Description

The only way to prevent data from being abused is to prevent it from being collected in the first place. Privacy Browser has two primary goals.

1. Minimize the data that is sent to the internet.

2. Minimize the data that is stored on the device.

Most browsers silently give websites massive amounts of information that allows them to track you and compromise your privacy. Websites and ad networks use technologies like JavaScript, cookies, DOM storage, user agents, and many other things to uniquely identify each user and track them between visits and across the web.

In contrast, privacy sensitive features are disabled by default in Privacy Browser. If one of these technologies is required for a website to function correctly, the user may choose to turn it on for just that visit. Or, they can use domain settings to automatically turn on certain features when entering a specific website and turn them off again when leaving.

Privacy Browser currently uses Android’s built-in WebView to render web pages. As such, it works best when the latest version of WebView is installed (see https://www.stoutner.com/privacy-browser/common-settings/webview/). In the 4.x series, Privacy Browser will switch to a forked version of Android’s WebView called Privacy WebView that will allow for advanced privacy features.

Warning: Android KitKat (version 4.4.x, API 19) ships an older version of OpenSSL, which is susceptible to MITM (Man In The Middle) attacks when browsing websites that use outdated protocols and cipher suites. More information about this issue is available at https://www.stoutner.com/kitkat-security-problems/.

What's new

• Redesign file access to work with scoped storage and the Storage Access Framework. This allows the target API to be bumped to 30 and removes the need for the dangerous READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE and WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permissions. Unfortunately, due to a bug in Android’s WebView, this also temporarily removes the ability to save a web archive.
• Update About > Permissions.
• Improve the descriptiveness of the save URL snackbar.
• Add Metager to the list of search engines.
• Fix I2P detection.
