Just started. So far nothing negative to say. Will check back in within a few weeks. Thanks
Another bug?
by Ninjaroad6 on 2021/04/07 02:37
So I got on this app but the bookmarks disappeared. I don’t know what happened, I’m guessing it was the recent update, I don’t know what to do to regain them.
Quick and Responsive

Brave is extremely Quick and Responsive. It does everything Chrome and Mozilla do, only Better!
Great browser except videos
by mox.nix on 2021/04/02 17:03
Seems great except won’t play videos from websites.
Amazing!
by ronak barwari on 2021/03/29 20:47
I enjoy this allot I get privacy and can search whatever I want definitely recommend you downloading this!
Great idea

Great but TERRIBLE
by Jctech1215 on 2021/03/28 06:11
The browser works very well. But every few days, all of my bookmarks get completely deleted!!! This has happened atleast 15 times since an update or two ago. Hopefully it gets fixed soon! Really like this app otherwise.
Overall good app but needs two changes
by SwissArmyDev on 2021/03/27 14:58
1. It would be helpful to have the app auto replace dots with spaces in the search line before trying to search. They are next to each other on the keyboard and it’s easy to hit a dot instead of a space. If the app would to that replacement it would save having to enter the search string again. 2. The search engine setting reverts to default frequently, not remembering where the user set it.
Version 14 is a mess! Back to v 11.1 for me...
by Tzdle on 2021/03/25 15:24
I’m not sure WHAT the developers’ motivation was for the update to version 14, but it definitely has NOTHING to do with function or utility. I’ve given up and reverted to version 11.1 (otherwise known as “Private Browsing White”). To revert: Pony up $3 and download Private Browsing White from the App Store. It appears to be exactly the same as the black version (this one), before the update to v14. It’s not been updated for three years, still on v11.1. The White version works perfectly, exactly as I’ve been accustomed to using for the past few years. And devs... PLEEEEASE don’t update the Private Browsing White app!!!!
What’s happening??
by Don't know on 2021/03/25 02:07
Had been working very well until recently. Went through an update and it erased all my bookmarks. It’s also not saving anymore bookmarks after about 15 or so. It saves them but after closing the browser and reopening the app, the new ones are no longer there. In search of a new browser.
Great
by rocafina14 on 2021/03/12 01:55
The best app
love it (:
by auto correct challenge on 2021/03/10 16:12
It is so awesome
Last update broke it
by zxcvbnm,.lkjhgfdsapoiuyt on 2021/03/07 17:41
The last update wiped out all my bookmarks and now acts like it saves a new one. But when you close the browser and reopen it is gone. Their support site also isn't responsive. Not sure what has happened
Does and is what it purports
by PhoneInPushNotice on 2021/03/06 16:23
Worried about strings attached to your browser? Then, use this.
Works like a charm!
by Axgrinder on 2021/03/06 15:46
A free app of this quality, enough said!
Bookmarks disappeared
by Raysview on 2021/03/04 21:42
Love the app but recently three years worth of bookmarks disappeared. No idea what happened or how to get them back.
Use to be great - now it’s useless
by SpaceForThePoppa on 2021/03/04 11:59
It was a great privacy browser. Simple interface, easy to use. Since the most recent updates, bookmarks constantly get deleted. There’s a “fix” to store them in the cloud - I do not want to store them anywhere but on my iPad. That’s kind of the point of privacy. Also - trying to re-bookmark web sites, the “+” sign sometimes, randomly disappears. So after deleting the bookmarks, you can’t add them back. The first glitch wiped out about 40-50 bookmarks, the second time it wiped out a out 10. The last, and I do mean last time (because I am uninstalling it) it got 3.
Loads slow
by Real_Day on 2021/03/01 19:40
Every time I click on a website the site turns black and it never loads. I have to exit the app 10 times to get it to work.
Bookmarks deleted AGAIN
by Shrimpaloobooga on 2021/03/01 03:33
I’ve had my bookmarks erased about a half dozen times now!! Please fix this!!!
Great private browsing

Bookmarks Deleted...TWICE!
by kevvvy77 on 2021/02/28 06:50
Buyer Beware! This app has deleted ALL of my bookmarks two times in the last month. I give up. I forgave once, but it’s about to be deleted from my phone after the second time. Grrrrrrr!
Yep
by Beedobop72 on 2021/02/28 06:07
👍👍👍👍
It was great! But....
by Jhm52 on 2021/02/25 00:18
I would give this 5stars, but since the last update, I lost all of my bookmarks, and it will not save any bookmarks any more. I save the sites, it shows up as saved, but when I log out and return, they’re all gone again! I had no trouble prior to the update!
Love it
by JASUSHNE on 2021/02/23 16:18
Excellent
Good- but some bugs
by iratestufffff on 2021/02/23 13:25
A recent bug has appeared where it keeps resetting my settings, beyond just bookmarks. As an example the default search engine is Bing. I prefer Google so I change it to that in the settings. In about a day or two it always defaults back to Bing. Super frustrating to have to go into settings over and over again. Otherwise, the app works well, but some recent updates have been annoying.
Great
by Mseg1 on 2021/02/22 03:28
Works great. Privately!!
Garbage
by N8erz718 on 2021/02/20 17:26
Had deleted my bookmarks multiple times recently. Used to work great!
Does the job
by fruitypoundcake on 2021/02/20 15:30
The latest update fixed the previous issues about pages not loading and bookmarks not saving. Previous review: App worked great before I downloaded the latest update. Now no web pages will load. Refreshing doesn’t bring the page update. Don’t update!
Feature request
by TBB_Dood on 2021/02/19 03:40
Most apps allow tapping top of screen to scroll back up to top of page. This one doesn’t. Would be great if it did! Otherwise, great job!
Love it

Needs work !
by 420man650 on 2021/02/18 23:29
I love it and use it all the time . After the recent update what ever I save in my book marks usually deletes and clears itself new again ever 2-3 days . It’s so dumb . I think I might stop useing it .
Like it so much
by Mohamed.Milano on 2021/02/18 01:36
Best app ever ❤️❤️
Videos are unresponsive with this version
by ESUnification on 2021/02/17 15:54
I’ve found that Videos are unresponsive with this version on iOS 14. Hopefully the developers address that.
Come on, guys. Is it really that hard?
by ITWASMEHARRY on 2021/02/16 20:24
I swear every update gets worse than the last. I’m almost hesitate right update every time I see that one is available for me to download. And now all of my bookmarks are gone. Thanks a lot for that. Really.
Issues with v14
by Apollocreed487 on 2021/02/16 05:13
Was working great for years but experiencing many problems with v14, including lost all bookmarks. Still have connection failure errors, playing video issues and overall slow performance. Time to move on to another browser.
New update is a fail!
by Levi8696 on 2021/02/16 04:01
Loved this for years, recently lost all my Bookmarks and now I get constant pop ups :(
Oh no- bug list added
by Boooduuuud on 2021/02/15 19:35
I thought finally an update after yrs. but instead of a fix it’s way worse now. Plz let me revert to last version.- bugs to add - the bookmarks deleting randomly has been mentioned a lot. Secondly the prompt for restore or Touch ID is also very buggy it asks multiple times like In a loop and also at times like if there’s a pop up msg or control center slide. The back button and bookmarks are not visible and accidental touches to screen edge cause videos or pages to freeze needing reload. Changing from desktop or to mobile and back cause session to start blank. The early versions of this app didn’t have all these issues hopefully it can be reworked to operate like before.
Old version was better
by J:n on 2021/02/15 13:06
Since the update.... bookmarks keep getting erased.
Best search engine available!
by Turbie593 on 2021/02/15 05:33
I was amazed on how great this app works! I can instantly find anything that I search for.

Bookmarks Issue
by T.ech on 2021/02/10 22:05
No matter how many times you bookmark a page it will be gone next day. I don't know what developer's and testers of this app are working on
New update
by Rty0ix on 2021/02/09 21:29
The new update has damaged its usability. The app resets all settings daily. This means that every day I have to go into the settings and change the prompts and search engine.
My bookmarks are gone!!

New Update
by Afro.Jazz on 2021/02/06 09:27
It deleted all my old bookmarks after the last update and now it no longer saves bookmarks. The webpages don’t load anymore, either.
No longer a good app
by Bongobills on 2021/02/05 15:36
This app was great for the longest time. But recently it’s performance has dropped significantly. I’ve lost my bookmarks several times and on consecutive days. Based on its recent performance this app can no longer be trusted to work properly and is now useless unless the owners make significant changes to improve its functionality.
Bookmarks disappeared

Bookmarks gone
by jordan9697 on 2021/02/04 18:53
Was a good app, but after the update my bookmarks kept being deleted. I suggest you delete the app and find another browser. DuckDuckGo is a pretty good browser so far.
Please help
by Trash gam3 on 2021/02/04 17:47
Anyone know why I keep losing my bookmarks like sometimes I close the app and the next day I open it and all my bookmarks are gone

Lost Bookmarks....Twice
by Schnizzle99 on 2021/02/03 14:07
Was a great app for a couple of years. When they updated recently, I lost ALL my saved bookmarks. Unbelievable. Their latest “fix” update was supposed to fix this issue. After saving more bookmarks, they just disappeared AGAIN this morning. I’m done with this app. So p.o.‘d right now. Have deleted the app. Some advice.......Don’t fix something that isn’t broken.
Old version was good
by Ysivasai on 2021/02/03 02:31
New update feels like my data is being recorded. I am getting errors. Looks like they are saving me searches. No DuckDuckGo
bookmarks disappear frequently.
by jodiiieee320 on 2021/02/03 02:11
the bookmarks used to function so well, i probably had a dozen folders bookmarked for a couple of years, then after a few updates they disappear. every time i open the app now, my bookmarks disappear.
Lost bookmarks
by YarkYark on 2021/02/02 21:48
Three times in a week or so, my bookmarks have disappeared (the bookmarks page comes up blank) and I've had to restore by manually typing them in. Once is an accident or glitch, three times is a serious flaw. Let us know when you fix this so I can start using this otherwise awesome browser again.
why do my bookmarks keep clearing themselves??
by Zigg zagg 0982489 on 2021/02/02 13:25
this is a really great app but every so often (only since this most recent update, Jan 2021) my entire bookmarks are cleared like the app has restarted, it's really problematic and I'd appreciate if you guys could fix that. otherwise this is a great browser, hopefully in the next update it will fix but for now im just screenshotting and saving my bookmarks to photos so i don't forget them.
New update broke everything
by DatAzianGuy2K on 2021/02/02 13:07
Been using this app for years. I could just open it up, browse stuff or google a dumb question, close it, and not have to worry about it saving my search results or data. New update however broke everything. Now, when I open it up I get stuck having to “verify session” even though in the settings I disabled that option. I no longer can do a quick open up and search due to this. To top it off, a few days later after the update I lost ALL my bookmarks in the app. I had those saved for years, and now they are randomly all gone, along with my final reason to use this app. You had a good thing going, but decided to go and ruin it.
Lost hundreds of bookmarks
by IcyS7uff828 on 2021/02/02 07:32
After updating I lost hundreds of bookmarks accumulated over years on this app. Even after the most recent update they still have not been recovered.
What’s the point
by Rjenks on 2021/02/02 03:52
Browser brags about privacy but has its default search engine set to google!?, kinda defeats the purpose doesn’t it? I went into options to see if I could change it to duckduckgo, no luck. At least give us the option to choose a private search engine for our private browser.
Lost Bookmarks
by tomthasin on 2021/02/01 23:51
Looks like I wasn’t the only one who lost all my bookmarks after the recent update.
Needs improvement. A lot sadly.
by Mangofruitbutt on 2021/02/01 16:03
The newest update “tried to fix missing folders” by DELETING EVERY FOLDER I HAD. 😑😑super irritating. Also it was super easy to get in without my thumb or passcode if you try a good couple times sometimes on the 2nd try.
Works as far as I know
by Garretttatsumi on 2021/02/01 07:47

Reliable for years. Not anymore
by Atl's King James on 2021/01/28 03:21
Really enjoyed this browser, but the latest update removed bookmarks and appears to be reverting settings on its own. Even the latest “fix” doesn’t correct the issues. Still does an ok job as a separate browser, but I’ll have to delete it if it isn’t fixed soon.
How can you claim your Private?
by Krinko on 2021/01/27 23:49
How can you claim private browsing when in your own app it shows there is data use age collected and using the safari engine? Oh boy Apple is watching! Can you please just make a true private browser or simply change the model because this is not private it just doesn’t store cookies or cache! Please stop misleading your users to gain popularity...
Worked great for several years until recently

by Bobdilldo on 2021/01/26 00:29
This app was fantastic but this 14.0 update has removed all my bookmarks for some reason also the Face ID function that allowed me access to my bookmarks works but is then followed by a black screen where none of the bookmarks I have now will load. Other than that the app is good. Fix the bugs please.
Happy with your service

Pages don’t load, bookmarks gone
by John9731 on 2021/01/24 20:16
Looks like there was zero testing done before release. You have to close the app window and then bring back from the app switcher for pages to load. My bookmarks were there for a couple of days after updating and today they are all gone. This was once a great app. iOS 14.3
14.0 Broken!
by JunctionJoe on 2021/01/24 16:47
Has worked great for years. Newest version a few days ago broke everything. I get nothing but a blank screen. Several other reviewers lost their bookmarks. Thankfully, all my bookmarks are intact. It’s just all of them render nothing but a blank screen. What did you do? This has sent me back to the App Store searching for a new private browser. Hopefully, I’m not too accustomed to the new browser by the time you fix this. I bet you’re going to lose a ton of users because of this. And I don’t see much of anything driving them back to your browser once you fix it. Best of luck in building back your user base. Sorry. This has been a perfect app for a lot of years. I hate to part company.
Latest update 1/23/21 bad...

Need option to revert to previous version

Great privacy browser!
Even the name is just "browser"
by  on 2017/12/30 01:10
There is one small bar at the top of the browser. It has the back button, an icon that opens both bookmarks+settings, and the classic search bar with reload/stop. That's it. Other browsers make it super easy to post websites/links to social media while browsing. You could accidentally post the website you were just on to your Facebook page and not even realize it. It's that easy! Not with this app, no sir. Want to share something? Your only option is the ancient, barbaric method of... COPY AND PASTING A URL😱 There also isn't any "add to reading list option" either. It looks like Safari if you removed that bottom bar. There is no browsing history. It does not track or remember websites you go to. This can be extremely distressing when you see an ad it's not even related to your interests. Oh wait, you won't see any ads cause it has a built in (optional) ad blocker. You will have to get used to no one being there to "improve your browsing experience" as Chrome says. It has the absolute minimum when it comes to features. It has the essential functions needed to use the internet. Nothing more, nothing less. Which is exactly why I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!! 5 STARS!!!!
Fantastic Browser
by Auntie Erma on 2017/12/09 15:21
I've been using this browser for years on every iphone, as I progress to each new model. Using this browser in addition to The DuckDuckGo search engine gives me piece of mind that google and the NSA aren't tracking my online website visits. Safari is the standard Apple browser. However, I don't trust that my browsing isn't saved and reported. This browser is every bit as good, if not better. Additionally I can use this browser as I'm listening to an online radio broadcast on Safari. I find that this browser is fantastic for visiting alternative media sites. Additionally this browser allows the bookmarking of frequently visited websites. I'm very pleased!
It’s a good app! The only thing is....
by NyanaGamer on 2020/02/02 16:15
It’s a good app! It doesn’t save any of what you researched back then or the websites that you have used in the past. But, apparently...this is just copying the dark mode that you can use on google, the dark mode helps not to save anything you research and the websites you have used and it pretty much does the same thing as this app does so if you are looking for more privacy then google provides, this isn’t the app. It’s just like the dark mode the only difference is it’s an app and the search bar when you first click on it. Though, it does have its plus’s that the dark mode on google CAN’T provide such as, it needs a password (I think, I don’t know how other phones work) or a finger print (I can guarantee that this is true! I use my fingerprint to use this) and if you go back to the app and want to erase everything you searched then you can! It gives you an option to do that. Great 👍 app overall just needs to have a little more of its own features and it needs to give features that will wow everyone a little more. FYI: My expectations are very high! ✅
Privacy in a labyrinth
by Hear a Door on 2018/07/18 07:57
This app is incredibly simplistic and easy to use for the most part. It blocks all cookies so any website that makes you have ‘5 more free articles’ for news sites will always be that way. The app itself is great except for some pretty big annoying cons. Pros: -You never have to clear browsing history -You can add password protection or even Touch ID so that when you leave the app no one but yourself can get back in. -When you leave the app it shows a normal black border completely hiding what page you were on -Fullscreen for a page Cons -You can only ever have one tab open -If you want to get back to a page, you’ll have to do a lot of back arrowing -Getting the status bar/search bar open is incredibly hard if it’s gone, which it will be almost always. Sometimes you’ll be stuck on pages for minutes trying to get to the search engine -Gmail doesn’t work at all Pro/Con -Most websites can’t tell you’re on a phone, but it also means it harder to get around on them If you are thinking of using this app for privacy, I suggest not since there are much better browsers out there. If you’re new to privacy protection on mobile I suggest using the duck duck go browser app.
Free - Secure - No frills or Ads
by bcandg on 2021/01/23 15:14
If like me you’ve tried countless other browsers in your efforts to tighten security, and you’re looking for FREE no frills browsing... you’ll want to check this out! There is a pro version which I’ve yet to check out because this browser is all I need. Setting your default search to DuckDuckGo and using this browser gives you peace of mind you’re not being tracked or leaving footprints. Security, by default is tight. I use an iPad and when I open the “Browser” it asks for thumbprint ID - very cool. Can’t stress this enough... no ads, no rent by week, month, year! The Pro version is a one time fee of $2.99. Will update review after I’ve used it.
This app is perfect for newspapers that only limit you to 5 articles
by Twofiveking on 2019/01/16 15:02
Perfect for what I use it for. Me personally I don’t care who tracks my online activity but with this app I read newspapers that limit me to 5 articles then they want you to join and pay a subscription this app makes it possible to read as many articles as you want. It’s crazy all this technology at the end of the day no matter what you do your being tracked it’s just the way life is these days. 5 stars for sure this app is one for the people thanks to whoever developed it.
This is a Great App
by 49ergoldminer on 2018/11/21 04:24
I never liked Safari, it just angered me. I’ve used this app since it was available on the iPhone 4, and once iPhone had setting changes, I realized how cluttered Safari was. I have never written a review on any other app, but this app is so good that I caved. I use it so much for using the internet that my brain has gone: “Internet? This button over here!” If I didn’t call people, and therefor have a use for the phone app, this would be one of the four exclusive apps on my bottom bar. This app is great and I cannot recommend it enough.
Simple but works great!
by Fat Brama on 2020/11/26 23:35
I found this app when looking for a Safari replacement. For some reason, Safari kept reloading webpages every 3 min. Due to compatibility issue with my ancient iPad version, popular web browser such as Chrome, Mozilla, Microsoft Edge is not an option. Then, I came across this browser, and this eliminated the reloading problem. I think due to its simple design, this browser loads pages reasonably fast. The search results are also quite relevant. It also has a back button! On the contrary, Dolphin has no back button.
Wow it really works!!
by I>3me101 on 2018/07/03 14:54
I always have to look up weird medical questions and some of them can be really embarrassing. Everyone says I’m so protective of my phone and that’s why! Anyway, now I don’t even have to worry about giving my phone to someone and them stumbling on awkward questions like: I’m not pregnant am I? Yes, I’ll have to give it a five stars because no one will suspect anything seeing it in one of my folders, because the name is just browser. THANK YOU FOR MAKING SUCH A SAFE BROWSING AREA!!
14.0 Broken!
by JunctionJoe on 2021/01/24 16:47
Has worked great for years. Newest version a few days ago broke everything. I get nothing but a blank screen. Several other reviewers lost their bookmarks. Thankfully, all my bookmarks are intact. It’s just all of them render nothing but a blank screen. What did you do? This has sent me back to the App Store searching for a new private browser. Hopefully, I’m not too accustomed to the new browser by the time you fix this. I bet you’re going to lose a ton of users because of this. And I don’t see much of anything driving them back to your browser once you fix it. Best of luck in building back your user base. Sorry. This has been a perfect app for a lot of years. I hate to part company.
Functionality supports privacy
by poalo121213 on 2020/04/24 08:45
There are a few features that I prefer while using this app that I think people looking for a similar product are looking for. Briefly: 1. Navigating away from the browser is accompanied by a password protected re-entry to continue browsing, this feature is timed which is great but it is brief. If you haven’t saved the page you are looking at an urgent phone call or text message might make you lose your spot. 2. The search bar does not saved visited webpages. There is nowhere to review pages that have been visited in the past unless you have saved it in your password protected favorites. 3. Favorites are password protected. My only suggestion would be adding one thing. This app is otherwise perfect. The option to toggle how long it holds your current browsing page before reset would be great. Instead of 30 seconds to 1 min. Maybe the option to hold it for 5 would be great.
New update broke everything
by DatAzianGuy2K on 2021/02/02 13:07
Been using this app for years. I could just open it up, browse stuff or google a dumb question, close it, and not have to worry about it saving my search results or data. New update however broke everything. Now, when I open it up I get stuck having to “verify session” even though in the settings I disabled that option. I no longer can do a quick open up and search due to this. To top it off, a few days later after the update I lost ALL my bookmarks in the app. I had those saved for years, and now they are randomly all gone, along with my final reason to use this app. You had a good thing going, but decided to go and ruin it.
This thing is dangerous
by JJPANDA01 on 2019/11/05 18:24
At first it was working perfectly for what I was using it for and then what happened was that a pop up call box came up and it did not stop when you pressed cancel, then I tried turning it of and it didn’t work then I tried to turn it off completely and the screen was frozen and even if you pressed the call button it would still pop up it got so bad it got to the point that I had to call my sister, luckily she was able to restart it, that’s my story with this HORRIBLE APP!!!!!!!!!I hope none of you go through what did and you may think that I am over reacting bot it was scary because I have had this device for less than a year
Surprisingly pleased.
by Wollen_Kitten on 2019/09/05 17:43
I’ve used private browsers before for local newspaper sites that require an outrageous monthly fee. I’d be happy to pay the fee if newspapers would stop biased reporting, but that’s unlikely. It takes some getting used to, as you have to start over if you click out of the app, but I haven’t run into any issues whatsoever with it otherwise. It does what Google Chrome’s private browsing cannot and for that I’m eternally grateful.
Really Great App
by @Lanarosek on 2018/11/04 05:37
I’ve been using this app for a while, but the only problem I’ve had with it recently is saving images (like on Google). When saving an image from Google Images, the app just crashes and I go back to my homescreen. Upon opening the app again, I don’t have the option to go back to my last session. I usually just use this instead of Safari or Google because it saves me the time of getting rid of the clutter. I really love this app, but I just hope the image issue gets fixed!
Excellent lv. 3 Security Browser! Recommended.
by codypmack on 2017/12/02 23:07
Confirmed this app runs smoothly a 4th gen iPad and an iPhone 6s. When you lock the screen or switch apps even for a moment, it goes to the home screen. This is made for intentional uses, and doesn't not make a friendly primary browser (unless you're extremely privacy conscious). My suggestion is use the Firefox app duo (normal / incognito) for lv. 1 & 2, this for uses beyond those.
If you don’t want anybody find out you watch vore
by tf2-yung-plague on 2018/01/18 07:02
Simplistic, clean, and has an option that blocks pop ups (as you can imagine, incredibly useful when you are browsing porn and three tabs about your iphone got a virus open at the same time). I would recommend this over any other browsers out there if your goal is simply to browse privately.
