avast! SafeZone is a self-contained, virtualized environment that comes with a special web browser (an avast version of Chromium similar to Google's Chrome browser) designed to be a security zone. Using its own DNS servers to allow browsing the web in a private and secure environment, SafeZone allows users to conduct financial transactions and other sensitive web use without having to worry about security threats by utilizing an encrypted HTTPS connection. Although SafeZone browser utilizes a Chromium-based engine, it is an internal part of avast! Internet Security. When switching into SafeZone you are completely isolated from your Desktop and the only available application is the SafeZoneBrowser which generates a process (SafeZoneBrowser.exe) when it is launched. Each open tab will generate another instance of that process so it is not unusual to find multiple copies of SafeZoneBrowser.exe showing in Windows Task Manager.
