This was problematic for users who concern themselves with illegal practices. The moment those users are identifiable, the police can track them down and arrest them. Tor is no longer as safe as it once was. Many groups, organisations, and individuals want access to the information the Tor browser is hiding and try to get that time and again. In , one group of researchers succeeded. Financed by the government, they took a closer look at the Tor browser and were able to collect information from the browser for months on end.
Weaknesses in the Tor software can surface in less compromising ways as well: in , users found a leak that could easily make IP addresses of Linux and MacOS users visible. Like every other system, it has its weaknesses. Even though leaks are constantly being patched, you can never be sure whether that happens in time. Aside from this, there are more reasons to be worried about the safety that Tor offers.
Here are a few. First of all, Tor users are regularly hacked. This could happen to anyone, which means every user should be aware of it. A second danger is that you could still be tracked online, even when using Tor. Bad exit nodes are one example of how this could happen. If the person who controls this node wants to, they could see all the traffic passing through it.
If this happens — as was the case with the NSA — your internet data is no longer private. One thing worth mentioning is that you usually do stay anonymous in such a situation. Instead, they focus on uncovering illegal activities, some as horrifying as the spreading of child porn on the dark web. Tor was initially built to allow for anonymous communication within the US Navy. Some people fear that the US Navy still has secret access to the traffic going through the browser.
This is, however, not at all the case. An oddity, therefore, would be discovered and eliminated within moments. Before you tackle the internet with this browser, you should be aware of the dangers of the dark web. A final security issue we should discuss has to do with the dark web.
Tor allows you to access this hidden part of the internet. The dark web is part of the much bigger deep web. The dark web is unregulated and, therefore, quite fascinating. Among other things, you could come across marketplaces for drugs, weapons, and illegal credit cards. Not every website on this dark part of the internet is as dodgy as this. Some pages allow people to speak their mind freely without having to fear prosecution from a dictatorial regime.
The unregulated nature of the dark net results in a space that holds both the best and the worst of humanity. Always be careful when you use Tor to visit the dark web. Try not to get caught up in websites that infect your computer with malware. Stay away from websites that concern themselves with illegal activities. These dangers range from privacy risks to more serious attacks on your safety such as viruses and other forms of malware. Read our FAQ! Generally using Tor is safe. In fact, Tor was created to browse the internet more freely, safely and anonymously, anonymizing your traffic by guiding it through different servers.
However, Tor can be used for some riskier things as well, such as accessing the dark web. This is something which can pose dangers to be careful of. If you want to know what these dangers are and how to safely use Tor, read this article.
Generally Tor is already quite an anonymous and safe browser as is. However, especially when using Tor to access the dark web, but also in other cases, danger can always strike. After all, a VPN offers some significant privacy- and safety advantages. Read all about these advantages in this article. If there are any better, that is what I am looking for. I have tried to follow the developers and read what they have but unless I am missing anything, they look ok to me. These should cover all of my basis unless I have overlap.
Again, I have tried to read their white papers and everything else I can and could not see any negative. But I may have missed something. I get the impression people on this and other threads may practice browser compartmentalization, but I came across the below article that, basically, says that websites can fingerprint users even if they use more than one browser, which makes tracker avoidance much more difficult.
Could you please address this? I would be curious to know your thoughts as I think it might warrant an article pointing out if using more than one browser is beneficial for people to maintain their privacy. Yes, this is the issue of browser fingerprinting, but there are solutions for that as well, discussed in the browser fingerprinting guide.
Fingerprinting mentioned in the article relates to computer fingerprinting and super cookie. Continue protecting the browser from fingerprinting as well using compartmentalization and necessary settings or extensions. But it now my computer lags and clicking the drop down commands or just typing seems to be some what difficult. However when I temporarily uninstall uBlock Origin Legacy things seem to be normal again. I do not use any other add-ons and only use Microsoft Security Essentials, any ideas or suggestions?
You could try using a VPN ad blocker. Another option is a network-wide ad blocker, like Pi-hole. Or check out AdGuard. Another thing, I have been using Brave browser on my mobile phone for a year, and, by default, it does not have any ads.
