What advantages does Ghostery offer when compared to other mobile browsers?

The Ghostery Private Browser contains an integrated quick search that allows you to go directly to your destination without any detours. In addition, we do not collect any personal data unlike other search engines. Thus, by using Ghostery you are protecting your online privacy.

We also provide you with our anti-tracking technology which helps to keep your data safe. This technology avoids your data being tracked by third party trackers. This is done by altering strings which are unique to your browser. It protects you from usual tracking methods like canvas fingerprinting.

What distinguishes the Ghostery Private Browser from other browsers?

The Ghostery Private Browser is significantly more private than its competitors. This is because, in addition to hosting the typical features of a browser, our browser has Ghostery’s signature privacy protection technologies baked into it.

Like many browsers, we offer a private browsing mode (Ghost mode) and a private search engine. On top of that, Ghostery Private Browser employs technology that actively shields your data from trackers. Those two signature technologies of Ghostery are known as (1) tracker-blocking, which stops trackers from being planted on the sites you visit, and (2) anti-tracking, our supplemental capability, which anonymizes your personally identifiable information should any trackers get through.

What is Ghost Tab?

While browsing in Ghost Tab, Ghostery does not store the following data on your device:

  • History: Visited pages will not be saved to the computer’s history and thus cannot be found via the library or the history results in the search.
  • Cookies: Cookies store various information, such as page settings, logins, and data that is used for plugins like Adobe Flash Player.
  • Form fields and search box entries: Text entered into text boxes or search functions on websites is forgotten instantly.
  • Passwords: Newly entered passwords will not be remembered.
  • Download list: You can download and save files just like in normal browsing mode. However, files downloaded in Ghost Tab will not show in the downloads menu.
  • Temporary data: Temporary data and data required for offline usage cannot be saved in Ghost Tab.

What is HTTPS-Only Mode?

HTTPS-Only Mode is an advanced privacy setting offered in Ghostery Private Browser. Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), the fundamental protocol for how browsers and websites communicate, is unprotected often susceptible to unwanted surveillance and possibly manipulation. HTTPS-Only Mode ensures that all communications made with the Ghostery Browsers are done so with HTTP over TLS (HTTPS), a secure and encrypted form of communication that is a much safer protocol.

Why is Ghosty wearing a mask?

If your Ghosty is wearing a mask, it means that you are in a Ghost Tab.  This means that there will be no cookies or browser history saved after you close the session.
