Access this feature at:
Tools ▸ SafeZone

SafeZone is especially designed to protect sensitive data when you bank or shop online. It enables you to browse the web in a secure environment that is invisible to the rest of your system. It prevents any hidden spyware from collecting your private information.

Using the SafeZone

When you visit a banking or shopping site recognized by Avast, or a site in your custom list, by default you are prompted to use the SafeZone browser.

To open the SafeZone manually:

  1. Go to Tools ▸ SafeZone and click Switch to SafeZone.
  2. The SafeZone web browser starts automatically.
  3. When you are done, click the cross () in the right upper corner to return to your normal desktop.

When you end the session, your browser settings and any files downloaded are saved and will be available the next time you open SafeZone.
