Better is a privacy tool for Safari that protects you from trackers and privacy-eroding ads on the web.
Make your web experience safer, lighter, and faster in Safari on iPhone and iPad.
How is Better different?
• Blocks tracking scripts, tracking pixels, and behavioural advertising.
• Uses our unique, hand-curated, and open tracker database based on our own web crawls. Browse the encyclopaedia-like tracker entries on our web site if you fancy learning more.
• We identify and block the most prevalent trackers. This makes Better’s block list lightweight and effective.
• We base our blocking decisions on the principles of the Ethical Design Manifesto (https://ind.ie/ethical-design).
• Developed and curated by Ind.ie – that’s Laura and Aral – a tiny two-person-and-one-husky not-for-profit striving for social justice in the digital age.
• Open, transparent, and free as in freedom.
• Improves the readability of popular web sites.
• Spotlights the worst offenders… Did you know that the worst site we found on the web had 172 trackers? Better blocks them all and makes that site 4× lighter and 15.8× faster!
• Blocks blocker blockers (try saying that quickly a few times!) Whenever we can, we try to protect you from sites that try to put you at risk by forcing you to turn off your privacy tools.
• Do Not Block list enables you to turn Better off for sites that don’t play well with Better. Easily contact us about those sites so we can fix the experience for everyone.

Beoordelingen en recensies
Je beste bescherming tegen Surveillance Capitalism
Waar je ook gaat op het web, er zijn altijd commerciële partijen die ongemerkt meekijken naar wat je zoal doet. Wat je zoekt, wat je aanklikt, om zo profiel van je op te bouwen.
Deze app beschermt jou tegen het “surveillance capitalism” - bedrijven wiens enige doel is mensen te bespieden om er geld aan te verdienen.
Ik steun de makers van deze app in zijn strijd voor de rechten en vrijheden van burgers in een digitale wereld en tegen de commerciële uitbuiting door de tech- en advertentie bedrijven.
Reactie van ontwikkelaar ,
Bedankt, @catmoos! 💙
I never open it but it rocks
The one app that I never open, always use and absolutely love! Highly recommended. Less issues with websites breaking than with other content blockers.
Wie kan er nu beter iets doen tegen tracking dan Aral Balkan, de voorvechter van privacy en ageerder tegen het idee dat de gebruiker het product is wiens profiel wordt doorverkocht door allerlei gratis apps. Daarom zonder nadenken deze app gekocht en geïnstalleerd op iPad en iPhone. Ik weet me nu beschermd tegen allerlei louche trackers!
