Description & Details


Fast & always private. Automatically block ads & trackers w the privacy browser

Browse like no one’s watching. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of ads and online trackers — from the moment you launch it to the second you leave it. Easily erase your history, passwords and cookies, so you won’t get followed by things like unwanted ads.

“Private browsing” on most browsers isn’t comprehensive or easy to use. Focus is next-level privacy that’s free, always on and always on your side — because it’s backed by Mozilla, the non-profit that fights for your rights on the Web.

AUTOMATIC PRIVACY
• Blocks a wide range of common Web trackers without any settings to set
• Easily erases your history — no passwords, no cookies, no trackers

BROWSE FASTER
• By removing trackers and ads, Web pages may require less data and load faster

MADE BY MOZILLA
• We believe everyone should have control over their lives online. That’s what we’ve been fighting for since 1998.

  • Most popular Android apps this week: Firefox Focus, Sonic, KingRoot, and more!

    (a month ago)

    The Google Play Store is filled with many apps, which is great for consumer selection, but can often make app discovery difficult. Some apps just never make it to our homescreen. That's why we've compiled a list of this weeks hottest Android apps that have most likely gone under the radar or are so

It's incredibly faster compared to my default browser. However, I'm still wondering how could I open a new tab. Seems there's no option to do that. You could only be able to browse with just one tab at a time. Overall, a good adblocking browser and fast webpage loader; the only thing that's missing is the one that I've mentioned. I think this is still in the developing stage but I'm looking forward for future updates to see if issues would be resolved.

Need to have auto slave when you type on the home screen. Swype doesn't work for some reason. Also i know it's am anonymous web browser but the ability to open a new tab or two would be cool. I'm looking up a new medication at the doctors and I had a page open and wanted to look up another term but didn't want to lose the site I was on to keep reading. I didn't think about that till i was just in this situation. It's not a deal breaker, I'm still using this app cause i other this kind of thing on my phone. It would be nice to have that option though.

Firefox Focus: The Privacy Browser is FAST... REALLY FAST! Admittedly, I use this as a secondary browser to the "regular" Firefox browser - but because Firefox Focus: The Privacy Browser works so well, I find myself using it more and more. If you don't rely on synchronized bookmarks (the primary reason I personally continue to use the "regular" version of Firefox), then THIS is the browser you want installed on your mobile device... But if you rely on synchronized bookmarks (and other data), then you'll probably want to wait until they update "regular" Firefox with this sort of performance.

Best default browser experience. No more having 100 tabs open from opening links from various apps. And almost all your traces are erased. Pages load way faster because dozens (sometimes hundreds!) of useless scripts are being blocked.

Focus is truly an amazing product from the Mozilla family. For people who commented of getting a tab view and bookmark, just think of what the purpose of this browser and this is not designed for a day to day browsing experience..Please think for a bit before commenting and complaining.. understand the purpose of this browser..i would say thanks to the Mozilla team for such a great product.

Really proud to see such a great app from non-profit Mozilla! Not only does it raise consciousness amongst users about privacy, but also it acts as a solid no compromise choice to the privacy concerned. I'm inspired by Mozilla's mission... Coming from the IRL podcast about net neutrality.

I like this much more now that I've used it to go to a couple websites without having to log in and still be able to see everything. Still wish it had at least some bookmarks, but it does give a few choices of sites you've gone to.
Steve 5
This is the best app I never knew I needed. Set it to your default browser and links from other apps, like Reddit or Twitter, open super fast. Not your daily driver for browsing the web, but used as intended it will be your new favorite app.

So far I like it, just need to use it a lot more to truly gauge the app's effectiveness. I am curious to see what kind..really more of.."how well" Firefox Focus "blocks ads". I'm really digging the small arse size of dis APK.📲 Def. think Kudos is deserved thus far! Was/I am hoping this app may also help to re-kindle my long lost LOVE for Firefox...👍 🐺 🌐
Nanda 5
Very nice, small and effective package. I find most browsers too heavy in size (looking at you, chrome) and prefer to use small browsers. The only thing that I miss in this is tabbed browsing

Fast and secure. What else do you really need? I'd hate to see this app bloat to include unimportant features.
