Ghostery helps protect you while you browse by minimizing 3rd-party access to your data through trackers. And at only 5.6 MB, Ghostery runs a lot lighter than other browser solutions, saving your device battery life.

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.

Quick But Painful to Use


It is a quick little browser. Very minimalistic in look, feel and operation and features.
The main issues I have with it so far(1 days use) are:
1. It appears to block ads but it constantly shows that there are new items blocked and the indication badge won't disappear after looking at the notifications.
2. It crashes often for me usually after typing something into a value box, just as I minimize the keyboard, then upon restart it opens to a totally different tab than it crashed on.
3. I continually get a Cannot Connect error when doing a refresh that is internal to the page, then it won't allow me to go back or anything, I am forced to shut it down manually.
4. It will lock up while using a drop down menu that is supposed to open a small window for you to enter data into.
5. The tabs are not user friendly.

These are just the main issues that have been annoying enough for me to stop using the app and look for an alternative.
It is like the title says. Quick, but painful to use.

Blocks in app ads, tracking on wifi

Anonymous User 23579

This is an excellent app that will block ads and online tracking. Highly recommended. To block ads and tracking in apps, you must use the wifi protection feature and configure it separately for each wifi network you connect to. Simple instructions in the app.

Latest version fixes the wifi protection problems, so thank you developers for the fixes.

Good But Could Be Better


Does what it’s built to do well, but there is room for improvement.

Sometimes the UI doesn’t respond taps meant to open and close tabs. Tapping the URL line to select all is similarly awkward. Tapping and holding a link to get the pop up options (like open in new tab) often results in the current tab just navigating to the tapped link. Occasional crashes. And I WISH there was an option to block all trackers immediately and forever instead of swatting at them one at a time! Seems like a no-brainer. PLEASE ADD THIS!

Otherwise great job!