There is an option called brave rewards that pays you for seing ads, but this option needs to be activated by the user. I would be interested to read your opinion of Avast Secure Browser , particularly its Android incarnation. I uninstalled the Windows desktop version because every time it got updated, it set itself to start automatically at login time, without asking. There are a lot of complaints about this on their forum.
However, the Android version seems to be much slicker, and comes with a browser only VPN, so I prefer it to my usual browser Firefox for activities such as online banking. Is this a good choice, or could I do better, short of using a full-function VPN? Avast was recently caught collecting user data through their products, which was then being sold. When I typed Basilisk in the search field on this site nothing came up. So I did a web search with SwissCows for private and secure browsers.
I guess there are probably good reasons that you have not mentioned those two here. Looked at the Pale Moon website, which does offer Lots of customization. Could it be used without creating an account for the Forum? While the things mentioned to harden Firefox may be good, I have issue with what is under the hood. Hence Brave and Dissenter are my two choices. Once Dissenter gets more stable and more redily updated, I may switch completely over.
Brave should work with them. I wonder then, as based on another website which was referenced somewhere on this site if Brave, and by extension Dissenter, strip all identifiable info before doing its call to Google? Yes it seems Brave strip identifiable information once online as mentioned in the said article comparing browsers connection.
It makes extra connections compared to Brave…. Thanks for pointing that out. As far as dissenter, I know it is not as refined right now and I would only use it to really help them along. But until they get to any deep level of security, Brave is my go too right now. I think it might be better to install your preferred ad blocker or content blocker e.
On Android, I have a hard time downloading those extensions but on my computers, that would give the best of both worlds. I have dug a little deeper into the Dissenter. It seems as though the major issue is with that Dissenter plug-in, GAB. That is where it seems to have its largest issues for the author. I wonder then, if by disabiling that extension, plus the other extensions I had mentioned above, if that would mitigate the issue?
Going to try it out. If so, then your best bet would be to use Brave exclusively. Despite your seeming reluctance to use Firefox due to alleged connections to George Soros, your using it would not benefit Mozilla in any way. The only time it would is if you paid for it or any service provided by the group.
In my view, Brave and Firefox are the two best browsers in terms of privacy and security. Thank you for the info. I have just moved back to brave and am really happy with it now with the extensions. Thanks again. Though Dissenter is a fork of Brave and lets you comment on sites or articles, however, be aware that it could be a major privacy risk.
If so, that can include recording your log in information too. I had ran accross that idea as well. Until they get that straight, I would agree. However, I wonder if using Dissenter without logging into Gab would solve that? I am unsure. Until Gab clarifies or takes care of this, I suggest avoiding Dissenter. I recently reached out to one of the higher-ups at PrivacyTools. The gentleman I asked said his group did like Iridium but decided against endorsing it due to their concluding that Iridium is not updated very often which, unfortunately, results in security leaks being sporadically addressed.
I just tried using Iridium again and it did better on a Panopticlick test than during my first try. It is possible the first time I used Iridium may have had something to do with my computer. However, when choosing a new browser, the attention the hosting party or creator pays to updating and fixing problems should be taken into account. So far, Firefox and Brave have the best track record on updates and fixes out of the ones on this list.
Hi Sven! I must say that the information on your website has helped me enhance my online privacy. Yep, you can use different profiles for this. I tried the Iridium browser and it is very promising but is buggy. After downloading it, I tried to download extensions for it but they would not appear on my tool bar or my extension list despite Google saying they were downloaded.
IceCat is good but I get the impression it is not supported very well. Ungoogled Chromium is not at all secure and you might want to consider de-listing it. The closest people can get to Ungoogled Chromium is either Iridium or Brave which is excellent.
How can we trust mainstream companies? The cost of privacy is too high for convenience. I have had a landlord refuse to let rent because they used a shady site that had my information and said that I possibly had a criminal record which is not true. I looked over the information and and I figured where it came from Chrome and gmail had sold my information. I read their privacy docs and it does say that they share your information with authorized third parties.
Firefox is excellent. Despite being non-profit in theory, they do have a for profit arm. Until and unless the organizations or people behind browsers, like IceCat or Iridium, have sufficient structures and financing to keep up with innovations, their efforts while notable will be short lived. Aside from his experience, Brendan Eich obviously understood what I outline above which is why Brave is so successful. Worse tthan Iridium and Ungoogled Chromium.
