3 great privacy-focused web browsers

1. Tor

Tor is one of the most notable privacy-focused web browsers out there today. The web browser is built on a collection of hidden relay servers. Basically, the way it keeps your information private is through bouncing your connection between various distributed nodes. This means that your connection will be completely private.

However, it is important to note that this is a true privacy-focused web browser, and it will not protect you from malware or viruses. The only negative aspect of this web browser is that it can slow down your browsing. We’re not saying you have something to hide… but if you want to be completely anonymous when surfing the internet, then Tor is the best on the market.

2. Brave

Brave is great for anyone who wants a privacy-focused web browser that’s also quick. The problem with many other web browsers is that they can be slow in order to operate at full capacity. However, Brave has great speeds and can even custom block ads and trackers.

The only downside to this browser is that it’s relatively new and may not be as fully developed as other privacy-focused web browsers. However, there is a great team of developers always working to improve the browser to ensure you will have a great experience while using it. Want to learn more about why Brave is a great choice?

3. Firefox

Although many people may assume that Firefox is just your average browser, if you add some specific add-ons it can be great for privacy. If you add the extensions HTTPS Everywhere, NoScript, Windscribe, and uBlock Origin, they can make your Firefox browser extremely secure and private. Another great element of using Firefox as your privacy-focused web browser is that it has really good downloading speeds and won’t slow down your Internet browsing at all. In addition, Firefox’s latest version claims to use 30 percent less memory than the Chrome on Windows computers. This is a great web browser for someone who wants added privacy but isn’t an expert on browsers.

Overall, privacy is extremely important when selecting a web browser. Any of these three privacy-focused web browsers can help keep your information and personal data safe.
