How to Protect Your Privacy using Private Browsers

There is a tough competition between browsers. Firefox made its enhanced tracking protection a default feature; Apple continues to pile privacy-focused features into its Safari browser; people are now becoming aware of their information being revealed on the web.

You have got several options in the online market about browsers, there are some browsers which put users privacy as their priority.

DuckDuckGO (Android, iOS, browser extension)

It was launched in 2008. It is a search engine that protects web-surfers’ privacy by not saving the history of their searches. It works in both operating systems ( Android, iOS ). To keep you unrecognized online, DuckDuckGo blocks identifying cookies which can track you and your device. In this search engine, your tabs and data can be cleared automatically after every session. OR you can erase this data manually by a single click. Or you can set a certain time to clear the history. And the most interesting thing about it is that it is easy to use, you only have to download the app in your devices.

Ghostery ( Android, iOS, browser extension)

Ghostery is a free and open privacy and security browser, which you can download on your mobile too -both in Android and iOS. It works by blocking adverts and tracking cookies it will keep tabs on when you are using the web. Ghostery tells you which tracker its blocking and which website is using how many monitoring tools. Ghostery tools are more advanced than those offered by duckduckgo.

Tor Browser (Android, iOS, macOS)

It basically has a TOR within a browser that cannot be tracked, monitor by any outside sources. It’s the best bet out there for safe browsing and excluding the iOS, it is almost available for free on all platforms. At the end of each browsing session, all the history would be wiped out, only the cookies will be left behind by the sites, in comparison to other browsers, tor browser is slower, but best in the anonymity of the browser even it can work in those countries where the internet is blocked or censored.

It only works on MacOS, Android, and windows. It is the only independent privately-owned browser which is safe to use without the tensions of getting monitored by external sources. The tor browser makes use of very complex encryption codes which keep away outsiders from accessing your data and makes it nearly impossible to access.

Brave ( Android, iOS, macOS)

Brave is a brainchild of Mozzilla, developed by Brendon Eich. It can protect you from being tracked and find the best way to serve your advertisement. Its tracker-blocking technologies are best in all. there are sites that track users’ devices, with Brave you can block tracker, script, fingerprint, and other such technologies. Brave also prevent from a phishing attempt over the web.

Features include tabbed browsing, spell checking, private browsing, download manager. It gives information about trackers and cookies on the page you have visited. On mobile, you can get control over trackers, and all data will be wiped out when you close the app. It is the widely localized browser. Firefox is the most widely used and the most secure browser in all the above-mentioned browsers.

Safari (iOS, macOS)

It is the graphical web browser developed by Apple. It was first released in 2003 in macOS, then in 2007, it was introduced in iPhone – only for iOS and macOS. Apple is continuously working to improve safari. Safari blocks the third-party tracking cookies and connects the dots on your web activity across multiple sites. If you use the weaker passwords, the browser will also let you know and tell that the password is insecure.

Some iOS-specific features for safari are;

  • Designed web pages in full-screen mode