One other thing I forgot to mention. I think Iridium is notable because it is relatively new and, in many ways, is still in development. In my view, Iridium could go the way of Brave since it has a albeit small group of developers behind it and another organization Open Source Business Alliance supporting their efforts. If you use the browser you might want to reconsider. How about kiwi browser for Android 1. Chromium based browser 2. Built in ad blocker 3. Built in night mode 4.
Instal chrome extension 5. Privacy focused. Youre description or criteria matches Iridium. However, be aware it is fairly young and buggy so your milage may vary. Brave also seems to match what you describe and would be a solid choice. Apologies, I missed the fact that you mentioned the Kiwi browser. I would suggest doing a deep-dive to see if it has good privacy protections.
I tested Kiwi against Panopticlick and it did well. But I had some questions about the settings such as the ad blocker. Kiwi is solely a mobile browser, whereas the list is geared mainly to listing browsers for desktop use. I have LeechBlock NG installed on it to block most websites, and from that I see that with every Bing search the default search engine in the browser, it first goes to kiwisearchservices. Not sure what the point of that is. In contrast, an older version of TorBrowser hid everything.
I am using the Tor browser. I wrote instructions for that here , but it seems with the latest Tor browser update, they have made it a lot more difficult to opt out of using the Tor network. Hi Sven, Thanks for the reply. Maybe you accidently posted the wrong link. The link above is for disabling WebRTC. Would you also have any details on what they have done to make it more difficult to opt out using the Tor network? Perhaps using an older version of the browser and disabling auto update if possible is a workaround?
However, it would be helfpul if we had a tutorial on how to disable the Tor network. Oops, you are correct. See the comments on the latest updates. No, I would not use an older version of Tor browser. Instead, just use modified Firefox. In case I am concerned about security, — you say Iridium offers regular updates and releases, but their updates are not so frequent.
Should I not prefer Brave since its updates are more frequent? This means it may be very inconvenient if you want to switch from it to another browser. One other thing, — TunnelBear have a browser free add on that VPNs just the browser itself, — how about that? I would not recommend anything from Avast, a company that has been in the news numerous times for abysmal privacy practices.
This caused Google, Mozilla and Opera to remove these extensions until Avast implemented new privacy protections. The lock icon on the web browser once meant that the connection between the user and the remote web server was authenticated, secured, encrypted. Unfortunately, that is no longer always true. As too, any anyone could with an [SSL interception proxy program or device] placed in the right logical position.
Where as most of you using these would have assumed that you have a secure end-to-end connection — at this point. Enabling this option can disrupt the work of certain browser applications, such as messengers, chats, cinemas, or games. This means you may see notifications from various websites even if your browser is hidden to tray or not launched. Enable this option to block browser Push API completely. It means that it can be used for tracking purposes just like cookies.
While the site files are cached, the ETag is sent every time your browser addresses this site. If the site has content embedded from another server e. In our few email conversation he had mentioned Googles posting of an ability to track users across different sites and devices. More data means better targeted ads and more revenue. Without Google Analytics, tracking performance of these campaigns would be difficult.
Nonetheless, there are still better options for privacy. Not so apparent as one needs to dig in the sites own TOS and PP policies — that just of visiting and your continued use of a site, you fully accept or consent to their policies towards your personal privacy…from any aspect connected to the site.
Hey sven Is puffin browser safe. I like the browser because its fast. Do you recommend this browser to use. Until I tried the Iriduim browser. So to anyone with a legacy laptop, or a cost friendly one, like my Lenovo, I would certainly recommend the Iridium! Although I cannot claim to be any more certain or should I say secure about my browser choice after scrolling a couple of hours and reading comments.
I tried it some years ago, but I was too lazy to learn new operating systems all over again. My knowledge in open source are mostly limited to the principles of the philosophy. I think Linux Ubuntu is a great place to start because it is user-friendly and widely supported as one of the most popular Linux distributions out there. I use modified Firefox. But in some cases I have to use others. Some online activities are not possible with modified Firefox, for example online management with the Government pay taxes, make requests,….
