About this app

Using Firefox’s Fenix, Ghostery Privacy Browser offers comprehensive features that enhance user privacy for mobile browsing. Ghostery Privacy Browser integrates the powerful ad blocking and tracker protection of the Ghostery 8 control panel with improved web browser functionalities. We’ve cut out extra bloating for you - so all you need to think about is which site you want to visit next.

Never lose track of your bookmarks again! Customize your folders and bookmarks to make navigating to your top websites easier than ever before.

Enjoy best-in class security with our newest release. See who is tracking your data on the websites you visit and block or unblock these trackers (even unknown ones) individually or in bulk.

Private Browsing (incognito browsing) offers and further privacy protection by preventing the websites you visit from appearing in your browser history.

The mobile browser removes intrusive ads and clutter, resulting in a cleaner and ultimately faster browsing experience.

UI Updates
We’ve given Ghostery Android v3 a bit of a facelift. Enjoy all the same features you know and love but with an updated look and feel. Navigate to the Ghostery Overview Panel (click on the Ghosty icon in the top left of your browser) to take a look!

Latest version is just as bad as the PC one: forces you to send "non personal information" to something called "WhoTracks.Me" before you can actually use the Ghostery privacy settings. I didn't do it then and I'm sure as heck not doing it now! It didn't bother me before that the company was actually ad friendly since you could still opt out of ads and tracking, including their own human web thing. But this is a huge step back and against what they're supposed to stand for. Uninstalling.

A person doesn't install Ghostery because they want to be hip or trendy. They do it because they want to keep things simple and browse in peace. It seems in the September update much of that is now broken. The blue in the top bar hurts my eyes and many of the menus feel wrong. At the very least do away with the color from the top bar and go with greyscale so that it doesn't clash so badly with 90%+ of the web. Considering the lack of good alternatives, I guess I've switched to the duck duck go browser for now. I haven't been able to stand the way Firefox likes to organize things or play with their visual themes, so I simply avoid using it except when someone tells me there's a Firefox-specific bug in something at work. I certainly didn't want it on my phone. I know the old Ghostery had some issues with certain type of sites and downloads, but I accepted that as the price for a browser that bucked the trend to deliver a simple, clean web browsing experience. After all, I could always fall back to Chrome for the few things I absolutely needed to get to work and would simply copy/paste the URL in most cases avoiding searching and browsing in Chrome.

Update: I take it back. This app has become completely unusable. It crashes non-stop *and* it's not providing the same level of privacy that it used to. [With the new version I have problems with pages jumping as they load, lots of advertising. Still #1 for privacy, though. One thing I'd kill for: a way to export my bookmarks list so that I won't lose 3 years of bookmarks when my phone dies.]

hi Brooke, We're looking into possible reasons for the crashes. Sorry about that! Ad-blocking should actually work very reliably, so if you could send example websites of where you see ads to, it could help us identify issues. We'll add your bookmarks export request to the roadmap. Happy browsing! Your Ghostery Team
