WHAT ARE TRACKERS?
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.
What's New in Version 1.5.3
- Added Share menu option
- Improved context menu behavior
- Bug fixes
Declutterer that does its job
Enables looking at a web site so loaded down with ads that you could fall asleep waiting for a page to load under Safari. Clears the junk away - you're paying for the bandwidth for this - and shows you how much more ad overhead there is than content, if you care to look.
Wifi protection issues w/ iOS 10
Ever since updating to iOS 10, ghostery wifi protection (PAC file in autoconfig) is causing problems for me with Apple AppStore. Manually updating apps now shows them downloading 3 or 4 times before finally installing. The circular download indicator will complete, then drop back down, download again, sometimes dropping back down before completing and finally downloading and installing. Also, cannot access the app review screen with the wifi protection enabled. This is on iPhone 6.
Kudos to the hard working dev team for listening to feedback and adding a convenient context menu share button. This browser is perfection.
Feature request: night mode (white text on black background) and/or a black address bar similar to Safari incognito mode.
Thank you for an excellent browser.
