People know how many sites can track them these days and are taking active steps to prevent it. A good privacy web browser can help in this. Privacy is a bigger deal now than ever before. There are three types of privacy browser. The first actively deletes all traces of you browsing the web after you exit, including cookies, history, passwords, etc. The second type blocks trackers, ads, and keeps websites from knowing who you are. Finally, the third type does both. We have all three types on this list. Here are the best privacy browsers for Android.
DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser
The privacy browser by DuckDuckGo isn’t half bad either. DuckDuckGo is a fairly trustworthy name in online Internet browsing. The company’s web browser is measurably less intrusive than Google or Bing and people choose it for that reason. The app blocks all hidden third party trackers that it can find and then show you what it blocked. It uses its own search engine by default and it doesn’t track your online movements. It also uses HTTPS everywhere to keep your web life a secret. The app works fairly well as a browser and we honestly have no real complaints about it.
The app boasts a small download size (500kb). Dolphin Zero is an above-average incognito browser. A Do Not Track mode that prevents the app from storing a bunch of information as well as an ad blocker. It’s not quite as powerful as some others. However, if all you need is to make sure nobody sees your browsing history. This one does a reasonable enough job. Plus, it has some neat features like gesture controls, themes, and the ability to download video content.
This Browser comes with most of the usual stuff including ad and tracker blocking. A private search, an incognito mode, HTTPS Everywhere, script blocking, third-party cookie blocking, and more. Brave Browser is a decent privacy web browser. This browser was torn down and rebuilt several times over the last few years and there are a few bugs here and there. It works rather well other than that. Plus, the app is free and it looks nice.
Epic Privacy Browser
This not overly popular on Google Play, but a lot of people know about the desktop variant. Epic Privacy Browser is our diamond in the rough pick for this list. It uses Chromium as a base but includes a bunch of privacy features over top. Thus, you get a very Google Chrome-like experience without Google Chrome-like privacy issues. The app includes an ad blocker, HTTPS Everywhere, and every browsing session is in incognito mode. Additionally, it comes with an encrypted proxy via a VPN with eight servers around the world. We also like the tracker counter. It reminds us a lot of when Ghostery Browser was still good.
Firefox browser has been in a feature freeze for several months. While Mozilla works on a replacement, which you can try out right now in Firefox Preview. Preview is completely re-written from the ground up, with several key advantages over the existing Android browser. A customizable interface, dark mode support, improved performance, and an updated tab management system.
However, there are still some missing features, hence the ‘Preview’ name. There’s no support for extensions, outside of the handful currently available from Mozilla’s partnered developers. But Mozilla is working on that. Password sync also isn’t fully implemented, so you’ll want to install the Firefox Lockwise password manager if you need to access logins from your Firefox accounts.
Without Google Chrome a list of the best web browsers for Android wouldn’t be complete. It’s the default browser already on most phones and tablets, but Google hasn’t quite rested on its laurels. Chrome updates roll out every six weeks, with each update usually having several new features. Chrome is the dominant web browser on both desktop and mobile platforms. So there’s not much to talk about, most of you are probably using it right now, and you probably know what it can do. Because most of Chrome is open-source, and most other browsers on Android use that open-source base, the vast majority of Chrome’s features end up duplicated in other apps.
Kiwi Browser was first released last year, as yet another Chrome-based browser for Android. However, last year the app added something that no other browser on Android has support for desktop Chrome extensions. That’s right, nearly every extension that works on Chrome will work on Kiwi. Firefox for Android supports Firefox extensions, most of which are functionally-similar to their Chrome equivalents. But Kiwi’s compatibility is still very impressive. Beyond that, all the usual features are present ad blocking, tracking script blocking, a dark mode, and so on. There’s also a feature for blocking AMP pages, though the same is also possible with Firefox and this add-on, and the dark mode also makes pages dark.
Samsung Internet is based on Chrome, but it has a completely custom interface that fits in with Samsung’s One UI design language. Samsung Internet started out as the pre-installed web browser on Galaxy phones and tablets, but Samsung opened it up to all Android devices in 2017. It’s now one of the most popular browsers on the platform, and it’s jam-packed with features. Some of the advantages it has over Chrome include tracking protection. A limited selection of add-ons, and a button layout that is easier to use on tall phones.