Good app but it needs few adjustments
by Sister Friede on 2018/07/07 05:52
It’s a good internet browser app, but the option is somewhat limited. I like an idea about keeping the “Browser” simple. I missed couple features for internet browser. 1) It has no “Open in new tab”. 2) No side swipe to go back or forth in web page (for sake of better convenience). 3) Homepage. It can be access with “in app purchase” for $2.99. However I don’t know if it’s possible to change the homepage to preferred website.
Overall good app but needs two changes
by SwissArmyDev on 2021/03/27 14:58
1. It would be helpful to have the app auto replace dots with spaces in the search line before trying to search. They are next to each other on the keyboard and it’s easy to hit a dot instead of a space. If the app would to that replacement it would save having to enter the search string again. 2. The search engine setting reverts to default frequently, not remembering where the user set it.
No Privacy!
by Aboo Adam on 2019/08/27 06:24
Years using this for my porn, great tool for that of you have children and you don’t want them to see that, but today I opened Safari app and same page I was on early morning same page with adult material that I would never ever see on Safari app. It came up quickly and left and this is not the first time but for an iPhone10 X plus This is weak technology
Browser
by Flyinjeep on 2019/10/02 18:43
I’ve got about all the browsing apps or at least tried them. I think think this is the best. Browse the internet in privacy. All you’re browsing deleted when you are done each session of browsing. You should at least try it if your looking for a internet browser. I think you’ll like it. I do.
Good- but some bugs
by iratestufffff on 2021/02/23 13:25
A recent bug has appeared where it keeps resetting my settings, beyond just bookmarks. As an example the default search engine is Bing. I prefer Google so I change it to that in the settings. In about a day or two it always defaults back to Bing. Super frustrating to have to go into settings over and over again. Otherwise, the app works well, but some recent updates have been annoying.
Version 14 is a mess! Back to v 11.1 for me...
by Tzdle on 2021/03/25 15:24
I’m not sure WHAT the developers’ motivation was for the update to version 14, but it definitely has NOTHING to do with function or utility. I’ve given up and reverted to version 11.1 (otherwise known as “Private Browsing White”). To revert: Pony up $3 and download Private Browsing White from the App Store. It appears to be exactly the same as the black version (this one), before the update to v14. It’s not been updated for three years, still on v11.1. The White version works perfectly, exactly as I’ve been accustomed to using for the past few years. And devs... PLEEEEASE don’t update the Private Browsing White app!!!!
Great Simple Private Browser
by Jkgagne808 on 2018/06/23 23:44
The title explains it all. Just a simple private browser with out all the complicated syncing options and setup. I am still able to save my bookmarks and they are protected by Touch ID. Please keep it simple and don’t start complicating things with more options. Simple at times is better as more options opens up products to more threats. Thank you
Really good. Get this one, not that orange one :P
by Azami🍜 on 2017/10/17 20:59
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this app, no ads, no fake stuff. The only thing I would recommend is that you add a forward/back button. Sometimes when I click on links I can't go back to the previous page, so I have to search all over again. Great app! <3
Use to be great - now it’s useless
by SpaceForThePoppa on 2021/03/04 11:59
It was a great privacy browser. Simple interface, easy to use. Since the most recent updates, bookmarks constantly get deleted. There’s a “fix” to store them in the cloud - I do not want to store them anywhere but on my iPad. That’s kind of the point of privacy. Also - trying to re-bookmark web sites, the “+” sign sometimes, randomly disappears. So after deleting the bookmarks, you can’t add them back. The first glitch wiped out about 40-50 bookmarks, the second time it wiped out a out 10. The last, and I do mean last time (because I am uninstalling it) it got 3.
Simple Free Fast Clears browsing history
by Skulljagger on 2019/05/09 14:16
It’s such a simple browsing app that really beats Safari’s privacy mode. It’s fast it’s simple and it clears all data making it easy for you to search up as many articles you want on money grabbing websites. I love it but I wish it would ask for my password or Touch ID as soon as I log back into the app
Great App, but has limited Bookmarks
by FEENICKS on 2020/03/05 06:33
Needs to be updated, long over due!!! Needs the option to always be able to Restore Last Session. Sometimes the Last Session is lost for good! Also, when you reach the limit of Bookmarks, you have to delete previous Bookmarks to save more. Same with Folders. Please fix this, and provide the ability to have more Bookmarks and Folders!!!
As Good As Advertised!
by David from W. PA on 2018/01/05 23:07
I just started using this today. It is so simple that at first I was looking for more necessary input when it wasn't needed. Either input your URL or key in your search criteria in the URL field and away you go. One thing that is not obvious is you need to tap the upper left blank field (to the left of the URL bar) to add your bookmarks.
Pretty good, but one small problem (Fixed).
by IPTuser on 2018/02/26 18:57
Haven't used it much lately, but the issue I had is fixed. Will be trying it out more. Original review from about 7 years ago below. Original review: Good concept. The one part I don't like though is having to scroll all the way to the top of the page to open the status bar. Fix this, and four stars, easy.
Great browser
by drjohn05 on 2020/10/01 17:54
I lost the bookmark star on chrome for my iPad. I couldn’t get it back and couldn’t update chrome. Fed up I looked for solutions. I tried several other browsers but they all lacked what I needed. One couldn’t even play the Asian drama videos I look at. Now I have everything I need plus security and anonymous browsing. Perfection!!!
Does the job
by fruitypoundcake on 2021/02/20 15:30
The latest update fixed the previous issues about pages not loading and bookmarks not saving. Previous review: App worked great before I downloaded the latest update. Now no web pages will load. Refreshing doesn’t bring the page update. Don’t update!
Perfection
by /-/-/-\-\-\ on 2019/04/02 20:09
Gives all the privacy you need you can enable face/finger id for entering in the and your bookmarks. You have a built in ad block and can switch from normal mode to desktop mode. Wish it allowed flash players on it though. Other than that and seeing your history for your current session it’s PERFECT!
Trying it out
by hardlysentient on 2017/09/19 12:13
So far so good. I'm digging it and it does what it says it does. It makes me feel a little more secure about my browsing. I've been using it to search up flights, without those pesky observances where they up the prices of flights simply because I am viewing ticket prices...
Love it
by Guest Mill Pond on 2017/12/18 01:25
First off I hate Apple reviews after I completed my review and submitted it it said my nickname have been taken seven times About the proper what's not to like totally private somebody walks in everything is right I have her I always save my website before I start doing a video so if I have to turn it off I can go back to it
As advertised
by Begin to paying on 2018/11/01 21:08
Does exactly what it says. Just don't forget you were using Browser and not your other apps, because if you forget and go to another screen, because when you come back,as far as browser is concerned it's a whole New World, And you've never met. Kind of like that Groundhog Day movie… LOL
Pros and cons
by addy.31 on 2017/09/30 17:19
This app is awesome it's an app that lets you search any thing and not have a search history. The only bad thing is if you open an other app it won't save what you're doing. So if you get a notification and you're watching a video and you click on the notification you won't be able to finish your video.
Love it
by JWolfePak on 2018/02/01 00:46
Just downloaded this browser and I already love it. I value my privacy and feel safer with this. It allows you to control who uses your browser and an easy way to go back to your sessions or delete them right away. Thanks for creating such a private and smart browser!!!
Not fancy but works as advertised...
by Gpod52 on 2017/09/16 14:03
This is not a glitzy app by any stretch, but I am satisfied with performance. By keeping it simple, adverse online stumbling blocks can be obviated. Update: I can't see the top header control options. Needs a settings option. I don't see why tabs can't be an option. Otherwise, it's quite good.
Great
by Jojo3406 on 2017/11/19 05:30
People are complaining that there is no back button. You just need to turn your screen sideways and then up right again, the home button will come back. One complaint I have is whenever I try to save an image from google, the app crashes.
A truly private experience
by CsmtcSrgnMd on 2017/09/25 01:11
The best securely most private browser available. It's easy to use and very private. Only pitfall is if you must open an app or leave the browser for any reason, you cannot just go back to where you left off. (for example; you just received a notification that you have a new email)
Free VPN!
by Slackmore on 2018/01/26 10:10
An app offering the service of a VPN for FREE as long as your using this browser....this browser? This 🖕🏻🤦🏻‍♂️ browser without bookmarks or multitabs function or accessibility to the most basic of features. Oh well. I'll hold on to this browser for the day I need to slowly, singularly fumble through an anonymous site unable to long press or toolbar or hotkey anything. The VPN is ALL this browser has but it even looks and feels incomplete without
Used to be 5-star
by R. Maurer on 2019/07/16 15:14
Starting today, the entire app freezes when I try to type in the top search bar. And, it no longer “launches clean”, with just a simple search tab in the middle like your screenshot. The screen is now filled with shortcuts to websites. Put it back the way it was, I’ll revise to 5-stars. And BTW, I see no way to contact you personally, or I would not have gone public with a middling rating.
It doesn't crash and reload page like Safari!!!
by Randell2 on 2018/12/05 05:52
I'm using an older iPad mini that cannot update the iOS higher than v9.3.5. Safari is miserable to use with all the crashing and reloading. This browser really seems to do well. Thank you
why do my bookmarks keep clearing themselves??
by Zigg zagg 0982489 on 2021/02/02 13:25
this is a really great app but every so often (only since this most recent update, Jan 2021) my entire bookmarks are cleared like the app has restarted, it's really problematic and I'd appreciate if you guys could fix that. otherwise this is a great browser, hopefully in the next update it will fix but for now im just screenshotting and saving my bookmarks to photos so i don't forget them.
Amazing! Simple Amazing!
by J.Castor on 2018/10/02 17:23
I just like many people don’t write reviews, but with this app I felt compelled to. It works like it’s supposed to and the fact that you need to re-authenticate to continue with your previous browsing session in the even someone gets your phone is just great thinking!
Perfect
by Dulcineawitz on 2018/10/07 05:01
Unlike almost every other application designed for browser, (google, chrome, etc.) This gives you the option to clear your history or keep it by just going to the app again.
Lovin' it!
by prsphn23 on 2017/11/08 12:26
I accidentally deleted my Bing search engine so I went looking for it. I saw this private search engine among the suggestions. The reviews were positive except there were concerns about the fact there was no back arrow. No biggie. I downloaded the app. GREAT search engine! So glad I found it. Thank you!
Nearly all good!
by Merikr on 2017/10/30 21:09
Very fast and easy to use! Only down side and I can see why it is so, is the fact that if you leave the app, it closes everything and you can not get back to where you were without completely starting over.

