Installing Avast AntiTrack

Avast AntiTrack is a privacy application that prevents websites and ad networks from tracking your online activity and collecting data based on your online behavior. AntiTrack does this by giving tracking cookies false information and creating an alternate profile that masks your real digital fingerprint.

When installing Avast AntiTrack, you are prompted to activate the product using a valid activation code. Your activation code can be located in a number of different places depending on the purchase method. For example, in an order confirmation email, on an activation card, or within another Avast product. For instructions on how to locate your activation code, refer to the following article:
