We live in a connected world. When you browse the web, your data leaves a digital footprint that is connected by tracking technologies that help companies build a profile about you. This profile details how you interact with their sites and those of their competitors, allowing them to optimize communications and site experience to reach you - and others like you - at the right place, at the right time.

Ghostery helps you clean up, speed up, and lock down your browsing experience.

Speed boost


Regularly use a news site which was getting slower and repeatedly crashing because of the huge number of trackers. With Ghostery it feels like my I-pad has had a boost the site is so fast. Without the trackers adverts and auto start videos seem to have stopped as well. Only problem is when in the browser I can't slide sidewards to shift backwards or forwards as I can in Safari.



I am a matched bettor, so I need to stop the bookies tracking me to see who I am betting with, and more importantly who I am laying my bets off with.
This does the job 100% without fuss and I would not be without it and it's free, but I would pay for it if the charged without a doubt.
5 stars from me all the way.



Installed this after reading about some trackers clumsily key logging.

And it is great!

Has the benefit of speeding up some sites too.

A few UI changes would really let me forget about safari though

Swiping the screen from the left/right to go forwards/backwards (as someone else mentioned)

Tabs are a little fiddly on iPhone 6S

Scrolling doesn’t quite behave like safari, sometimes I flick a page down and press a finger to bring it to a stop. In safari I can leave my finger pressed but in Ghosterly it will bring up a menu in front of what I’m reading
