About this app

The only way to prevent data from being abused is to prevent it from being collected in the first place. Privacy Browser has two primary goals.

1. Minimize the data that is sent to the internet.

2. Minimize the data that is stored on the device.

Most browsers silently give websites massive amounts of information that allows them to track you and compromise your privacy. Websites and ad networks use technologies like JavaScript, cookies, DOM storage, user agents, and many other things to uniquely identify each user and track them between visits and across the web.

In contrast, privacy sensitive features are disabled by default in Privacy Browser. If one of these technologies is required for a website to function correctly, the user may choose to turn it on for just that visit. Or, they can use domain settings to automatically turn on certain features when entering a specific website and turn them off again when leaving.

Privacy Browser currently uses Android’s built-in WebView to render web pages. As such, it works best when the latest version of WebView is installed (see https://www.stoutner.com/privacy-browser/common-settings/webview/). In the 4.x series, Privacy Browser will switch to a forked version of Android’s WebView called Privacy WebView that will allow for advanced privacy features.

Features:
• Integrated EasyList ad blocking.
• Tor Orbot proxy support.
• SSL certificate pinning.
• Import/export of settings and bookmarks.

Have had it for quite a while now. It's still the very best when it comes to customization. The print page function is great and I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates his privacy.

Wow what a unique browser you can neutralize anysite like Google to stay behind while you surf with confidence. I used Soul browser it has okay features but nothing like privacy, I've always seen it but never tried now I'm wrapped. I also like mojeek great choice, also trackers have no hope tracking me. Its slightly different but easy, & hope i learn all functions. I hope updates aren't rare thank you Dev 😎 Suggestions- app icon very outdated a new sharp look wouldbe nice.

Tried the free version and was happy so bought the full version. I like it pretty much and no big problems. Good communication with developer from experience (thanks, missed the guide completely somehow!). It's fast, offers many options and pretty much what I was looking for!
