Browser protection features existed in its toolbar for Avira Free Antivirus, now available via Avira Browser Safety extension for popular browsers such as Firefox, Chrome and Opera. This one’s much better when compared to the Avira SearchFree Toolbar. By leveraging the power of Avira URL Cloud technology used in Safe Search, the Website Safety Advisor shows whether links in search results and websites you about to visit are safe (green check mark means no threats detected so far), however when you visit a malicious website, you will receive a warning.

When the number of trackers detected is shown with blue icon, means, no sites are blocked from tracking, because they’re required for the site to function. You can add any site as an exception, so none of the trackers on your favorite website will be blocked. You need to click on the Edit trackers button to do this.