In my case, also with Firefox modified some websites are limited or not connect. But this is what there is… Regards! I could understand if I was logging in to a site to know I human. Then a pain if your just browsing already or having starting to on a site your hit with one. A site that has a commerce purpose and your real identity is know to your account there.
Then if you were logging in — your IP, device and browser fingerprints ties to the person. Tech, security, encryption, etc…. I would think that Google Analytics and Google ad trackers utilize various browser fingerprinting, identification, and tracking techniques techniques beyond what most of us could comprehend. OK, I think I get the picture. For android, other than firefox and bromite, I recommend Privacy Browser made by Stoutner. Its a great browser for your privacy.
For mobile : I still advise you to try and use Samsung Internet Browser, it has many features for privacy and total black theme and addon AdGuard possible among others adblockers. Or Try and use Firefox Preview instead of classic. Firefox Preview has many features. You recommend the Iridium browser. Please tell me how you can recommend the browser on the Mac does not remove installed extensions from the Chrome Web Store.
Try it yourself! And already a year for sure. Is it not correct to recommend only what you personally tested and specifically note which platform we are talking about. The browser itself is very good. Both canvas fingerprinting and session are suppose to be non-viewable of the visitor end in it all. A thought comes to mind in your case of how to possibly catch it in action of an image taken — if it happens in almost milliseconds.
Find a video screen recording program like ones used to capture installation steps , when a video screencapture is best used to explain adjacent and sequential steps for understand a walk through to someone doing something specific. Start up this program running before hand, and then do whatever you do when you see it happen on your screen.
I do agree not to allow yourself to be logged in to a web account you have anywhere while your surfing the web. When I hit the RF toolbar as to quickly fill them out — it drops down a larger menu than usual to pick which credentials to use on the site with a choice in it. This then brings up a lot of old google account credentials I still keep records of in my RoboForm vault.
I have to end up shutting my PC down and start over. From a users privacy standpoint on their privacy…. Scroll down in some images to see more — these images are of the search result for the term corndogs. Whenever I should open SwissCows search again and have entered a search term. All I see is image CC last one. Next I will remove the texts about the sponsor. I can turn off the Assistant to hid the Icon as well — which is how I run it mostly as being turned off.
You also could just turn off semantic map on the search page. No need to block using content blocker. Is that a more clear logical explanation to understand for you then. They SC could link to a supporters page and really show off them all in that way instead. So everyone of them sponsors are listed and not rotated as shown of in our face so to speak for our simple purpose in using SwissCows Search.
Then about the semantic map tiles with SwissCows, that would have to place a sort of cookie 1st-party on our device to be set to hold any memory, as I only keep 1st-party cookies for 15 minutes and switching it off it using the SC site never holds forever — it comes back. I have gone back to using MetaGer, which is also very fast, and a few test searches brought up the correct result at the top..
On the searches I have done in the last day or two, the engine seems to mostly use Bing and Scopia. Losing Scopia has not significantly changed the quality of the search results. Have a good weekend people, and stay safe Richard. And a good option for parents with kids is SwissCows , which filters out adult content. Nice article, thanks. I am on win7pro and will stay. I run Palemoon Portable and sandboxed off a flash drive.
The browser has great extensions, is updated regularly and for a portable is plenty fast. I use Proton VPN and its been plenty fast and stable as can be. I have tightened Palemoon down as much as i can in about:config and also the outgoing firewall. It had been out for ages then even, I got a refund and just bought back the firewall part of it I think. That it even had a database kept of the sites that were using or not fingerprints at that time when I visited them. Besides the dev was quite open to an email exchange.
Replaced with the Aomei backerupper for ransomware safeguarding purposes by backups, and the Shadow Defender as a quick n easy virtual environment defense to ill acting websites and installing softs for testing — like it never happened on the system at. Old AddOns work fine, and with 10 or 15 of them, startup on a small netbook takes max.
I love it since we found Pale Moon recommended by a young guy in a forum, for speeding up a little 2 x 1. NOT an old version like FF. My question is, Brave seems to have Google contained within it already? For example, when I wanted to change the theme, it led to the google shop. And of course, Google is on the list of search engines available. I changed the default to DDG, but still. I can of course delete it from the list, but so what? Am I correct on this? Your coming back here then sharing that knowledge.
