The browser’s automatic update fights new security threats, cryptojacking and more.

Attention, Avast SafeZone users — our newest update is going to help defend your digital life more than ever before.

The latest release — renamed Avast Secure Browser — has all the same SafeZone features, plus additional security and privacy to help defend against the newest threats, including additional features such as cryptojacking protection and an Extension Guard. All features are easy to control from a new built-in Security & Privacy Center.

SafeZone users will see this as an automatic update in the coming weeks — there is no need for you to take any action. Use the new version and enjoy the ad-free browsing and Bank Mode you’ve always had, only now with even more security and privacy features.
