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.

4 Best Mobile App Development Tools

230 Views

There are several app building platforms that develop apps without digging a hole in the customer’s pocket. It is important to choose the right platform for building a mobile app. We’ve put together top five mobile app development tools that are popular in the industry.

1. Xamarin

Xamarin is the preferred choice for native applications. Xamarin reuses business logic layers and data access across platforms. This can be beneficial when functions such as large amounts of local data, offline mode, and image recognition need to be implemented. Being built on the C# programming language, it runs on the .NET common language infrastructure. This tool is widely used to build apps for iOS, Windows, and Android platforms. Xamarin is a mono framework that enables communication with the API of mobile devices. It also allows mobile application developers create scalable and robust applications with the help of its QA and testing features.

One of the greatest advantages of Xamarin is that it tends to result in fewer bugs and provides faster time to market. Lesser codes means fewer bugs and a single test can validate the code of both the platforms.

Xamarin believes in collaboration and so, it gives an opportunity to the developers to select from a host of free and paid components. Xamarin Component Store includes UI controls, third party web services, and cross-platform libraries. Backends like Microsoft Azure, Salesforce, and others can be integrated easily with Xamarin. With so many crowns, Xamarin is the king of cross platform app development.

2. Appcelerator

Usually, Appcelerator “accelerates” the app development process as it allows the developers to create apps with fewer lines of code. It supports iOS, Android, Windows, and browser-based HTML5 applications. Whether one needs to develop a native app or a cross-platform application, Appcelerator can be the right choice. It mainly helps the development when application reacts with a web service.

What makes Appcelerator popular is that it is not just based on the concept of “write once, run everywhere.” It has several platform specific API’s, features, and user interface. As its code is platform targeted, it ensures enhanced performance. Without learning coding of Android and iOS platforms individually, developers can develop reliable mobile applications.

Appcelerator’s Titanium uses JavaScript and XML to build native and hybrid mobile applications. It is also useful in building mobile web apps. It has a huge community of developers and they gather at the Appcelerator Open Mobile Marketplace where developers and users can buy, sell, and share templates, modules, and extensions.

3. PhoneGap

PhoneGap falls into the category of cross-platform app development. One of the major benefits of PhoneGap is that it can be used for creating a single app that works on all mobile devices. It works on HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

The framework is integrated with several libraries to improve the functionality and save a lot of time. Being a flexible tool, it enables development of various mobile applications with lesser efforts. Developers can extend the functionality of the application with the help of plug-in architecture.

Applications developed using PhoneGap work uniformly well over multiple platforms rendering the same look and feel. Moreover, the powerful backend system increases the speed of development of mobile apps. Another amazing feature of the tool is that it taps into the hardware of the device such as the camera, accelerometer, geo-location, etc.

PhoneGap has an Open Source License, so it is a free framework for mobile app development. It has a large community of developers for assembling new codes and modules to improve the quality of the apps built. It is a robust tool for building apps without possessing any special skill set or expertise.

3. Sencha

Sencha Touch is an MVC-based JavaScript framework to build mobile apps. One of the unique features of a mobile app is the ability to use it through the touch of fingertips rather than the mouse or keys. Sencha Touch offers a high level of responsiveness for your application and this helps to improve the customer satisfaction. Compatible with all the latest versions of Android, iOS, and Blackberry, it is used for creating easy-to-navigate apps.

Developers can code in HTML5 format when they use Sencha for mobile app development. After code is created or converted to HTML5, it becomes easier to use them on Android as well as on iOS. Code can be translated with the help of another tool like PhoneGap.

Customers who want their apps faster should opt for Sencha. It is an effective tool for developing native apps without wasting any time. It comes with high-performance UI widgets for forms, menus, lists, and toolbars. This next generation tool has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to use the app.

4. Ionic

Ionic is HTML5 mobile app development framework that is widely used for creating hybrid mobile applications. Being a complete open-source SDK, it helps to build hybrid mobile apps using web technologies like CSS, HTML5, and SASS.

It offers great tools and services to build highly interactive apps. Ionic comes with several default CSS components and JavaScript components for building mobile apps. As it is built on top of the AngularJS framework, it becomes easier to build applications.