Brave runs on Chromium engine which is the engine Google Chrome runs on. Google provides Chromium as an open source program which anyone can build and use. Since Chrome is the major version of Chromium, Brave uses themes and extensions from Chrome Web Store as a convenience for those used to Chrome. Brave recommends Qwant or DDG. According to this research, Brave is the most private browser—besting out Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Edge and Yandex—because it is the only web browser that did not use identifiers that allowed tracking of the IP address over time and did not share details of web pages visited to backend servers.
I would be interested on an indepth look at each of the settings to help people like me who is not fully savvy with techical jargon. I wonder, if using the principles found here on Restore Privacy and how to harden FF, how would Brave compare. The adjustments Sven points out are pretty good but again, that is only after making the adjustments. However, at the same time the company is making deals with Facebook, Twitter and others to whitelist their trackers and ads.
Chrome is a big target for hackers being the most popular browser in the world , and a webpage that will hack Chrome may also hack Brave. Those features will stop many hacking attempts. CON — Power hungry, uses much more battery power than other browsers: Per default Brave enables hardware acceleration which results in a much higher energy battery consumption than the most other web browsers.
CON — Download package is very large considering it as a browser Brave take on a lot of rolls besides just browsing so it is understandably a larger file. Might just be my configuration. Hey Sven… a question, With Iridium and Brave, I have recently noticed a flash of something across the screen while I surf. Best I can do to describe. Any ideas as to WTF that is??? Nothing like that happens when I surf the same sites on FF or Safari.
Hey George, sorry, but I have no idea on that. Well… turns out that this is not only Iridium and Brave based, but very site specific. There are only 2 US news sites and 1 Canadian news site where this weird stuff happens. LOL [My low-tech solution for this oddity! Screenshots are being possible if so please post to an off-site in a link given here? And then are you logged in to any account or trying to while this as witnessed? Could very well be, and if it be true, these websites do a very poor job in hiding it.
I have no other Mac device on this network. I never surf while logged into anything. Session Replay tracking and data-slurping?!?! Holy crap… what will they come up with next? As a fork of Brave, they do share some parts but they also have some divergence.
I will give this a shot for a while and see what I think. The nice thing about it is the comment section. It is not censured or filtered as you would find on Facebook, Twitter or anything else like that which really is a shot at the big tech. It is nice to have. The system would not update and for the first time, adding attachments to an email, my desktop froze. I had to reatart twice. Deleting Dissenter and going to a stable browser, I was able to email my stuff.
What would be the best privacy browser for iOS? To me DuckDuckGo Browser would be the most complete. It has the bonus of showing the website grade before and after the upgrade too. However, only Safari is able to use content blockers that you install from App Store. Other browsers that have adblockers use built-in AdBlock Plus extension usually. Content blockers do not read the websties you access—they just program Safari what to block—whereas extension reads what websites you access and filters appropriately.
This is why content blockers cannot keep tally of how much ads and trackers theyve blocked unlike extensions. Technically, content blocker is faster and more efficient than extension but on iOS, you probably wont notice that unlike on desktop.
On its own, Safari is not private enough because we cannot block only third party cookies unless content blocker is used. It has a lot of privacy features. It cannot be turn off in settings like other browsers. Like many, I started out aeons ago with I.
NB: elsewhere I mentioned how v. After reading all the reviews here thanks lots Sven! Go, and never found their search results as good as S. Or, change the search engine used in that search box. Maximum ease and convenience—is that it? I had no idea that any of these tools have suddenly become less secure. Also, System1 now owns a stake in Waterfox, so I will be updating this guide very soon with more info….
Sven, While using the latest versions of Firefox, I have found that when I check my fingerprint, it brings up the wrong platform Windows NT 10 , which I have never used. When I use older versions of Firefox or other browsers, this does not happen.
Does this suggest malware? Now the fingerprint is showing the correct platform using the current version of Firefox. Did Firefox recently change this feature? Which means it is actively helping censor the internet. So Stop using Mozilla products! Ads use about 5 seconds of mobile load time on average. Privacy is violated when large media sites host up to 70 trackers.
