4 Reasons Why You Need A Private Browser
The internet is broken. Or, more accurately, the current system that allows us to access the internet is broken. Browsers and social media platforms are “free” because they track and sell your data. Cyber criminals are working out increasingly innovative ways to get around security protocols and steal our personal information. It seems like there’s a major hack or data breach at least once a month.
But what if it didn’t have to be that way? Tenta has created a truly private browser to protect users against theft, censorship, and spying of all kinds: from ISPs, government, and cyber criminals. Here are four reasons why you need a private browser, regardless of what you’re doing online.
1. Advertisers are tracking you
Ever googled something, only to have it show up in an ad on Instagram? It’s a jarring thing the first time it happens. And it happens because advertisers are always tracking you, either through their own advertisements or through widgets installed by social media platforms. And even people who aren’t signed up for social media are being tracked by these widgets, so not being a member of Facebook won’t protect you.
If you don’t like the idea of all of this information being collected and stored and sold — and take a minute to really think about what you do online, even if you feel you don’t have anything to hide — then a private browser like Tenta’s a great option.
2. Your ISP knows everything you do
In addition to advertisers, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is tracking and storing everything you do online, even when you’re in “incognito” or “private browsing” mode. But with a private Android browser like Tenta’s, your ISP can’t see what you’re doing. That’s because the Tenta private browser comes with a built-in Virtual Private Network (VPN), which automatically encrypts all of your data going in and out. That means no one — not even your ISP — can see what you’re doing online.
It’s also worth noting that if an ISP has your data, they can hand it over to the government. Just something to think about.
3. Public Wi-Fi is never safe
Public Wi-Fi — meaning any network that a lot of people can connect to easily, even if it’s password-protected — is never secure. Public Wi-Fi is like a treasure-trove for cyber criminals, who can either infect the network with malware, intercept your specific data stream, or grab a whole bunch of data and then sort through it for valuable pieces later.
But with Tenta’s VPN browser, all of your data is automatically encrypted. When you’re using a private browser, public Wi-Fi is safe again.
4. Not every site is secure yet
As another layer of security, Tenta’s private browser also comes with built-in HTTPS Everywhere. HTTPS Everywhere was co-created by The Tor Project and the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) in response to the often shoddy attempts at encryption offered by major websites. EFF and Tor found that many sites default to HTTP even on HTTPS supported websites. HTTPS Everywhere rewrites those requests on all sites that support HTTPS – overriding any automated scripts that may or may not encrypt your connection.
The internet isn't going anywhere. But the way we use the internet — and the structure of the internet itself — needs to change if it’s going to be sustainable and safe as we move forward. And Tenta’s private browser is here to ensure that it does just that.Share this post
