Treiberupdater/Reg-Cleaner) und andere Abzocke, da eben nur bestimmte Tracker geblockt werden. Warum man den Adblocker nicht vom Avast Secure Browser übernimmt, oder ein angepassten ublock Origin(zumal man den ja drin hatte im Secure Browser) in Chrome als Erweiterung nimmt,tja frag mal Avast. Man kann nur hoffen das Avast nicht den Weg wie Avira geht und auf die Schnapsidee kommen auch Kryptominer anzubieten und dieses Tool nur zum Ausspionieren ohne mehrwert benutzt. Beim Antiuvirenschutz zeigen die Hersteller,das es ihnen nicht mehgr wichtig ist,die Leute zu schützen,sondern durch Sinnlosoptimierer den PC kaputt zu machen und sinnvolle Tools als teueres Upgrade anzubieten,Avira ist hier ganz groß. Hier muss man Avast mit dem Ransomwareschutz in der Free Edition wirklich loben.
  • (2022-07-23) Oscar: It has always worked very well. Except for today. Today it suddently started warning that Google itself is infected (notes-pa.clients6.google.com), with the effect that I can't use Google Keep unless I turn off Avast.
  • (2022-07-15) Frol Frol: 10 балов расширению
  • (2022-06-04) Evelyn Alvarez: It looks like an advertisement for Avast One (which is good for a cellphone), and offers a free download. But, the download is for windows or mac and I'm on a chromebook so I can't use it. A couple of pop up ads came thru and that never happened before. It does let me know if I'm being tracked. If you block 3rd party cookies it won't let you opt out of some tracking. It let me block all but one.
  • (2022-06-01) John Doe: Nice extension, works well. I've particularly enjoyed the (until recently) free anti-tracking feature! I am of course, writing this review since they now demand payment for this service. I have some sarcastic remarks I'd like to make, but for now I will hold my tongue and offer some help to any other users who recently noticed this. If you go find where Chrome stores extensions and determine which folder holds this one, it seems 22.3.143_0 was added today (May 31, 2022). If Chrome hasn't deleted the previous version, you may be able to reinstate it. Good luck! Now, I suppose I could just … not be a cheapskate, and buy Avast One Premium like it says to but... no. I find it funny they renamed the extension "Avast Online Security *and Privacy*" only to now remove the best (and quite a long-standing) privacy feature. I really want to rant about it, but this review is too long already.
  • (2022-05-31) plasma 8321: This and avasts anti virus used to be good. But they're just getting more and more greedy. The anti virus is pretty much just adware now, and we cant even block trackers anymore with this extension
  • (2022-05-08) Adolfo Grosso: Hola, alguién aquí sabe si esta extensión de Avast tiene lista blanca (white list) para sitios webs especificos? Deseo colocar algunos falsos positivos ahí. Gracias.
  • (2022-05-04) Stilian Chitov: the best
  • (2022-04-17) Amirhosein Bakhtiari: perfect
  • (2022-04-01) Nikita Kokoriev: Unfortunately, the checker generates false positive alerts, which can lower the user's trust rating for sites that do not have these problems. I think that such situations are unacceptable for a company of this level. Upd:The problem was quickly solved within a day.

  • (2022-03-23) ᛒᛃᛟᚱᚾ Orso: Impedisce la riproduzione video di alcuni siti
  • (2022-03-14) 平井伸治: ・ブロックされたサイトを回避する方法が無い。 ・メールに書かれていた本家とは違うURLにアクセスしても、ブロックされなかった。  他のセキュリティ会社でもされなかったので、この拡張機能が問題なわけでは無いが、  すべてをブロックしてくれるわけでは無いので、こういったものを使用していても注意は必要。

  • (2022-01-08) unika vorita: virus eltávolitás
  • (2022-01-07) Agnieszka Kurowska: Rozszerzenie jest praktycznie wpychane na siłę do przeglądarki. Chrome ma też funkcjonalność tego rozszerzenia, różnica tylko taka że dane z przeglądarki trafiają dodatkowo do właściciela Avast'a
  • (2022-01-04) 肖云开: 非常好用的插件,希望支持一下Safari A nice tool, please support Safari
  • (2022-01-02) Alexander Fetyko: Odporúčam vrelo
  • (2022-01-02) dia fwnia: Used to be great but after the update I don't like it much. I have to disable "prevent all tracking" in "social media" so I can play a particular game while logged in facebook, but it continues to be disabled in all other sites. And I want it disabled just in one site. It's very annoying.
  • (2021-12-28) Pericles Mayer: 有選項可以封鎖廣告商追蹤,但是不知道這個擴充功能後面做了什麼事情,沒有顯示出封鎖的動作。 另外他有封鎖了清單上面的所有廣告商,唯獨就留了一個taboola.com,但就是taboola.com在一直跳窗阿;我一直以為是我電腦中毒了,後來才發現原來就是你留了一個後門給他呀。真棒!釣魚的不是其他網站,就是你。

  • (2022-04-24, v:22.3.120) Annemarie Mugan: cookies
    Avast is forcing me to accept it's cookies and blocking my way to the internet unless I do. I have tried to restart my computer but it does the same thing. I have been using Avast for the past 10 years and I always pay for a one year or more. I have 11 months left of my contract with Avast. After seeing what they are doing to me, it will be the last time. Do you realize this behavior is almost like blackmail? They are supposed to protect me but not like a mafia. I have taken a screenshot and so I would love to hear from Avast.
