Android & iOS browsers with built-in ad blocking

Android & iOS browsers with built-in ad blocking


In terms of usage, Google Chome is ranked as the most downloaded and used web browser for desktop and mobile devices of all time.

Most if not all Android devices have Chrome pre-installed since Google is the largest contributor to the Android operating system.

Chrome is fast for web browsing but in terms of user privacy, this isn’t the mobile browser that respects that at all since it’s owned by Google which is a company that makes most of its revenue from selling ad space, and you know, Big brother Google knows best about you by tracking the searches you perform online.

It is not just Google who tracks your every move, almost any website including social media websites have analytical scripts that inform website owners of the location of each visitor, device used to navigate, IP address, Internet service provider, time spent on each page of the website, and more…(some even track mouse movement and record it as a video).

I’ve seen an ad that was following me wherever I go online for almost a month until I cleared my browser history, It was about a wireless mouse that I added to cart on an online store.

To counter all this, We’ll be sharing with you a group of mobile browsers with built-in ad blocking that truly respect your privacy by removing trackers and advertisements effectively.
