The Best Browser For Privacy

There is a lot of confusion in the private browser space about who offers the best private browser or the best way to browse privately.

Words like trackers, tunnel, double encryption are being used to give the appearance of “private and secure” browsing.

Here are the Pros and Cons of the top private browsing solutions:

VPN

PROS

  • You can use any browser
  • You can unload and download content

CONS

  • User is not private
  • Browsing history and cookies are left on device
  • Can get a virus
  • Subscription required

Brave Browser

PROS

  • Fast
  • Ad free
  • Free

CONS

  • Not private
  • Browsing history and cookies left on device
  • Can get a virus
  • Uses Google’s Chromium Browser

Tor Browser

PROS

  • IP address is hidden
  • Access the Dark Web
  • Free

CONS

  • Extremely slow
  • Many sites do not work
  • A haven for unsavory characters
  • No control on who is seeing your data
  • DEFINITELY NOT virus free

TraceFree Browser

PROS

  • Fast
  • COMPLETELY anonymous
  • Private search engine and browser in one
  • No browsing history, cookies or data EVER on device
  • Device is hidden when browsing
  • Virus free browsing
  • Can be used as a standalone browser OR with Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Brave

CONS

  • Cannot upload or download any content
  • Only available for Windows OS
  • Subscription required

The #1 difference between all of them is that TraceFree is a remote browser, meaning the browser doesn’t run on your computer but in the cloud.

This enables the user’s computer to be isolated when browsing and offering a completely anonymous and virus free  browsing session.

FYI Even if you use a VPN with Tor or Brave, the browser is still running on your computer. which does NOT make you completely private or secure.
