Avast has released an Android version of Avast Secure Browser to extend its platform support beyond Windows and Mac on desktop to mobile.
Avast Secure Browser for Android was developed following Avast's 2019 acquisition of Tenta, a private browser backed by Blockchain pioneers ConsenSys, and has been built from the ground up by privacy and cybersecurity engineers focused on total encryption. At its core is strong encryption including AES-256, ChaCha 256-bit, and the latest TLS/SSL cryptographic protocols for the data transport layer. To ensure that user DNS requests are kept private and secure, Avast Secure Browser for Android supports multiple DNS options straight out of the box, such as DNS over TLS, DNSSEC and decentralized DNS support.
Additional built-in security and privacy features available with Avast Secure Browser for Android include:
- A fast VPN that encrypts all inbound and outbound connections to the VPN location
- An ephemeral user PIN code for device access that is never stored on any server nor on the device itself
- Anti-tracking technologies used to prevent websites, advertisers and other web services from tracking online activity
- Adblock integration to improve website load time
- An encrypted media vault
Later this year, the mobile version of Avast Secure Browser will be made available on iOS. Avast Secure Browser is currently compatible with Windows 10, 8 and 7, Android and MacOS..
