Get started with the tour

Let advertisers know: it’s none of their business

What you do is monitored to build an online profile of who you are. With Browser Safety, find out who is collecting your private data, and block them.

Enable/disable trackers with one click

  • The green eye indicates a blocked tracker. This is your default mode.
  • By clicking on it, it switches to red. Tracking is now allowed for that advertiser.
  • Your decision for that tracker can apply to one website, or to all of them.

Block those bad and intrusive ads

One in four antivirus detections are now triggered by malvertising. To secure you against them and enhance your online experience, we block all bad ads, banners, and pop-ups for you.

You decide how many ads to display

  • Blocks all malicious ads by default
  • Lets you block safe, non-intrusive ones as well.
  • Prevents ads and social networks from tracking you

Never land on harmful websites – unless you want to

Integrated into Avira Browser Safety is a cloud-based URL scanner, which detects and blocks over 80 million infected, phishing, and spammy websites every month.

We advise, you decide

  • For your safety, harmful websites are automatically blocked before they load.
  • But if you want to visit the page, you can by clicking “Never Block this Website”.
  • You can always change your mind later by blocking it again.

Keep the page… not the bad content

Even safe sites may contain infected content. So we detect the harmful elements on an otherwise safe page and prevent them from being shown.

What’s kept, what’s blocked

  • If a web form was hacked, or the site includes malicious ads, they get blocked. The rest of the website is loaded.
  • If you decide to trust the website nonetheless, you can elect to load all elements on the page.
  • In case you change your mind, you can reverse the permission by blocking the harmful elements.

Don’t let hidden applications sneak by you

Avira detects monthly 9 million potentially unwanted applications (PUA), which bloat PCs, display ads, and collect private data. Browser Safety detects them.

Know what you’re downloading

  • If a PUA is secretly bundled with another file, the whole download gets blocked.
  • You can decide to download the file anyway, or look for it elsewhere.
See how it prevents browser hijackings

Prevent your browser from being hijacked

Some adware alter browser settings to redirect you to harmful search engines. Our discreet extension not only blocks these redirects, but also helps you reset your browser settings.

Avoiding malicious search engines

  • Malware or PUA redirects you to a malicious search engine.
  • We notify you and prevent the page from loading.
  • You are offered to install Avira SafeSearch Plus to fix your search settings.

Know before you go

The web contains over 4.7 billion webpages. And for each one listed in your search results, Browser Safety discreetly indicates whether they’re safe to visit.

Our color-coding scheme

To the left of every search result, you’ll notice a small circle with an embedded “i.”

  • Green indicates the site is safe.
  • Red indicates the site is malicious.
