Ghostery Unveils New Privacy Browser for Android Users

Bringing Advanced Levels of Privacy to Mobile Users

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 03, 2014) - Ghostery, a leader in digital privacy and transparency, today announced a new mobile web browser for privacy-conscious consumers using Android devices.

Best known for its free browser plug-in, Ghostery is bringing these same privacy features to mobile users. The Ghostery Privacy Browser is able to detect and block nearly 2,000 data collection tools from a variety of digital marketing companies and ad networks that track consumers online.

Delivering the same functionality as other popular browsers, this new mobile application advances consumer privacy with several key features such as:

  • Displays a list of trackers and the ability for individuals to block various digital tools and social widgets
  • Blocking new trackers by default
  • Whitelist regularly used sites for faster performance

The Ghostery Privacy Browser is free. Users can opt-in to Ghostrank®, which allows consumers to anonymously share information with Ghostery about their online experience. The mobile browser gathers insight about data collection activity, website performance, and security issues as people go online. This information remains anonymous and represents browsing across more than 26 million websites from users all over the world.

Download the Ghostery Privacy Browser for Android from Google Play or Amazon app stores.