Another bug?
by Ninjaroad6 on 2021/04/07 02:37
So I got on this app but the bookmarks disappeared. I don’t know what happened, I’m guessing it was the recent update, I don’t know what to do to regain them.
Quick and Responsive
by JPCLASS on 2021/04/03 14:13
Brave is extremely Quick and Responsive. It does everything Chrome and Mozilla do, only Better!
Great browser except videos

Great but TERRIBLE
by Jctech1215 on 2021/03/28 06:11
The browser works very well. But every few days, all of my bookmarks get completely deleted!!! This has happened atleast 15 times since an update or two ago. Hopefully it gets fixed soon! Really like this app otherwise.
Overall good app but needs two changes

What’s happening??
by Don't know on 2021/03/25 02:07
Had been working very well until recently. Went through an update and it erased all my bookmarks. It’s also not saving anymore bookmarks after about 15 or so. It saves them but after closing the browser and reopening the app, the new ones are no longer there. In search of a new browser.
Great
by rocafina14 on 2021/03/12 01:55

love it (:

Last update broke it
by zxcvbnm,.lkjhgfdsapoiuyt on 2021/03/07 17:41
The last update wiped out all my bookmarks and now acts like it saves a new one. But when you close the browser and reopen it is gone. Their support site also isn't responsive. Not sure what has happened
Does and is what it purports

Bookmarks disappeared
by Raysview on 2021/03/04 21:42
Love the app but recently three years worth of bookmarks disappeared. No idea what happened or how to get them back.
Use to be great - now it’s useless
by SpaceForThePoppa on 2021/03/04 11:59
It was a great privacy browser. Simple interface, easy to use. Since the most recent updates, bookmarks constantly get deleted. There’s a “fix” to store them in the cloud - I do not want to store them anywhere but on my iPad. That’s kind of the point of privacy. Also - trying to re-bookmark web sites, the “+” sign sometimes, randomly disappears. So after deleting the bookmarks, you can’t add them back. The first glitch wiped out about 40-50 bookmarks, the second time it wiped out a out 10. The last, and I do mean last time (because I am uninstalling it) it got 3.
Loads slow
by Real_Day on 2021/03/01 19:40
Every time I click on a website the site turns black and it never loads. I have to exit the app 10 times to get it to work.
Bookmarks deleted AGAIN
by Shrimpaloobooga on 2021/03/01 03:33
I’ve had my bookmarks erased about a half dozen times now!! Please fix this!!!
Great private browsing

Bookmarks Deleted...TWICE!
by kevvvy77 on 2021/02/28 06:50
Buyer Beware! This app has deleted ALL of my bookmarks two times in the last month. I give up. I forgave once, but it’s about to be deleted from my phone after the second time. Grrrrrrr!
Yep

It was great! But....
by Jhm52 on 2021/02/25 00:18
I would give this 5stars, but since the last update, I lost all of my bookmarks, and it will not save any bookmarks any more. I save the sites, it shows up as saved, but when I log out and return, they’re all gone again! I had no trouble prior to the update!
Love it
by JASUSHNE on 2021/02/23 16:18
Excellent
Good- but some bugs
by iratestufffff on 2021/02/23 13:25
A recent bug has appeared where it keeps resetting my settings, beyond just bookmarks. As an example the default search engine is Bing. I prefer Google so I change it to that in the settings. In about a day or two it always defaults back to Bing. Super frustrating to have to go into settings over and over again. Otherwise, the app works well, but some recent updates have been annoying.
Great

Works great. Privately!!
Garbage
by N8erz718 on 2021/02/20 17:26
Had deleted my bookmarks multiple times recently. Used to work great!
Does the job
by fruitypoundcake on 2021/02/20 15:30
The latest update fixed the previous issues about pages not loading and bookmarks not saving. Previous review: App worked great before I downloaded the latest update. Now no web pages will load. Refreshing doesn’t bring the page update. Don’t update!
Feature request
by TBB_Dood on 2021/02/19 03:40
Most apps allow tapping top of screen to scroll back up to top of page. This one doesn’t. Would be great if it did! Otherwise, great job!
Love it

Needs work !
by 420man650 on 2021/02/18 23:29
I love it and use it all the time . After the recent update what ever I save in my book marks usually deletes and clears itself new again ever 2-3 days . It’s so dumb . I think I might stop useing it .
Like it so much

Best app ever ❤️❤️
Videos are unresponsive with this version
by ESUnification on 2021/02/17 15:54
I’ve found that Videos are unresponsive with this version on iOS 14. Hopefully the developers address that.
Come on, guys. Is it really that hard?
by ITWASMEHARRY on 2021/02/16 20:24
I swear every update gets worse than the last. I’m almost hesitate right update every time I see that one is available for me to download. And now all of my bookmarks are gone. Thanks a lot for that. Really.
Issues with v14
by Apollocreed487 on 2021/02/16 05:13
Was working great for years but experiencing many problems with v14, including lost all bookmarks. Still have connection failure errors, playing video issues and overall slow performance. Time to move on to another browser.
New update is a fail!
by Levi8696 on 2021/02/16 04:01
Loved this for years, recently lost all my Bookmarks and now I get constant pop ups :(
Oh no- bug list added
by Boooduuuud on 2021/02/15 19:35
I thought finally an update after yrs. but instead of a fix it’s way worse now. Plz let me revert to last version.- bugs to add - the bookmarks deleting randomly has been mentioned a lot. Secondly the prompt for restore or Touch ID is also very buggy it asks multiple times like In a loop and also at times like if there’s a pop up msg or control center slide. The back button and bookmarks are not visible and accidental touches to screen edge cause videos or pages to freeze needing reload. Changing from desktop or to mobile and back cause session to start blank. The early versions of this app didn’t have all these issues hopefully it can be reworked to operate like before.
Old version was better
by J:n on 2021/02/15 13:06
Since the update.... bookmarks keep getting erased.
Best search engine available!
by Turbie593 on 2021/02/15 05:33
I was amazed on how great this app works! I can instantly find anything that I search for.
Gone gone gone!

Bookmarks all gone. Unbelievable.
Bookmarks KEEP disappearing!!!
by t r e m o r s on 2021/02/13 00:09
My bookmarks have disappeared 3 times now and I’m mad they STILL haven’t fixed this even though they claimed they did in the past update! Fix it NOW
Missing bookmarks
by Peanut703 on 2021/02/11 14:23
Apparently I am one of many that had this issue. Unacceptable and app will be deleted.
Bookmarks Issue
by T.ech on 2021/02/10 22:05
No matter how many times you bookmark a page it will be gone next day. I don't know what developer's and testers of this app are working on
New update
by Rty0ix on 2021/02/09 21:29
The new update has damaged its usability. The app resets all settings daily. This means that every day I have to go into the settings and change the prompts and search engine.
My bookmarks are gone!!
by Mariposa999 on 2021/02/09 04:13
I love this app but all my bookmarks have disappeared and the last time I used this app was two days ago!!! Plz fix!!!

