With Privafox, we have taken private browsing a step further

You can download endless add-ons and plugins for your browser to make it more private, and leave fewer footprints online – but why not take the leap and download a full privacy-enhanced browser?  A browser that defaults to private browsing mode and is enhanced with privacy-protecting features.

Privafox private browsing on desktop with Privafox

With Privafox, your browser set to achieve the best possible privacy by default, and there is no telemetry or unknown add-ons talking to central servers and third parties – it is truly private browsing, and it can easily be installed on your device.

If you aren’t sure why a full private browser is better than simply using add-on and plugins in your own browser, here is a list of Privafox features.

Get rid of your browser history automatically

Privafox doesn’t leave your browser history in the browser. By default and automatically, Privafox deletes your history and remove traces of your online behaviour from the sites that you have been browsing. Read more about browser history

Protect your bookmarks with a password

With Privafox you can protect your browser with a master password. It will prevent unauthorised access to your personal information.  To stop you from inadvertently disclosing your favourite websites, Privafox browser bookmarks are protected by your personal master password – this is a unique feature available only in Privafox.

Browse in private without leaving cookies

Privafox gives you control of all cookies with its built-in Cookiecontrol. This gives you a detailed and unique view of the cookies stored in your browser. By default, all third party cookies are blocked, but you can easily allow a website use specific cookies as needed, since not all sites will work as intended when cookies are disallowed.

Protect yourself from tracking and block ads

Privafox has built-in tracking control. With Privacontrol, you can control which sites and third parties you want to allow to run tracking scripts in your browser. You can block everything or whitelist the ones you use most and trust. Privafox uses the combination of the built-in Cookiecontroller plus Privacontrol to keep your browsing private.

Use a private search engine by default

Privafox has findx, our private search engine, as the built-in search engine. findx is the default choice for a private search engine, and together with Privafox it continues to improve your online privacy. Read more about using a private search engine in your browser

Does Privafox let me browse anonymously?

It is very important for us to underline that Privafox is not a Darknet browser like Tor, and it doesn’t have a goal of anonymising internet activity.  You can use Privafox when you want to browse the internet in private and protect yourself from the so-called surveillance capitalism, and prevent your personal data from being traded in online data auctions.

Privafox is easy to install as your default browser, and you don’t have to be an IT expert to adjust your privacy settings – they all default to a strong level of privacy.
