I finished analyzing updates to Avast Online Security extension. It is indeed far more privacy friendly now and properly respecting user's choices. Quite surprising development given how they denied anything being wrong with it. #avast #privacy #spyware
Got an email from Avast with some clarifications. In particular: "we completely discontinued the practice of using any data from the browser extensions for any other purpose than the core security engine." This is huge! Asked a few followup questions, will update blog post soon.
