Whenever we surf the web, for online transactions, for shopping or for searching information; our personal information is always at risk. And that’s why online security is always on priority for web browsers. The same is the case with Avira Search Engine. This antivirus software company had already released a free WebGuard protection for search and browsing earlier. However, now Avira has expanded its Safe Search feature with additional functionalities, helping you to find the best offers, travel deals and weather information. Avira Safe Search will also enhance your protection by adding appropriate security information to every search result.
Avira Safe Search
After launching Avira Browser Safety and Avira SocialShield the company has now launched Avira Safe Search and SafeSearch browser extension. Avira Safe Search will be expanded with additional functionalities, helping you to find the best offers, travel deals and weather information. Avira Safe Search will also enhance your protection by adding appropriate security information to every search result.
Avira Safe Search will protect your online privacy in the following ways.
- Avira blocks online threats: Whenever you open a new search option, Avira Browser blocks website trackers. At the same time, the browser warns users about the harmful websites before they visit them.
- Do Not Track Me feature: The tracking set up is often used by companies and online stores to know the search pattern of a user. Though a useful tool for advertising companies, it can be intruding for the users’ privacy. Moreover, this tool can be used with malicious intent. Avira has the ‘Do Not Track Me’ feature activated which stops any such ‘tracking’ by the websites.
- Safe Search: Avira offers Safe Search for the users when they perform a web search. This feature makes use of the Avira URL Cloud™ technology to scan all the search results and inform the users about harmful content. Such links are tagged as “unsafe” and users are asked not to visit them.
You can download the Avira SafeSearch browser extension. In case you don’t want to install the Avira Safe Search extension, you can simply go to the SafeSearch homepage and start exploring.
