Late last year, Firefox introduced a private browser called Firefox Focus. The browser, by default, is designed to block ads and trackers, and to erase browsing history on exit. Today, Firefox announced the launch of Firefox Focus for Android with added functionality. The browser was launched to iOS in November last year.
Firefox Focus is designed more for private browsing, for quick searches, or direct visits to URLs without having to worry about whether your session is being tracked. Firefox Focus also reminds you to erase your history, when it’s running in the background, just by tapping on the notification.
In today’s digital world, users have lost control over their web activities, which are followed everywhere across sites, devices and accounts. Internet privacy has become a big challenge, and Firefox Focus plays a key role when it comes to a user’s privacy and security.
Focus is intended to provide a better private browsing experience on Apple and Android devices. Firefox Focus is designed for the times when you don’t want to leave a record on your visit. There are times you may be looking for sensitive information. For example: if you are looking for a gift to someone special or something that you may want to keep it private. You can browse with confidence that you can instantly erase your session with a single tap without even getting into the menu bar.
Firefox focus can be used as a standalone browser or as a content blocker for Safari on supported iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. It easily erases browsing history, password and other cookies, and prevents unnecessary advertisements from following you on the web. In a general scenario, trackers are used on the web, often resulting in the web page being slow. Focus blocks these trackers and offer a better experience to users.
If you want to experience private, tracking-free browsing then sign up for Firefox Focus just by entering the website address in the search field. It is a default setting to block many of the trackers that follow you around the web. You don’t need to change privacy or cookie settings. It is available in the App Store and Google Play Store as a free download.
