Epic Privacy Browser Android App

Epic Privacy Browser Android App

The Epic Privacy Browser, the first-ever Chromium-based browser engineered to protect your privacy online, is now available on Android! The Epic desktop browsers have been rated excellent by PC Magazine, awarded 5 out of 5 stars by CNET, and reviewed favorably in dozens of publications. Epic for Windows and Mac are used by millions of users around the world. Epic for Android is free with no in-app purchases.

Epic for Android includes many features:

  • Built on Chromium for Speed and Security.
  • File Vault. Encrypt any files you download or store on your Android device to protect your privacy.
  • AdBlocker. Install it for free via the Epic Extensions store. Epic was the first browser to block cryptomining scripts and now offers that protection to Android users. Epic's AdBlocker blocks ads, trackers, cryptomining scripts, popups and more.
  • Strict No-Logging Encrypted Proxy (VPN for the browser). Install our Proxy for free via the Epic Extensions store. Our Encrypted Proxy is essentially a free, unlimited VPN for the browser powered by hundreds of servers in eight countries including the United States🇺🇸, Canada🇨🇦, the United Kingdom🇬🇧, France🇫🇷, Germany🇩🇪, the Netherlands🇳🇱, Singapore🇸🇬 and India🇮🇳.
  • Audio Queue. On the road? Going for a run? Add webpages to Epic's audio queue and Epic will read the articles to you. Epic is the first-ever web browser to use Android's text-to-speech support for this accessibility feature.
  • Fingerprinting Protection. Epic blocks multiple fingerprinting techniques used by data collectors.
  • Encrypted Connection Preference. Epic tries to connect to websites using an encrypted connection whenever possible.
  • Always-On Private / Incognito Browsing. No browsing history.
  • Easy Menu-based "Close All Tabs & Delete Data" Option.
  • Granular, Site-Based Privacy Settings Controls. If a site isn't working, you can disable ad & tracker blocking (if you've installed adblocker) as well as other privacy protections. If a site is slow or questionable, you can disable scripts for a site (note this is an advanced setting that may suppress some or all site functionality depending on the website).
  • Tracker Count. See how many trackers are blocked in your browsing sessions when the AdBlocker is installed (typically thousands!).
  • Bookmark Support.
  • Password Saving Support. Optional for sites of your choice.
  • Reader Mode Button. Convert pages to text-only for easy reading.
  • Built-in Video Downloader. Download videos from many websites (YouTube is not supported due to Google policies).
  • Customized Dials on the New Tab Page. Set each dial on Epic's new tab page to one of your choice. No browsing history to report on your "most visited sites".

Try Epic. We think you'll love the faster, more private and convenient "Epic" browsing experience.
Epic has historically been one of the few if not the only browser to offer both security and comprehensive privacy out-of-the-box. Many other so-called privacy browsers often don't have an encrypted proxy built-in or use the TOR network which should be considered insecure as many nodes are run by hackers and other malicious agents. 

To configure other browsers for privacy often requires many untrustworthy extensions and multiple, complicated settings pages--all of which won't achieve the level of privacy to which Epic has been engineered.

We're proud to bring the same protections we've been providing for five years on PCs and Macs to Android users.

Epic Privacy Browser is a complete web browser that offers its users the ability to surf any website with total freedom, quickly and easily.

Anybody who regularly uses Android browsers will be surprised at how accessible the design of Epic Privacy Browser is: once you open the app you see a typical search bar that lets you look up or search for anything in a similar way to Google. Below the search bar there is a completely customizable menu where you can add direct links to pages you regularly visit.

One of the most interesting things that Epic Privacy Browser offers is the huge number of additional tools it offers to its users. Some of these functions let you download videos and audio files automatically from sites like YouTube or Twitter, surf in Incognito mode or control your music player so you can enjoy your favorite tunes while you surf the web.

Epic Privacy Browser is an interesting option in the Android internet browser market for anyone looking for an alternative to the ones offered by the big brands.
