New release of Avast Secure Browser Delivers Deeper Consumer Privacy

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Avast (LSE: AVST), the global leader in digital security products, has released a new version of Avast Secure Browser (code-named Aspen) which gives people even greater protection and control over their privacy, identity and personal data when browsing the internet. The new version introduces new features including Webcam Guard to give consumers complete control over who can access their computer cameras, and enhanced Anti-Fingerprinting to prevent websites from tracking people as they browse. This upgraded consumer privacy and protection capability is achieved alongside a high level of browsing performance and speed.

William Drewett, Senior Product Manager, Avast Secure Browser, said: “Consumer awareness of the need for online privacy and security has been heightened by recent high-profile data breaches, but people often find it complex or time consuming to work out how to protect themselves. In a recent Avast survey* of 8,000 people globally, 67% said they felt their privacy and security were threatened by information gathered about their online behavior from websites they visited. With our newest version of Avast Secure Browser, we’ve focused on making it simple and quick for people to protect their privacy online.”

Anti-Fingerprinting (enhanced)
Fingerprinting is the practice where many websites and advertising networks gather information about the web browser and system configuration to identify and track people. Browser fingerprints can be created even if cookies are rejected or a Virtual Private Network (VPN) has been installed, as they track more user information than just IPs. Avast’s Anti-Fingerprinting feature uses new, sophisticated techniques to camouflage the browser fully without compromising the performance of the websites visited. This makes the browser appear like thousands of other browsers, effectively hiding the user in plain sight by making them less identifiable.

Webcam Guard
Webcam Guard gives people complete control over which websites can access their computer cameras. When enabled, it will automatically block websites trying to use people’s webcams. Users can save preferences for favorite websites in advanced settings or opt to allow temporary access only.

Email hack check
Millions of stolen email addresses and associated passwords are being traded on the internet. For consumers worried about whether their details have been stolen in recent data breaches, Avast Secure Browser now includes a hack check feature that lets people know if their email addresses have been compromised. An option for a detailed report on the credentials stolen is provided along with guidance on generating a new random password for those affected.

Avast Secure Browser also includes other popular features such as Anti-Tracking, which prevents websites from tracking users online through cookies and other trackers; Bank Mode which stops hackers from seeing what users type so they are unable to steal passwords, credit card numbers and other personal data; Adblock which increases browsing speed and protects against malicious ads; Extension Guard which blocks unwanted add-ons or plugins; and Anti-Phishing which scans URLs for unsafe phishing or malware domains.

Avast Secure Browser is compatible with Windows 10, 8 and 7 and is available to download now: www.avast.com/secure-browser

*The survey, carried out by Censuswide on behalf of Avast in 2018, surveyed 8,102 respondents in the UK, US, France and Germany.

SHENZHEN, China, April 15, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — CCELL®, the world’s leading technology brand focused on creating trendsetting vape hardware products and advanced vaporization technology, today announced the launch of the Eco Star, the company’s all-in-one vaporizer focused on sustainability, wide-ranging oil compatibility, and ease of use.

The Eco Star’s casing material is made of biodegradable and plant-based PLA, a material that can be decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms. By adopting this type of eco-friendly casing, CCELL seeks to provide an option that can reduce the cannabis industry’s overall environmental impact and build a more sustainable society.

Built within the casing is a removable and recyclable lithium-ion battery. This thoughtful pull-apart design allows consumers to easily remove the battery before disposing of the casing, empowering them to contribute towards a greener Earth.

The Eco Star also features complete compatibility with all types of cannabis oils, clog-free dual air vents, and an isolated airway that ensures the cleanest possible vapor.

With increasing environmental challenges worldwide and tightening regulations on vape products, the Eco Star was introduced with the intention of raising environmental awareness across the industry.

The company has also implemented other measures to align its practices with its long-standing sustainability-focused values. These include offering biodegradable and plant-based PLA mouthpieces among its customization options. Additionally, the company uses energy-efficient aqueous processing in producing its patented ceramic heating cores to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Before the product’s official launch, CCELL provided their customers and consumers with an early look at the Eco Star at TPE24 and Hall of Flowers Ventura in the US, and Spannabis Barcelona in Spain.

Disclaimer for battery disposal: CCELL does not recycle lithium-ion batteries. Battery recycling requirements may vary by country, city, etc. Please contact your local recycling center for more details before disposal.
