Description & Details


Get The Privacy Browser. Fast & always private from Firefox, a browser you trust

Browse like no one’s watching. The new Firefox Focus automatically blocks a wide range of 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.

    (10 days ago)

    If you’re an Android device owner, chances are you’re using Google’s Chrome for your most of your web browsing activities. After all, the app comes pre-installed on the majority of Android devices. Chrome is great and all, but at some point, you might find yourself wanting to try something else. Fo

  • Firefox Focus (review)

    (6 months ago)

    Firefox focus is a variant of the Firefox browser that provides much improved security features. It can be downloaded on Google play and IOS. Only needing ~7MB of storage, meaning that it is super light - at the expense of other features, which we'll come to later. Now when I first saw this, I th

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

    (8 months ago)

  • Chrome's incognito mode isn't as private as you might think - AndroidPIT

    (a month ago)

    There are many reasons why users may want to use the incognito mode on the Chrome browser, but did you know that it is not as private as you might think? Turns out, Chrome actually keeps a record of incognito mode activity and even stores the videos that you watched 'in private'.

Sick of story boards and want privacy with add blocking and lighting fast loading websites? No lies this app is freaking great. I'll only use Chrome for some stuff. But this within 30 seconds of setup, 2 website that have adds that were blocked and not saying blocked ad wonderful. I love you fire fox. Used to use you all the time. And I love this small sized wonderful Browser!

I love this privacy based browser! Chrome kept on sharing my search history products with my husband's Facebook and searching ads. It ruined surprises and was very invasive. I love the cute setup on the app, simple layout, and fast browsing. This is now my default browser, I recommend supporting Firefox.

My last review seems to have disappeared weirdly. Focus is sort of on the right track, but it misses a lot of functionality. But the worst thing is that it's letter through Google Search product ads and some others. The whole point of Focus I thought was for a ad-blocking slim version of Firefox. Apart from these annoyances, it's still nippy. Please guys, sort out your ad blocking though!

PLEASE FIX THE F@@@@@@ COPY AND PASTE IN THE ADDRESS BAR Newest iteration has issue copying from address bar when you've gotten there by searching. On many different sites, when you highlight the address to copy it, it reverts to your search term. Pretty frustrating.

Minimalist. For the love of the Goddess DO NOT ADD anything. Seriously. No tabs. No alerts. Nothing. If you guys even think of adding "functionality" or any other silicon valley buzzword. I swear I will send a zen master after you to slap you with a stick. If anything, REMOVE stuff. Please keep this updated but resist the urges. "What if we added this" No. "What if this was...." No. It works. Leave it alone, and water it every few weeks, I beg of you.

Could you work on the multiple tabs thing. So I could just close one? Bookmarks. Also, app isn't loading as well as before. Also would be great like if users could report ad on pages. I'm still seeing ads on some sites.

When I'm a almost finished filling out an extensive questionnaire, I don't expect that ALLOFASUDDEN, Firefox erases my browing history. It's almost like my network is being monitored, and I'm being personally irritated by an employee of Firefox. Boo. Sucks.

Great app for people who like the privacy but what I'm missing is 'open in a new background window' option. I often look through the news or search something and want to open a few windows in the background and easily switch between them (it keeps reloading which is annoying when u r used to chrome remembering the websites)

This browser is fantastic! I despise ads and media/corporate tracking. Could never get those adblocker apps to work on my phone. This app is everything I wanted and more, built in ad blocker, one touch history clear, web pages load up WAY faster, no BS redirect ads on some news sites, and more. Very happy with it! Google could learn from this... But they only care about profit so I doubt it.

Interface is nice, app is lightweight, ad blocker works fine. But I have two things that could be better: saving images sometimes is very annoying (the option disappears frequently). Also, the browser really should have tabs to improve user experience.

Absolutely terrible and unusable on medium and low strength connection. When charging a web page sometimes it becomes on a loop and won't allow charge any other page if the previously wasn't loaded fully..... And that happens even when on good WiFi strength signal...
