Avast AntiTrack Premium (or sometimes misspelled as Avast Anti Track) is a privacy protection tool made by Avast. It was released in February 2018 as part of the product update. It’s basically a tracking prevention add-on against advertisers which keeps your digital fingerprint hidden. It works as a standalone app (like Avast Cleanup for example), so you don’t need to have the Avast antivirus installed. There is no free version available and the 1 PC, 1-year license starts at $39.99.
The obvious question is what is the difference vs. Avast SecureLine VPN, another privacy protection product? Well, they both do something else, but they work very well together. SecureLine VPN is a typical VPN product hiding your real IP address and location, encrypting your connection, and allowing you to bypass any geo restrictions.
While Avast AntiTrack stops any tracking attempts immediately and masks your digital fingerprint (ID), so no one can “see who you really are.” That’s something even the incognito mode cannot provide. On top of it, it just doesn’t block the tracking, it will also notify you when advertisers will try to track you.
Comparison of Avast AntiTrack vs. SecureLine VPN vs. Incognito Mode
