The only method to prevent information from being abused is to forestall it from being collected in the first place. Privacy Browser has two main targets.

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

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

Most browsers silently give websites huge amounts of knowledge that enables them to trace you and compromise your privacy. Websites and ad networks use technologies like JavaScript, cookies, DOM storage, user brokers, and lots of other things to uniquely determine each consumer and monitor them between visits and throughout the net.

In contrast, privacy sensitive options are disabled by default in Privacy Browser. If considered one of these technologies is required for a website to operate correctly, the user might choose to turn it on for simply that visit. Or, they will use domain settings to routinely activate sure options when entering a selected website and switch them off once more when leaving.

Privacy Browser at present uses Android’s built-in WebView to render web pages. As such, it works greatest when the most recent version of WebView is put in (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 known as Privacy WebView that will enable for superior privateness features.
