Privacy policy not to be seen

For a browser that purports to protect one’s privacy is rather odd that when you try to see Avast’s privacy policy in the app the screen goes blank and then reverts to the home screen. Haven’t seen it yet so I’m not using the app.

UPDATE - The developers responded to my review demonstrating what I believe to be good customer care. I went back and found that my pop up blocker was preventing the privacy policy from loading. The blocker was set only for Safari so I don’t know why this browser was affected. With the blocker turned off I can see the privacy policy.

Memory hog

I’ve noticed that this app takes up an increasing amount of memory on my phone and iPad. After using it for only a few searches, the memory used jumped from 137mb to over 400mb and increasing. Most of this increase is data storage. What’s up with that? And is there a way to fix this? Good app otherwise but the memory issue is a potential deal breaker.

Most secure browser on the App Store!

This is the most secure browser on the App Store and I highly recommend it I just wish the Anti-Fingerprint feature was added soon. I also have a suggestion for the adblocker, my suggestion is that currently the strict adblock mode blocks 99% of ads but could you add a feature where strict mode blocks 100% of ads for people who have a paid avast subscription because it would make the app a lot better.

Developer Response ,

Hi Minecfafter, thank you so much for the wonderful feedback, and for letting us know how we can improve! I'll circle back to the team with your suggestion. If there's anything else you'd like to see feel free to let us know any time. Have a great day and thanks for using Avast Secure Browser!
