Mozilla Launches ‘Firefox Focus’ Private Browser for iOS
Mozilla has just announced the launch of a new ‘Firefox Focus’ browser for iPhone and iPad, which is a free and easy to use privacy browser, with the ability to automatically block a wide range of online trackers. You can quickly erase your history, passwords and cookies, so you won’t get followed by things like unwanted ads. “Browse like no one’s watching — from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it.”
“For the times when you don’t want to leave a record on your phone. You may be looking for information that in certain situations is sensitive – searches for engagement rings, flights to Las Vegas or expensive cigars, for example. And sometimes you just want a super simple, super fast Web experience – no tabs, no menus, no pop-ups.
Firefox Focus gives you just that”.
The browser is set by default to block many of the trackers that follow you around the web, which means you don’t need to change privacy or cookie settings. And since Firefox Focus blocks these trackers automatically, it is likely you’ll also notice a performance boost on the many sites that track your behavior.
For those websites that don’t work because they are dependent on tracking and prompt you to enable cookies, Firefox Focus makes it easy to open your current site in either Firefox or Safari. Best of all, users can also take advantage of this Tracking Protection on Safari for iOS.