New Update
by Afro.Jazz on 2021/02/06 09:27
It deleted all my old bookmarks after the last update and now it no longer saves bookmarks. The webpages don’t load anymore, either.
No longer a good app
by Bongobills on 2021/02/05 15:36
This app was great for the longest time. But recently it’s performance has dropped significantly. I’ve lost my bookmarks several times and on consecutive days. Based on its recent performance this app can no longer be trusted to work properly and is now useless unless the owners make significant changes to improve its functionality.
Bookmarks disappeared
by chickengreese on 2021/02/05 05:18
This private browser is amazing but I had to many bookmarks to count for anime and I lost all of it
This app is trash now

This used to be great now bookmarks are erased and pages don’t load.
This is absolutely the best browser!
by Audible Illusion on 2021/02/04 19:22
This web browser with privacy works very well indeed! I highly recommend it! And it’s free!
Bookmarks gone
by jordan9697 on 2021/02/04 18:53
Was a good app, but after the update my bookmarks kept being deleted. I suggest you delete the app and find another browser. DuckDuckGo is a pretty good browser so far.
Please help
by Trash gam3 on 2021/02/04 17:47
Anyone know why I keep losing my bookmarks like sometimes I close the app and the next day I open it and all my bookmarks are gone

Lost Bookmarks....Twice
by Schnizzle99 on 2021/02/03 14:07
Was a great app for a couple of years. When they updated recently, I lost ALL my saved bookmarks. Unbelievable. Their latest “fix” update was supposed to fix this issue. After saving more bookmarks, they just disappeared AGAIN this morning. I’m done with this app. So p.o.‘d right now. Have deleted the app. Some advice.......Don’t fix something that isn’t broken.
Old version was good
by Ysivasai on 2021/02/03 02:31
New update feels like my data is being recorded. I am getting errors. Looks like they are saving me searches. No DuckDuckGo
bookmarks disappear frequently.
by jodiiieee320 on 2021/02/03 02:11
the bookmarks used to function so well, i probably had a dozen folders bookmarked for a couple of years, then after a few updates they disappear. every time i open the app now, my bookmarks disappear.
Lost bookmarks
by YarkYark on 2021/02/02 21:48
Three times in a week or so, my bookmarks have disappeared (the bookmarks page comes up blank) and I've had to restore by manually typing them in. Once is an accident or glitch, three times is a serious flaw. Let us know when you fix this so I can start using this otherwise awesome browser again.
why do my bookmarks keep clearing themselves??
by Zigg zagg 0982489 on 2021/02/02 13:25
this is a really great app but every so often (only since this most recent update, Jan 2021) my entire bookmarks are cleared like the app has restarted, it's really problematic and I'd appreciate if you guys could fix that. otherwise this is a great browser, hopefully in the next update it will fix but for now im just screenshotting and saving my bookmarks to photos so i don't forget them.
New update broke everything
by DatAzianGuy2K on 2021/02/02 13:07
Been using this app for years. I could just open it up, browse stuff or google a dumb question, close it, and not have to worry about it saving my search results or data. New update however broke everything. Now, when I open it up I get stuck having to “verify session” even though in the settings I disabled that option. I no longer can do a quick open up and search due to this. To top it off, a few days later after the update I lost ALL my bookmarks in the app. I had those saved for years, and now they are randomly all gone, along with my final reason to use this app. You had a good thing going, but decided to go and ruin it.
Lost hundreds of bookmarks
by IcyS7uff828 on 2021/02/02 07:32
After updating I lost hundreds of bookmarks accumulated over years on this app. Even after the most recent update they still have not been recovered.
What’s the point
by Rjenks on 2021/02/02 03:52
Browser brags about privacy but has its default search engine set to google!?, kinda defeats the purpose doesn’t it? I went into options to see if I could change it to duckduckgo, no luck. At least give us the option to choose a private search engine for our private browser.
Lost Bookmarks
by tomthasin on 2021/02/01 23:51
Looks like I wasn’t the only one who lost all my bookmarks after the recent update.
Needs improvement. A lot sadly.
by Mangofruitbutt on 2021/02/01 16:03
The newest update “tried to fix missing folders” by DELETING EVERY FOLDER I HAD. 😑😑super irritating. Also it was super easy to get in without my thumb or passcode if you try a good couple times sometimes on the 2nd try.
Works as far as I know
by Garretttatsumi on 2021/02/01 07:47

Reliable for years. Not anymore
by Atl's King James on 2021/01/28 03:21
Really enjoyed this browser, but the latest update removed bookmarks and appears to be reverting settings on its own. Even the latest “fix” doesn’t correct the issues. Still does an ok job as a separate browser, but I’ll have to delete it if it isn’t fixed soon.
How can you claim your Private?
by Krinko on 2021/01/27 23:49
How can you claim private browsing when in your own app it shows there is data use age collected and using the safari engine? Oh boy Apple is watching! Can you please just make a true private browser or simply change the model because this is not private it just doesn’t store cookies or cache! Please stop misleading your users to gain popularity...
Worked great for several years until recently

They’re all gone. I need them back, these were happy photos and links to letters which comforted me. So many, all gone. Update did not fix. Session check in in way if everything despite trying to remove it. This is awful.

Bugs
by Bobdilldo on 2021/01/26 00:29
This app was fantastic but this 14.0 update has removed all my bookmarks for some reason also the Face ID function that allowed me access to my bookmarks works but is then followed by a black screen where none of the bookmarks I have now will load. Other than that the app is good. Fix the bugs please.
Happy with your service

Pages don’t load, bookmarks gone
by John9731 on 2021/01/24 20:16
Looks like there was zero testing done before release. You have to close the app window and then bring back from the app switcher for pages to load. My bookmarks were there for a couple of days after updating and today they are all gone. This was once a great app. iOS 14.3
14.0 Broken!
by JunctionJoe on 2021/01/24 16:47
Has worked great for years. Newest version a few days ago broke everything. I get nothing but a blank screen. Several other reviewers lost their bookmarks. Thankfully, all my bookmarks are intact. It’s just all of them render nothing but a blank screen. What did you do? This has sent me back to the App Store searching for a new private browser. Hopefully, I’m not too accustomed to the new browser by the time you fix this. I bet you’re going to lose a ton of users because of this. And I don’t see much of anything driving them back to your browser once you fix it. Best of luck in building back your user base. Sorry. This has been a perfect app for a lot of years. I hate to part company.
Latest update 1/23/21 bad...

Need option to revert to previous version

As many others are saying, this worked great for years and now a disaster of an update. Videos will not play full screen. Please fix this.