Over million phones and desktops run ad-blocking. Publishers cannot seamlessly monetize value added services. Advertisers are losing Advertisers lack good information on what they are paying for. Marketers are often fooled by bogus websites and bots that commit fraud. Targeting is poor, making users more likely to ignore ads.
Hi Sven: I discovered your website some time ago but have just recently taken a serious look at it. I notice that you have various pages with recommended browsers and search engines, vetted for their privacy and security features. The search engines and browsers recommended are not exactly the same on each page. I wonder if you could post some comment about this and give us some guidelines as to why a browser or search engine was added or removed, and how we can decide which page is the more current one.
Secondly, I have been trying out a number of browsers, and unfortunately, have saved bookmarks on each of them, all of which I would like to unify into one master bookmark file which I could organize and access from any browser. I do intend to use Firefox and one or two other safe and private browsers but at the moment still have a random collection of bookmarks on various browsers, and for that matter, a number of computers.
My question now is even though I know your site is specialized on privacy and security - do you have any recommendations as to to a simple, free, elegant, safe, intuitively usable, and whatever other useful criteria I am neglecting, program that will solve my problem? Thank you for any help! As for guides, yes, things change fast. I need your help! This is approx. Now I am afraid of them and have been cyber bullied for 2 years. I have been surveilled and listened to.
Thank you ahead of time. ALL behind a password protected vault area with your installing the program. Your able to print out logins credentials but, I think not your bookmarks. Though everything is behind your installed programs master password to start the program and inter the localized vault.
I still use a version before v8 and it has the tool-bar for your browser. Very good list! Though my preference is Firefox, one other browser that I think is notable is the Avast Secure Browser. Please consider reviewing it at some point as it would be interesting to read what you have to say about it. I would not recommend using anything from Avast.
They have been caught at least twice over the past few years selling user data that they collected through various products and apps. Thank you as I missed that article. Will you have a separate section of this site dedicated to reviewing mobile browsers? Thanks for the suggestion. I was here once a couple days ago, and found it difficult to find this site again. I was using Chrome on my other PC but it crashed, had to be reinstalled. I found your information on Firefox useful as for configuring the settings.
I now have Privacy Badger, https: everywhere and ublock origin. I find it strange Firefox is asking me to create an account for higher functionng. Very disconcerting. IceDragon-a suggested browser I got from another site, runs a command line when it installs I see 3 black screens command prompt coming on the screen and flashing off before I can see what they are.
I agree Vivaldi is not that secure! If by safe you mean secure, then most popular browsers are secure such as Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Try Edge as its more efficient than Chrome and Firefox. Two of the posts below make me wonder if Google is getting hit in the pockets more than they are letting on.
So they are in damage control. Hello , I recommend Brave browser because it runs very fast compared to the others, I also did a speed test of loading pages and was good champion, a big plus blocking the annoying ads that we still hit these days, he blocks any kind of advertisement. I was pleasantly surprised.
I agree with Brave. There are still some lingering questions in my mind but those are more curiosities vs anything else. I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. Yeah keep this out of any installation. As always with Microsoft. Edge does call home and send telemetry data, you need to do some research on how to turn it off. Performance wise so far, Edge is much better than Chrome, better than Firefox, and on par with Brave. If your work requires OneDrive, Office and other Microsoft services then go ahead use it because Edge integrates well with those.
Agreed it is pretty good. The only downside for me is it cannot install custom search engine, does not have reader mode, does not clear secret tabs after deleting browser history and it separates bookmarks for normal and secret tabs. Looks good too navbar at bottom. But no extensions yet. I let go of Firefox beta for it.
This is a fork of chromium based Lightning browser. Highly customizable and privacy enhanced. Can someone rank what is consider the top 4 browser regarding privacy. I know Tor is number one,is Firefox second or Brave. I am getting confused with so many choices. Depends what operating sistem you use. A browser built by a search engine will probably collect data. Few minutes ago after reading your your article, i downloaded 32bit Iridium from official site, installed in my windows 7, but it showed me only blank white page..
