Safety
Risk impact

Avast Online Security & Privacy requires a lot of risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Avast Online Security & Privacy if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Avast Online Security & Privacy is well trusted and should be safe to install.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

the anti tracking feature is now behind a paywall rendering this extension pretty much useless

The anti-tracking feature is no longer free for Windows 11. Avast tells you to upgrade to Avast One.