Great privacy browser!
Even the name is just "browser"
by  on 2017/12/30 01:10
There is one small bar at the top of the browser. It has the back button, an icon that opens both bookmarks+settings, and the classic search bar with reload/stop. That's it. Other browsers make it super easy to post websites/links to social media while browsing. You could accidentally post the website you were just on to your Facebook page and not even realize it. It's that easy! Not with this app, no sir. Want to share something? Your only option is the ancient, barbaric method of... COPY AND PASTING A URL😱 There also isn't any "add to reading list option" either. It looks like Safari if you removed that bottom bar. There is no browsing history. It does not track or remember websites you go to. This can be extremely distressing when you see an ad it's not even related to your interests. Oh wait, you won't see any ads cause it has a built in (optional) ad blocker. You will have to get used to no one being there to "improve your browsing experience" as Chrome says. It has the absolute minimum when it comes to features. It has the essential functions needed to use the internet. Nothing more, nothing less. Which is exactly why I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!! 5 STARS!!!!
Fantastic Browser
by Auntie Erma on 2017/12/09 15:21
I've been using this browser for years on every iphone, as I progress to each new model. Using this browser in addition to The DuckDuckGo search engine gives me piece of mind that google and the NSA aren't tracking my online website visits. Safari is the standard Apple browser. However, I don't trust that my browsing isn't saved and reported. This browser is every bit as good, if not better. Additionally I can use this browser as I'm listening to an online radio broadcast on Safari. I find that this browser is fantastic for visiting alternative media sites. Additionally this browser allows the bookmarking of frequently visited websites. I'm very pleased!
It’s a good app! The only thing is....
by NyanaGamer on 2020/02/02 16:15
It’s a good app! It doesn’t save any of what you researched back then or the websites that you have used in the past. But, apparently...this is just copying the dark mode that you can use on google, the dark mode helps not to save anything you research and the websites you have used and it pretty much does the same thing as this app does so if you are looking for more privacy then google provides, this isn’t the app. It’s just like the dark mode the only difference is it’s an app and the search bar when you first click on it. Though, it does have its plus’s that the dark mode on google CAN’T provide such as, it needs a password (I think, I don’t know how other phones work) or a finger print (I can guarantee that this is true! I use my fingerprint to use this) and if you go back to the app and want to erase everything you searched then you can! It gives you an option to do that. Great 👍 app overall just needs to have a little more of its own features and it needs to give features that will wow everyone a little more. FYI: My expectations are very high! ✅
Privacy in a labyrinth
by Hear a Door on 2018/07/18 07:57
This app is incredibly simplistic and easy to use for the most part. It blocks all cookies so any website that makes you have ‘5 more free articles’ for news sites will always be that way. The app itself is great except for some pretty big annoying cons. Pros: -You never have to clear browsing history -You can add password protection or even Touch ID so that when you leave the app no one but yourself can get back in. -When you leave the app it shows a normal black border completely hiding what page you were on -Fullscreen for a page Cons -You can only ever have one tab open -If you want to get back to a page, you’ll have to do a lot of back arrowing -Getting the status bar/search bar open is incredibly hard if it’s gone, which it will be almost always. Sometimes you’ll be stuck on pages for minutes trying to get to the search engine -Gmail doesn’t work at all Pro/Con -Most websites can’t tell you’re on a phone, but it also means it harder to get around on them If you are thinking of using this app for privacy, I suggest not since there are much better browsers out there. If you’re new to privacy protection on mobile I suggest using the duck duck go browser app.
Free - Secure - No frills or Ads
by bcandg on 2021/01/23 15:14
If like me you’ve tried countless other browsers in your efforts to tighten security, and you’re looking for FREE no frills browsing... you’ll want to check this out! There is a pro version which I’ve yet to check out because this browser is all I need. Setting your default search to DuckDuckGo and using this browser gives you peace of mind you’re not being tracked or leaving footprints. Security, by default is tight. I use an iPad and when I open the “Browser” it asks for thumbprint ID - very cool. Can’t stress this enough... no ads, no rent by week, month, year! The Pro version is a one time fee of $2.99. Will update review after I’ve used it.
This app is perfect for newspapers that only limit you to 5 articles
by Twofiveking on 2019/01/16 15:02
Perfect for what I use it for. Me personally I don’t care who tracks my online activity but with this app I read newspapers that limit me to 5 articles then they want you to join and pay a subscription this app makes it possible to read as many articles as you want. It’s crazy all this technology at the end of the day no matter what you do your being tracked it’s just the way life is these days. 5 stars for sure this app is one for the people thanks to whoever developed it.
This is a Great App
by 49ergoldminer on 2018/11/21 04:24
I never liked Safari, it just angered me. I’ve used this app since it was available on the iPhone 4, and once iPhone had setting changes, I realized how cluttered Safari was. I have never written a review on any other app, but this app is so good that I caved. I use it so much for using the internet that my brain has gone: “Internet? This button over here!” If I didn’t call people, and therefor have a use for the phone app, this would be one of the four exclusive apps on my bottom bar. This app is great and I cannot recommend it enough.
Simple but works great!
by Fat Brama on 2020/11/26 23:35
I found this app when looking for a Safari replacement. For some reason, Safari kept reloading webpages every 3 min. Due to compatibility issue with my ancient iPad version, popular web browser such as Chrome, Mozilla, Microsoft Edge is not an option. Then, I came across this browser, and this eliminated the reloading problem. I think due to its simple design, this browser loads pages reasonably fast. The search results are also quite relevant. It also has a back button! On the contrary, Dolphin has no back button.
Wow it really works!!
by I>3me101 on 2018/07/03 14:54
I always have to look up weird medical questions and some of them can be really embarrassing. Everyone says I’m so protective of my phone and that’s why! Anyway, now I don’t even have to worry about giving my phone to someone and them stumbling on awkward questions like: I’m not pregnant am I? Yes, I’ll have to give it a five stars because no one will suspect anything seeing it in one of my folders, because the name is just browser. THANK YOU FOR MAKING SUCH A SAFE BROWSING AREA!!

Functionality supports privacy
by poalo121213 on 2020/04/24 08:45
There are a few features that I prefer while using this app that I think people looking for a similar product are looking for. Briefly: 1. Navigating away from the browser is accompanied by a password protected re-entry to continue browsing, this feature is timed which is great but it is brief. If you haven’t saved the page you are looking at an urgent phone call or text message might make you lose your spot. 2. The search bar does not saved visited webpages. There is nowhere to review pages that have been visited in the past unless you have saved it in your password protected favorites. 3. Favorites are password protected. My only suggestion would be adding one thing. This app is otherwise perfect. The option to toggle how long it holds your current browsing page before reset would be great. Instead of 30 seconds to 1 min. Maybe the option to hold it for 5 would be great.