I think for most users disabling that is not a good idea because it will break too many websites. Thanks for the amazing suggestion again Sven. I am going to recommend NoScript and use it as mandatory addon. I had to also enable pressidium. This is a really amazing protection. Epic was the very first privacy-focused Chromium-based browser.
We do not collect any browsing information about video downloads or proxy usage, but it does go through our servers hence we mention it in our terms and conditions and some data such as bandwidth used and number of requests are tallied. Hello Alok. I did not claim Epic is tracking people.
I made money. Yeah, no. He and his team ultimately failed at their initiative.. Thanks for holding him responsible. Thank you both, Alok and Sven, for doing what you do. I found out about the Epic browser before bumping into RestorePrivacy.
I wanted to find a Chromium-based browser that stripped the data-collecting features and that it was easy to use. Other than a fully-fledged privacy-hardened Quantum Firefox, most Chromium-based alternatives did not provide a sense of that security I was looking for. Hi Sven, I liked reading about your knowledge, thank you for it.
There is another one off FDroid. Checks for trackers as well and not limited to Google Play. This F-droid app can help you to know which trackers and permissions are embedded in apps installed on your device. For exp, telemetry is still active, though switched off in my settings. Bitwarden has 2 trackers as well. Nice to reveal that Cliqz has no trackers and just a few permissions; Chromium based Kiwi browser and Tutanota are free of trackers, too.
Sven, it would be nice to discuss this on a separate topic. Info from 9th Dec. The mobile versions sound interesting though. I know. Security and mobiles: good joke. The other good news is, we got a new setup and will be releasing new builds more frequent again! Furthermore we are also working on mobile versions for Android and iOS which should be available in Sven, Is an iPad with Firefox a better choice than a Chromebook for privacy, or do you run into the same problems?
Well it all depends on your adversary and what data you are trying to hide from who. But Apple is generally considered to be more privacy-friendly than Google, so yes. Sven, Is there a way to make a Chromebook privacy secure? For example, can you put ungoogled Chromium on it? Are there any other ways? Same goes with Microsoft Surface Pro etc. If doing all the adjustments on Firefox as Sven says on this site, it may help make it better. My issue is whether or not the adjustments make yourself more private.
But they also admit they have servers everywhere as well. Maybe I am reading too much into it but anything dealing with Amazon, and, if I remember, Salesforce, is not a good thing. Amazon hosts so many sites that it is near impossible to avoid. Yes- it is another company comprised of an NSA arm that Snowden had mentioned.
However with the DoH I am wondering if there is a better browser. Would brave fit that bill or? Emerald Cactus Ventures LLC is designed Tenta -next generation browser that is designed from the ground up for unparalleled privacy and security with built-in encryption. Your your use is locked into one device on one platform for the subscription period. Any part of it open-source? Why limit yourself? This article is not correct.
Chrome secure? Ha — do your homework. Do your homework. Would this essentially diminish Firefox as private in your eyes? A centralized DNS can see and log everything. It looks like you can modify this in Firefox, or use a fork of Firefox Waterfox.
More reading: Centralised DoH is bad for privacy, in and beyond. What is your suggestion to the guinea pigs in America? This has me very worried. I especially have helped family and friends configure Firefox with your suggested about: config settings and the Decentraleyes add-on.
I am also reading conflicting information. Some U. I did read that article you linked as well. It seems there are some trade-offs. As with everything, just keep learning and taking small steps to achieve the best privacy and security setup for your unique needs. Since March , all American ISPs can collect your internet browsing and pass it on to third parties. Therefore everyone in the United States should be using a good VPN , unless of course you want to simply give all your internet history over to your internet provider and everyone they share data with.
Using a third-party DNS provider does not provide you with online anonymity as your IP address remains exposed to everyone online. Could be useful if you are interested in looking. Keep the KISS principle in mind, make the simple changes that can be made, like choosing over Iridium over Chrome, and you are already doing better. I have tested and looked into many issues and opinions of many induviduals regarding browsers, and I think the most pure and easy to use choice is Iridum, yet I do like IceCat, but I am on Windows.
Ungoogled Chromiums way of installing addons seems too in-depth for my use, but is avoiding the Web Store that important? I have also taken into account the following information sources, with a pinch of salt, they might be handy to some. Sven updates his articles often as the info here changes too as it becomes known to Sven. No expert here either — and browsers are not my strong subject.
