Review Ghostery Privacy Browser

Brandon Girod
9.2Excellent
Blocks all trackers from any websites, has a trackers whitelist, clean design, faster performace
Sometimes tabs I've swiped away come back
Ghostery Privacy Browser for Android is another privacy browser that has come onto the scene in the wake of all the NSA news. Most of us don’t want to have our internet history accessed through a backdoor, and we don’t want all of our browsing habits to be analyzed and sold to third party companies just to have more advertisements we already ignore thrown into our faces.
That’s where privacy browsers come in. Ghostery does something a bit unique, in that it automatically blocks all of the trackers a website might use to track you. You can see how many trackers the browser has blocked by looking at the ghost icon in the upper right corner. Some sites might only use a few, but you’ll probably be surprised to see just how many trackers are being blocked at just one website.
Other important features include an auto-update feature for the list of trackers. As long as this is enable, your phone should be safe from being tracked online. There is also a whitelist that you can place trackers on if you don’t mind them inquiring about your data. The default search engine is Duck Duck Go, for those trying to get away from Chrome and IE, but you can change it to whatever you want. The ability to block cookies and pop-ups also exists.
Ghostery Privacy Browser is my new favorite browser, and not just because of the privacy settings. I also found it to be an overall faster and smoother experiences than alternative browsers, and I really enjoy how clean the interface is. I can’t recommend this browser enough.
