You must be aware that companies and third parties are using our data without consent. That is not only unethical but illegal. But these companies are so powerful that we cannot do anything about it – no, we can. We can completely secure our data and our browsing habits and interests.

Remarkably the process is quite simple. All you have to do is download a secure browser app. A VPN app encrypts your data, your IP and all your internet surfing activities. You can completely hide your digital footprint.

There are dozens of companies that are offering secure browsing options and if you are concerned about them, you should take a look immediately. For this can be important. Your data is sacred,

it is private, and no one has the right to it and certainly not the big companies. Data gathering is as good as spy. Let’s stop this menace once and for all.

If you have some recommendations about these apps, do not hesitate to let us know in the comment section or through our contact page. Thanks to Steve Clarke from No Hassle Mobile Phones for recommending Brave Browser to us, we are currently reviewing the browser and will be posting a full review soon.

Until then, you can see what we have got here. We searched and researched meticulously to bring you the best of the best. And believe me, it was no easy task. Here are five most secure browsers for Android. Enjoy.

  1. Firefox Focus

The Focus browser is another masterpiece by Mozilla – a giant browser company. Like all the other browsers of the company, it comes filled with features and options.

Focus is a standard private browser application. It is simple but it does the job perfectly. It erases all your data from your internet sessions the moment you close your browser.

In case you have a session open the browser will send you a notification alerting you to the fact. This means that you will completely aware of any activity and when handing over your phone to someone, you can close it.

  1. InBrowser

InBrowser is in a perpetual state of incognito mode. It has a cloaking mechanism that won’t even recognize your device. With further settings, the browser won’t be able to tell whether you are using a mobile or not, thus mobile sites won’t be shown and you will get a full site.

Upon exiting the app, everything including your data, logins, browsing history will be cleared. And the app would store nothing. It would be a clean slate when you open the browser next time.

  1. Firefox for Android

Firefox browser for Android might not be a privacy browser strictly speaking, but it is still worthy of being included in this list. It is a solid browser that is feature packed and with some great settings for privacy.

Using some add-ons you can make your Android browser completely secure. The reason we recommend this browser is because it is wholesome. With few tweaks, you get airtight privacy and one of the best browsers, if not the best, in the world.

The reason we included Firefox for Android is that it is an all-purpose browser. Whilst it is highly recommended that you use it for your ‘regular’ browsing, why not use the same thing for private browsing as well? – it is doubly convenient.

  1. Frost Incognito Browser

The Frost Incognito Browser is quick, swift and to the point. It is completely free and all it does is that it deletes your cookies, surfing activity, and browsing history simultaneously as you use the internet.

Frost Incognito Browser is always in incognito mode. It also comes with a default app for ad blocking. You can browse with multiple tabs and switch between them. Another plus for incognito mode is that you can open separate activities,

Even private from each other. For example, if you are surfing two websites, no technology will be able to track even your fake IP to those two websites. Incognito mode was invented so that multiple people can use the same browser and not walk over each other’s bookmarks and saved passwords.

  1. Privacy Browser

Privacy Browser is a great app, it says right there in the name that it focuses on privacy. It hides your data and history while you are browsing. The company says they do not store or keep any of your data.

The Privacy Browser supports TOR as well. It automatically blocks all your ads. Although you are given extensive preference and customization options, the default settings are quite strong and focused on privacy.

You can find the browser app on Google Play, XDA Labs, Amazon Appstore, and F-Droid. Privacy browser has some paid add-ons but other than that it is completely free. Lightning fast, secure and free.
