Ghostery Privacy Browser offers a private, fast, tracker- and ad-free mobile browsing experience. Equipped with comprehensive features that enhance user privacy for mobile browsing, the Ghostery Privacy Browser integrates the powerful ad blocking and tracker protection of the Ghostery 8 control panel with improved browser functionalities.

Key features:

See who is tracking your data on the websites you visit and choose to block or unblock these trackers.

The browser removes intrusive ads and clutter, resulting in a cleaner and ultimately faster browsing experience.

Save on time and data usage with our built-in private search, powered by Cliqz, that suggests three dynamic result cards (websites or other content) as you type in the address bar – providing smarter navigational options to get users to their destination with just one click. Cliqz does not store any personally identifiable information and works with sophisticated anonymization techniques, meaning users’ search queries remain completely private.

Ghost mode offers further privacy protection by preventing the websites you visit from appearing in your browser history.

Protect yourself from fraudulent websites that want to steal your passwords and account information with a built-in security feature that detects up to four times more phishing attempts than Google Safe Browsing and works considerably faster, uncovering phishing sites within an hour.

When you open a new tab, Ghostery Privacy Browser provides your most visited websites and curated news from respected and trustworthy media outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Reuters, AP, BBC and The Guardian.

Open links in a new tab? Nope

This is almost a fantastic browser. Instead it's so infuriating I am constantly on the verge of just deleting it. Why the hell can't I long-press a link and be given the explicit option of opening it in a new tab or a new background tab? Safari can do it. Firefox can do it. DuckDuckGo can do it. Brave can open in a new tab plus provides an option to open in a private tab. I refuse to use Chrome because of privacy concerns and plenty of acceptable alternatives but I bet it can do it too. This is basic functionality and if there is an option to enable this in settings I can't find it.

Ghostery simply provides an option to "open" which is no different than tapping the link rendering it superfluous and could be removed with no loss of functionality for the user. To make matters worse, this browser does actually open links in new tabs, but in a seemingly random and opaque manner. I frequently end up shocked to discover numerous tabs have been opened while clicking links during the course of normal browsing without me being aware of it.

This unexpected and bizarre behavior plus the apparent lack of an option to intentionally open links in a new tab almost ruins what is otherwise a great browser.

....I just installed the “new” Ghostery and it seems to have deleted ALL of the my bookmark folders! Over the years of using this app, I’ve created different folders within the app for the different catagories of bookmarks I’ve saved. For example, when saving a bookmark/favorite webpage that deals with “iPhones”, I create a folder called “Apple” and save all Apple related bookmarks to that folder and so on. Unfortunately, after installing this new version of Ghostery, the app deleted all of my bookmark folders and dumped all my bookmarks together under the “favorites” tab and now my bookmarks are no longer organized the way they use to be! What a mess!! Furthermore the ability to create new bookmark folders has been removed from the app entirely! AAARGH!!! The excellent minimalistic design of the previous version of Ghostery has been replaced by this new over the top version which is riddled with painfully bright colors and features I never wanted. Why the developers of this app thought it was a good idea to remove the bookmark folder feature is beyond me. I will not be updating this app on the rest of my iOS devices.👎👎😢

1 of the best anti-track/privacy keepers

as a loyal Ghostery user for years, i personally believe this to be 1 of the best privacy/anti-tracker instruments out there. it help make allowing data u want thru the customizable plethora of anti-track filters as it is to block what u don’t.
i firmly believe privacy is an innate right & that we should have control over what info we want to share w/ the world & ppl around us. not that the vast majority of ppl need to be totally anonymous while webbing for work or play, just that our personal & private lives on the web shouldn’t be bought & sold as a commodity either!
this app helps stop the all the unnecessary data miners & corporate trackers that buy & sell ur info. w/o u even knowing, work that much harder to get it.
paired w/ DuckDuckGo search engine (a selectable option in settings) it can help keep ur info online more secure & private.
