    Hello!
    I installed Avast with its "Avast Online Security" extension to Chrome. This add-on conflicts with extension "HTTPS Everywhere" so I have to disable the latter. Maybe I should enable the "HTTPS Everywhere" and disable the "Avast Online Security" instead? What provides more security? Or is it possible to make them both get along?

    Thank you.

    I would continue to use HTTPS Everywhere and trash AOS. Instead, you could use uBlock or AdBlock Plus for adblocking and privacy. Make certain phishing and malware detection is enabled in Chrome.

    You could also use Norton Connect Safe to help block malware, phishing and/or porn sites.

    AOS is also used to automatically switch to SafeZone while visiting banking sites so if you installed Avast Internet Security or Avast Pro it is necessary for this function. This automatic switching has never worked correctly for me.

    Thank you. So I'll continue to use Https Everywhere instead of AOS. As for adblocking I use Adblock Plus and like it very much.
