Major Updates to Ghostery Privacy Browser for Android and iOS

September 19, 2018By Ghostery Team

Hey Ghostery fans,

We recently revamped our mobile browser for Android and iOS! Ghostery Privacy Browser now provides dramatically faster browsing and privacy protection with built-in tracker- and ad-blocking.

Equipped with the largest tracker database out there and comprehensive features that enhance user privacy for mobile browsing, Ghostery Privacy Browser integrates the powerful ad blocking and tracker protection of the Ghostery 8 control panel with a state-of-the-art mobile browser developed by our parent company, Cliqz.

If you haven’t already, you can download or update the Android app here and the iOS app here.

What’s new?

Updated UX & UI
We’ve turned our old app into a sleek, new browser with customizable features and an updated homepage. Bookmark top sites, change your background, and manage new tabs – our updated UI makes browsing comfortable.

Built-in Ad Blocker
Remove intrusive ads and clutter for a cleaner browsing experience.

Ghost Search
Our built-in private search, powered by Cliqz, saves you time and data. Additionally, it does not track users and provides instant result cards to get you where you want to go fast.

Ghost Mode
In Ghost mode, users can protect their privacy by preventing the websites they visit from being recorded in their browser history.

Phishing protection
Protect yourself from fraudulent websites that want to steal your passwords and account information.

Start Tab
Start Tab provides direct links to your most visited websites and to the latest news from respected and trustworthy media outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Reuters, AP, BBC and The Guardian.

Enhanced privacy features for Android
Anonymize your personal data with Anti-Tracking and use our new Smart Blocking feature that optimizes page performance by automatically blocking and unblocking problem trackers as you browse.

Taking privacy protection and speed to the next level

First, the Ghostery Privacy Browser removes page clutter: websites load faster when ads and trackers are removed, providing savings in your mobile data and battery usage. Second, your privacy is protected while you browse by blocking trackers from accessing your personal data and providing enhanced protection against phishing attempts. Finally, Ghostery Privacy Browser doesn’t store any personally identifiable information and anonymizes user data, meaning users’ search queries remain completely private.

Happy browsing!
