The Ghostery Privacy Browser for Blackphone

Combining First-Class Utility With a Foundation of Privacy

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 12, 2015) - Ghostery, the leading provider of digital transparency and privacy, announced today that its highly-rated privacy browser is available in the Silent Circle's Silent Store for Blackphone.

Ghostery has provided best-in-class digital privacy and transparency for mobile devices since 2011. In 2014 Silent Circle created Blackphone -- the world's first private-by-default smartphone. Early this year saw the launch of the Silent Store, which features curated apps reviewed by Silent Circle for privacy and security practices. Each app's requested permissions are listed explicitly, so that users can download with confidence while exploring new apps and services. 

The Ghostery Privacy Browser combines the utility of a fully functional mobile browser with the same privacy features Ghostery provides with its desktop browser plugin. In addition to features and functionality common to leading mobile browsers, the Ghostery Privacy Browser delivers advanced privacy 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. Ghostery gathers insight about data collection activity, website performance, and security issues as people browse. This information remains anonymous and is never used to track or target a user.

Users of the Blackphone's PrivatOS operating system and communication tools now have access to the most private and informative mobile web browser. The Ghostery Privacy Browser will be available in the Silent Store on March, 12th.

"As part of providing a secure mobile experience it is important to provide a secure browsing experience. Ghostery provides Silent Circle's Blackphone customers a means to have a private and transparent browsing solution," said Daniel Ford, D.Sc., Chief Security Officer of Silent Circle.
