Android users that are concerned their privacy is being infringed by advertisers and companies tracking their every move while surfing the Internet from their mobile devices. May be interested in a new Android browser that has been made available this week called the Android Ghostery Privacy Browser.
The Android Ghostery browser has been available for years on desktop systems but now brings the same peace of mind and tracking functionality to Android mobile devices. Watch the video after the jump to learn more.
Previously Ghostery has been offered as a plugin that could be installed in browsers, however today Android Ghostery has launched as a standalone browser for the Android operating system. The developers of Android Ghostery explain why they have created the new mobile browser:
“While you browse, companies are tracking what you read, what you buy, what you click, and what you share. Android Ghostery detects scripts from Facebook, Google, and hundreds of other ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers – all companies interested in your activity. You can learn more about these data collection companies and block them from tracking your activity as you browse.
The Ghostery Privacy Browser is a full-featured web browser with functionality from our popular desktop tool built in. It’s easy to configure and simple to use, allowing you to browse the mobile web with quick load times and exceptional privacy.
The Android Ghostery Privacy Browser is free – we’re supported only by our opt-in Ghostrank feature. If you choose, you can share information with us about the trackers you encounter and where you find them. We take this information – which is carefully curated and anonymized so it cannot be used to track users – and package it into reports that let site owners, brands, and advertising technology firms audit their performance and their relationship with each other. “
