Avast AntiTrack Premium
$40 per year / 1 PC

Quoted from their website: (Avast AntiTrack Premium | Anti-tracking software)

What is Avast AntiTrack Premium?
  • Avast AntiTrack Premium is a privacy application designed to keep your identity safe from the latest online tracking techniques.
  • Avast AntiTrack Premium injects fake information into the data that make up your digital fingerprint. This action changes what information trackers and third-parties can see about you. Avast AntiTrack Premium also clears tracking cookies from your browser.
Does Avast AntiTrack Premium block ads?
  • Avast AntiTrack Premium is not an ad blocker and you will likely still see ads on some of your favorite websites. However, Avast AntiTrack Premium prevents targeted ads (for example, an ad for a product you recently viewed) each time you clear browsing history and data.

According to Avast, you should be using their AntiTrack Premium service, because what you have now is not enough???

VPNs don’t stop tracking
  • On its own, a VPN is like Superman: he takes off his glasses and puts on tights, but come on! We can still tell he’s Clark Kent.
  • A VPN will encrypt your connection, protect you on public Wi-Fi, and disguise your location, but advertisers can still track you and identify you based on your PC and browser settings.
What if you already paying for Avast SecureLine VPN, you're still screwed. :ROFLMAO: Now you have to add an additional charge.

Ad-blockers break sites
  • Like doctors who treat your symptoms, but not the cause of your disease, ad-blockers hide targeted ads, but they don’t remove trackers.
  • Unlike anti-tracking software, ad-blockers affect the way websites look and work, and they need to be updated to keep up with the constant wave of new ads.
Most Ad-blockers have an anti-break lists to help prevent breaking websites, in my experience, I've rarely seen a broken site with an Ad-blocker installed.

Incognito mode isn’t incognito
  • If the thought of your spouse finding out what you’ve been doing online keeps you up at night, this works perfectly.
  • Incognito Mode prevents cookies, visited websites, and autocomplete fields from being saved, but your IP address is still visible and your ISP can log your traffic, so it’s not completely anonymous.
Chrome/Firefox/Edge certainly does notify users about this, on every Incognito tab.

Would you Pay? What are your opinions on this (another) Premium service? Can you recommend any other similar services about Digital Fingerprinting? Is it too late to erase your "digital fingerprint", or can AntiTrack Premium can help your Digital Fingerprint (online)?​

Financial transactions are done in a sandbox and contents deleted afterwards. Haven't been hacked or jacked to date and no social media. That's all I care about since I assume that true and complete online privacy is an ephemeral dream and exists only in your mind.

How come Avast needs all this money all of a sudden?

It looks like an interesting piece of software but I'm not ready to spend that amount of money on it. :)
Avast has been really hyperactive lately with releasing new components like Avast Cleanup, Driver Updater or this one but to be honest, even though I like Avast IS which I enjoyed using for a long time, I don't really care much for these new additions.

Well avast have point and I agree with avast but giving $$$ not possible to a company which is not listening to their customers and sell there details. I tried with Multilogin app and easily fool this scan and service is free of cost and have paid plans aswell. Mulilogin app is available on GNU/Linux,windows,Mac OS.
