Privacy technologies

Championing technology that puts customers’ privacy first

For more than thirty years we’ve been keeping people safe in the digital world. But as the online world has changed, so have we.

We recognize that living freely online today is about more than just cybersecurity. It’s also about privacy and identity.

We draw on every ounce of our experience, insight, and expertise to build products that help our customers retain control of their data and who they choose to share it with.

Dedicated to protecting privacy

Our customers are always at the centre of our privacy-by-design philosophy. Our dedicated Privacy Labs focus on innovation in the following three core areas:

Privacy threat intelligence

In an increasingly digital world, new threats to our online privacy are emerging every day. To make sure the rights of our customers are respected today and tomorrow, we work to continuously analyse the privacy policies of the apps, services, and products they use, as well as monitoring the latest tech trends.

Product insights and innovation

Our intelligence network plays an ongoing role in gathering insights which inform the development of our privacy products. These insights allow us to continually evolve new features which give our customers the visibility and control they need to best manage their privacy settings.

World-class research

Our cybersecurity, AI and privacy teams regularly work alongside some of the world’s leading academic institutions including Stanford University, Berkeley University of California, and the Czech Technical University to carry our research into key areas of privacy and security. We never stop looking for ways to improve our ability to protect the privacy of our customers.

Stay informed, stay protected

We continuously monitor security issues to protect our hundreds of millions of users from emerging threats. To get the latest product features first, and hear about threats from Avast’s Threat Labs experts visit the Avast blog.
