    Avira Browser Safety 2.0.0 Beta
    Version 2.0.0 comes with major redesign of the user interface. The security status has been moved from the top center of the page into the extension icon, this will remove the potential to interfere with similarly placed functionalities of websites. The extension icon will now show you how many trackers have been detected on the page or if the website is unsafe.

    Clicking the extension icon will now give you access to the information about the security and tracker status of the page. In the top right of the extension popup you can find the settings, give feedback or find help.

    Chrome Extension (Google Crome Web Store)