I see it this way, the web connects to me and I connect to it. Then when online surfing through my browser s no matter of which one used. AdGurad for Windows is installed there doing all kinds of privacy stuff. Hope it helps you or someone. For those asking about the Comodo browsers: I often use Dragon.
I recently had troubles that caused me to have to update Dragon, then eventually regress to an older version, time-sensitive enough I was a little loose about what I would put up with. But I still had trepidation with a new clause I noticed in the license agreement, that I would have remembered previously:. Information which is collected for performance and functionality includes product installation and install status, install options, product configuration, product uninstallation, product update s and update status; operating system information such as type, language, platform and service pack; GUI language s used in Comodo products; product launch; and user consent to data collection.
Comodo Dragon Browser produces log files of information about certificate revocation checks which are transmitted to Comodo for analysis. No correlation of personally identifiable information is made or included in the log files. Additionally, based on user choices and consent at installation, in order to improve the performance, compatibility, and functionality of our products, Comodo may also collect other information such as: installed product name and version s ; information on any default browsers or browsers installed as well as extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins; activity, use, shutdowns, re-start events, and crash reports.
Thanks for the tip, Hard Sell. Like, hugely: I really was feeling bereft. I like the comments about avoiding Microsoft products. I have always felt that Microsoft was nothing more than a giant virus. Giant virus? Not even a single malware. As for privacy, I trust Microsoft more than Google. Google is no more for me, trying my best to completely left their ecosystem be it on computer or on mobile.
I do understand your conserns about the unique-ID but the data anonymized and necessary to build a good browser and today they announced that the unique-ID will be removed and replaced by a better system like you can read on the article below. In my opinion, Vivaldi is a unique browser that can be customized in a way that is not possible in other browser and the company behind Vivaldi is privacy-friendly and they do have an active dev team maybe not as large as Firefox, but Firefox has more money to spend because it is larger.
I had to uninstall it, but, I still have the same problem with the url, from Vivaldi. Do u have an antivirus program installed and firewall activated? Sometimes they are from India and other times from the USA. Wi-Fi connection information view Wi-Fi connections 2.

Irdium Browser: last updated on 15th April, based on Chromium Ungoogled Chromium: is on latest Chromium version but it took them two days Chromium Since Brave is the only actively maintained Chromium fork with speedy updates a few hours and better privacy protection. BRAVE — change my experience and give me some proof evidence this project is not kind of scam… The following is not only my experience, from what I found in their support forum many other users ran in similar problems resulting in privacy and security concerns.
And none of their mods were ever able to give clean and trustworthy explanation:. Portable version is not available, because the app installation needs to get its teeth so deep in your system it will take you a day to do a clean up and get rid of it completely while uninstalling. Bloated registry with more then a hundred!!!
Creating hardware profiles graphics 3D accelerator without letting you know. Fans of your 3D accelerator will turn your silent laptop into a heating turbine beast immediately after launching Brave — even with one empty tab. Turning HW acceleration OFF in the setting is the only option how to survive with this browser on laptop — but WHY does Brave need such a high computing performance from your 3D accelerator when there is not a reason for that?
Clean start.. Is the source available? Check out the following link, just to show I did not make this issue up by myself, this thread is just a couple of days old proving that issue is still there, for years! You can be paranoid or not, but these days when there are malware miners everywhere behaving the same why, one became suspicious quite quickly, not talking about making the browser a real pain to use….
Hi Sven Taylor, I just wanted to know is tenta for android a good secure browser. And for Windows is slimjet browser really good. Also I would like to know if the inbuilt vpn on slimjet is free. Slimjet also appears outdated. But to me it looks like his dream is over and he just keep the project going for unknown reason. The support is quite bad and who knows whats behind it….
What would be the best browser for older ipad that cannot update to higher ios versions. For instance mine only updates to ios 9. Which means it now refuses to install Firefox from the appstore. Wow, another way for Apple to force people to buy new products. I am using the canary version which updates nightly, and am enjoying it tremendously. This will be worth a review when it goes gold.
