The Epic Privacy Browser is the first web browser built on Chromium (like Google’s Chrome browser) engineered to protect your privacy. Epic is in always-on “private browsing mode”, so on close of the app, all browsing data is deleted (while you’re browsing as little as possible is stored). The app has removed all Google tracking and blocks hundreds of other companies from tracking you. If you turn on the tool’s encrypted proxy, you have protection from snooping by hackers, trackers, your ISP, government, and employer as well.
“We believe that you should not have to trust us with your data – rather we should not have access to your data to the maximum extent possible. For this reason, the software does not use any web services. Autofill in the Epic Privacy Browser is done via a local database so the tool never sends what you type in the address bar to any server. The app never records your history except for tab forward/back so that after a tab is closed, there is no record on your system of having visited that particular web page (that site may have stored cookies to log you in which are deleted upon closing the app). The tool’s proxy does not log anything — though it is not private-by-design unlike the TOR network — we continue to use encrypted proxy instead of TOR because it’s much much faster and more secure (2-3% of TOR’s exit nodes have been found to be malicious).”
The app blocks fingerprinting scripts and functions like image canvas data access to protect you which no browser extension can do. There is no combination of settings changes and browser addons which provides the same level of protection, let alone the ease and speed of use that the program does. Unfortunately, any browser addon has access to your entire browsing and search history and while many may protect you from some trackers, they often collect and sell your data to others — so your browser addons may be reducing your privacy and security rather than enhancing.
Epic PrivacyBrowser is a private browser that’s fast, simple and actually works. When you’re using the tool ith encrypted proxy on, your data is encrypted and hidden from the government, from your ISP, from Google, from your employer, and from hundreds of data collectors. On the close of the app, there’s no easily accessible record of your browsing history left on your computer. “We believe what you browse & search should always be private”.