This thing is dangerous
by JJPANDA01 on 2019/11/05 18:24
At first it was working perfectly for what I was using it for and then what happened was that a pop up call box came up and it did not stop when you pressed cancel, then I tried turning it of and it didn’t work then I tried to turn it off completely and the screen was frozen and even if you pressed the call button it would still pop up it got so bad it got to the point that I had to call my sister, luckily she was able to restart it, that’s my story with this HORRIBLE APP!!!!!!!!!I hope none of you go through what did and you may think that I am over reacting bot it was scary because I have had this device for less than a year
Surprisingly pleased.
by Wollen_Kitten on 2019/09/05 17:43
I’ve used private browsers before for local newspaper sites that require an outrageous monthly fee. I’d be happy to pay the fee if newspapers would stop biased reporting, but that’s unlikely. It takes some getting used to, as you have to start over if you click out of the app, but I haven’t run into any issues whatsoever with it otherwise. It does what Google Chrome’s private browsing cannot and for that I’m eternally grateful.
Really Great App
by @Lanarosek on 2018/11/04 05:37
I’ve been using this app for a while, but the only problem I’ve had with it recently is saving images (like on Google). When saving an image from Google Images, the app just crashes and I go back to my homescreen. Upon opening the app again, I don’t have the option to go back to my last session. I usually just use this instead of Safari or Google because it saves me the time of getting rid of the clutter. I really love this app, but I just hope the image issue gets fixed!
Excellent lv. 3 Security Browser! Recommended.
by codypmack on 2017/12/02 23:07
Confirmed this app runs smoothly a 4th gen iPad and an iPhone 6s. When you lock the screen or switch apps even for a moment, it goes to the home screen. This is made for intentional uses, and doesn't not make a friendly primary browser (unless you're extremely privacy conscious). My suggestion is use the Firefox app duo (normal / incognito) for lv. 1 & 2, this for uses beyond those.
If you don’t want anybody find out you watch vore
by tf2-yung-plague on 2018/01/18 07:02
Simplistic, clean, and has an option that blocks pop ups (as you can imagine, incredibly useful when you are browsing porn and three tabs about your iphone got a virus open at the same time). I would recommend this over any other browsers out there if your goal is simply to browse privately.
Good app but it needs few adjustments
by Sister Friede on 2018/07/07 05:52
It’s a good internet browser app, but the option is somewhat limited. I like an idea about keeping the “Browser” simple. I missed couple features for internet browser. 1) It has no “Open in new tab”. 2) No side swipe to go back or forth in web page (for sake of better convenience). 3) Homepage. It can be access with “in app purchase” for $2.99. However I don’t know if it’s possible to change the homepage to preferred website.
Overall good app but needs two changes
by SwissArmyDev on 2021/03/27 14:58
1. It would be helpful to have the app auto replace dots with spaces in the search line before trying to search. They are next to each other on the keyboard and it’s easy to hit a dot instead of a space. If the app would to that replacement it would save having to enter the search string again. 2. The search engine setting reverts to default frequently, not remembering where the user set it.
No Privacy!
by Aboo Adam on 2019/08/27 06:24
Years using this for my porn, great tool for that of you have children and you don’t want them to see that, but today I opened Safari app and same page I was on early morning same page with adult material that I would never ever see on Safari app. It came up quickly and left and this is not the first time but for an iPhone10 X plus This is weak technology
Browser
by Flyinjeep on 2019/10/02 18:43
I’ve got about all the browsing apps or at least tried them. I think think this is the best. Browse the internet in privacy. All you’re browsing deleted when you are done each session of browsing. You should at least try it if your looking for a internet browser. I think you’ll like it. I do.
Good- but some bugs
by iratestufffff on 2021/02/23 13:25
A recent bug has appeared where it keeps resetting my settings, beyond just bookmarks. As an example the default search engine is Bing. I prefer Google so I change it to that in the settings. In about a day or two it always defaults back to Bing. Super frustrating to have to go into settings over and over again. Otherwise, the app works well, but some recent updates have been annoying.
Version 14 is a mess! Back to v 11.1 for me...
by Tzdle on 2021/03/25 15:24
I’m not sure WHAT the developers’ motivation was for the update to version 14, but it definitely has NOTHING to do with function or utility. I’ve given up and reverted to version 11.1 (otherwise known as “Private Browsing White”). To revert: Pony up $3 and download Private Browsing White from the App Store. It appears to be exactly the same as the black version (this one), before the update to v14. It’s not been updated for three years, still on v11.1. The White version works perfectly, exactly as I’ve been accustomed to using for the past few years. And devs... PLEEEEASE don’t update the Private Browsing White app!!!!
Great Simple Private Browser
by Jkgagne808 on 2018/06/23 23:44
The title explains it all. Just a simple private browser with out all the complicated syncing options and setup. I am still able to save my bookmarks and they are protected by Touch ID. Please keep it simple and don’t start complicating things with more options. Simple at times is better as more options opens up products to more threats. Thank you
Really good. Get this one, not that orange one :P
by Azami🍜 on 2017/10/17 20:59
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this app, no ads, no fake stuff. The only thing I would recommend is that you add a forward/back button. Sometimes when I click on links I can't go back to the previous page, so I have to search all over again. Great app! <3
Use to be great - now it’s useless
by SpaceForThePoppa on 2021/03/04 11:59
It was a great privacy browser. Simple interface, easy to use. Since the most recent updates, bookmarks constantly get deleted. There’s a “fix” to store them in the cloud - I do not want to store them anywhere but on my iPad. That’s kind of the point of privacy. Also - trying to re-bookmark web sites, the “+” sign sometimes, randomly disappears. So after deleting the bookmarks, you can’t add them back. The first glitch wiped out about 40-50 bookmarks, the second time it wiped out a out 10. The last, and I do mean last time (because I am uninstalling it) it got 3.
Simple Free Fast Clears browsing history
by Skulljagger on 2019/05/09 14:16
It’s such a simple browsing app that really beats Safari’s privacy mode. It’s fast it’s simple and it clears all data making it easy for you to search up as many articles you want on money grabbing websites. I love it but I wish it would ask for my password or Touch ID as soon as I log back into the app
Great App, but has limited Bookmarks
by FEENICKS on 2020/03/05 06:33
Needs to be updated, long over due!!! Needs the option to always be able to Restore Last Session. Sometimes the Last Session is lost for good! Also, when you reach the limit of Bookmarks, you have to delete previous Bookmarks to save more. Same with Folders. Please fix this, and provide the ability to have more Bookmarks and Folders!!!
As Good As Advertised!
by David from W. PA on 2018/01/05 23:07
I just started using this today. It is so simple that at first I was looking for more necessary input when it wasn't needed. Either input your URL or key in your search criteria in the URL field and away you go. One thing that is not obvious is you need to tap the upper left blank field (to the left of the URL bar) to add your bookmarks.
Pretty good, but one small problem (Fixed).
by IPTuser on 2018/02/26 18:57
Haven't used it much lately, but the issue I had is fixed. Will be trying it out more. Original review from about 7 years ago below. Original review: Good concept. The one part I don't like though is having to scroll all the way to the top of the page to open the status bar. Fix this, and four stars, easy.
Great browser
by drjohn05 on 2020/10/01 17:54
I lost the bookmark star on chrome for my iPad. I couldn’t get it back and couldn’t update chrome. Fed up I looked for solutions. I tried several other browsers but they all lacked what I needed. One couldn’t even play the Asian drama videos I look at. Now I have everything I need plus security and anonymous browsing. Perfection!!!
Does the job
by fruitypoundcake on 2021/02/20 15:30
The latest update fixed the previous issues about pages not loading and bookmarks not saving. Previous review: App worked great before I downloaded the latest update. Now no web pages will load. Refreshing doesn’t bring the page update. Don’t update!
Perfection
by /-/-/-\-\-\ on 2019/04/02 20:09
Gives all the privacy you need you can enable face/finger id for entering in the and your bookmarks. You have a built in ad block and can switch from normal mode to desktop mode. Wish it allowed flash players on it though. Other than that and seeing your history for your current session it’s PERFECT!
Trying it out
by hardlysentient on 2017/09/19 12:13
So far so good. I'm digging it and it does what it says it does. It makes me feel a little more secure about my browsing. I've been using it to search up flights, without those pesky observances where they up the prices of flights simply because I am viewing ticket prices...
Love it
by Guest Mill Pond on 2017/12/18 01:25
First off I hate Apple reviews after I completed my review and submitted it it said my nickname have been taken seven times About the proper what's not to like totally private somebody walks in everything is right I have her I always save my website before I start doing a video so if I have to turn it off I can go back to it
As advertised
by Begin to paying on 2018/11/01 21:08
Does exactly what it says. Just don't forget you were using Browser and not your other apps, because if you forget and go to another screen, because when you come back,as far as browser is concerned it's a whole New World, And you've never met. Kind of like that Groundhog Day movie… LOL
Pros and cons
by addy.31 on 2017/09/30 17:19
This app is awesome it's an app that lets you search any thing and not have a search history. The only bad thing is if you open an other app it won't save what you're doing. So if you get a notification and you're watching a video and you click on the notification you won't be able to finish your video.
Love it
by JWolfePak on 2018/02/01 00:46
Just downloaded this browser and I already love it. I value my privacy and feel safer with this. It allows you to control who uses your browser and an easy way to go back to your sessions or delete them right away. Thanks for creating such a private and smart browser!!!
Not fancy but works as advertised...
by Gpod52 on 2017/09/16 14:03
This is not a glitzy app by any stretch, but I am satisfied with performance. By keeping it simple, adverse online stumbling blocks can be obviated. Update: I can't see the top header control options. Needs a settings option. I don't see why tabs can't be an option. Otherwise, it's quite good.
Great
by Jojo3406 on 2017/11/19 05:30
People are complaining that there is no back button. You just need to turn your screen sideways and then up right again, the home button will come back. One complaint I have is whenever I try to save an image from google, the app crashes.
A truly private experience
by CsmtcSrgnMd on 2017/09/25 01:11
The best securely most private browser available. It's easy to use and very private. Only pitfall is if you must open an app or leave the browser for any reason, you cannot just go back to where you left off. (for example; you just received a notification that you have a new email)
Free VPN!
by Slackmore on 2018/01/26 10:10
An app offering the service of a VPN for FREE as long as your using this browser....this browser? This 🖕🏻🤦🏻‍♂️ browser without bookmarks or multitabs function or accessibility to the most basic of features. Oh well. I'll hold on to this browser for the day I need to slowly, singularly fumble through an anonymous site unable to long press or toolbar or hotkey anything. The VPN is ALL this browser has but it even looks and feels incomplete without
Used to be 5-star
by R. Maurer on 2019/07/16 15:14
Starting today, the entire app freezes when I try to type in the top search bar. And, it no longer “launches clean”, with just a simple search tab in the middle like your screenshot. The screen is now filled with shortcuts to websites. Put it back the way it was, I’ll revise to 5-stars. And BTW, I see no way to contact you personally, or I would not have gone public with a middling rating.
It doesn't crash and reload page like Safari!!!
by Randell2 on 2018/12/05 05:52
I'm using an older iPad mini that cannot update the iOS higher than v9.3.5. Safari is miserable to use with all the crashing and reloading. This browser really seems to do well. Thank you
why do my bookmarks keep clearing themselves??
by Zigg zagg 0982489 on 2021/02/02 13:25
this is a really great app but every so often (only since this most recent update, Jan 2021) my entire bookmarks are cleared like the app has restarted, it's really problematic and I'd appreciate if you guys could fix that. otherwise this is a great browser, hopefully in the next update it will fix but for now im just screenshotting and saving my bookmarks to photos so i don't forget them.
Amazing! Simple Amazing!
by J.Castor on 2018/10/02 17:23
I just like many people don’t write reviews, but with this app I felt compelled to. It works like it’s supposed to and the fact that you need to re-authenticate to continue with your previous browsing session in the even someone gets your phone is just great thinking!
Perfect
by Dulcineawitz on 2018/10/07 05:01
Unlike almost every other application designed for browser, (google, chrome, etc.) This gives you the option to clear your history or keep it by just going to the app again.
Lovin' it!
by prsphn23 on 2017/11/08 12:26
I accidentally deleted my Bing search engine so I went looking for it. I saw this private search engine among the suggestions. The reviews were positive except there were concerns about the fact there was no back arrow. No biggie. I downloaded the app. GREAT search engine! So glad I found it. Thank you!
Nearly all good!
by Merikr on 2017/10/30 21:09
Very fast and easy to use! Only down side and I can see why it is so, is the fact that if you leave the app, it closes everything and you can not get back to where you were without completely starting over.
