With the premium browser Lumen, you can finally enjoy the Internet without its dark sides and with a good, secure feeling.
THE PREMIUM BROWSER LUMEN AT A GLANCE:
- Provides an extra protection layer through system-wide VPN
- Blocks creepy data collectors lurking in the dark (cookies, etc.)
- Removes annoying ads and pop-ups
- Protects against identity theft and hackers
- Saves valuable data volume and time
- No hidden business model, no queasy feeling
The system-wide VPN feature is enabled for all apps on your iPhone. It actively protects you from hackers, hides your location and additionally secures you in public Wi-Fi networks.
Lumen keeps data collectors at bay and effectively protects your privacy and identity. It shows you which companies tried to collect your private information and warns you immediately when scam websites want to steal your data or identity.
The built-in ad-blocker technology fends off annoying ads and pop-ups.
Blocking data collectors and ads saves you precious time and data volume as pages load faster. On average, each blocked data collector and each blocked ad accelerates the loading time of a website by 2.5%.
A FAIR DEAL

You can test all premium features for 7 days, also free of charge. Afterwards, you can choose between three monthly subscriptions: “Basic”, “VPN”, and “Basic + VPN”.

Ratings and Reviews
Cool, with one quirk
This browser functions exactly like Safari, which to my eyes is a great thing, yet it adds the features of added security and a built-in VPN service. The one quirk I’d prefer to be addressed, however, is that whenever I activate the VPN and set the location to the USA, Google searches I perform first challenge me with an “I’m not a robot” task, and then it’ll turn up results in what I believe to be Arabic (although I’m not familiar with Middle Eastern languages and may be wrong about the particular language), instead of my preferred language, which is English. I would be content if this only happened once, or even once in a while, but it happens every time I put something in the search bar, which gets a bit annoying.
This is easily resolved by scrolling to the bottom of any search page and tapping the “English” button. Apparently, this is a problem with Google and not with Lumen itself. All in all, great browser!
Developer Response ,
Hi LooshBuddy, Thanks for your detailed feedback. We double checked that and it seems to be a general problem with VPN services and Google.
You can test that you actually got an US IP address on your device wit this tool for example: https://www.maxmind.com/en/locate-my-ip-address
In the Google database, this VPN IP is associated with UAE, so Google thinks you are located on UAE. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about it. At the end of the search results page you can tell Google the language you want your results in. Please feel free to contact us again if you have more feedback or questions for us. Greetings, your Lumen Team
Good look but...
I liked the look but I am not paying for this service as it is not worth it.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for reaching out to us.
Of course this is a valid point. In fact, it is a matter of priorities.
Our focus is privacy, so we integrated anti-tracking, anti-phishing and a VPN service. With that combination your data is save, but you pay a small amount of money for that. With free services, you normally 'pay' with your data. If you consider that as worthy, it is your choice, but we think it is worthy to keep the data private for the users.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have more feedback or questions for us.
All the best, Your Lumen Team

Developer Response ,
Thank you for contacting us and for your interest in Lumen.
It's true that the app is currently only available for iOS and optimized for iPhone.
The version for Android is in the works and our developers are doing everything they can to make it available soon.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the iPhone version or would like to give us general feedback. We always welcome constructive feedback and suggestions on how we can improve Lumen. Thanks, your Lumen Team
