Today, most web browsers have private-browsing modes, in which they temporarily desist from recording the user's browsing history. But data accessed during private browsing sessions can still end up tucked away in a computer's memory, where a sufficiently motivated attacker could retrieve it. This week, at the Network and Distributed Systems Security Symposium, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Harvard University presented a paper describing a new system, dubbed Veil, that makes private browsing more private. Veil would provide added protections to people using shared computers in offices, hotel business centers, or university computing centers, and it can be used in conjunction with existing private-browsing systems and with anonymity networks such as Tor, which was designed to protect the identity of web users living under repressive regimes. "Veil was motivated by all this research that was done previously in the security … [Read more...] about Private Browsing Gets More Private: New System Patches Security Holes Left Open By Web Browsers’ Private-Browsing
Tor like browser
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Tor's hidden services let users publish web sites and other services without needing to reveal the location of the site. Individuals also use Tor for socially sensitive communication: chat rooms and web forums for rape and abuse survivors, or people with illnesses. Journalists use Tor to communicate more safely with whistleblowers and dissidents. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) use … [Read more...] about Tor Browser

Do you want to make sure your online activities are kept private and leave no trace inside your mobile device? If you are after a secure browser, Android is a very good platform to be on. As the world's most popular operating system, it does have the biggest malware problem in mobile, but that only urges enterprising developers to compete with protection software. Antivirus apps, malware cleaners, data backup, encryption - they are in abundance in the Google Play store. As for secure browsers, there's many of them too. Too many, in fact, so consider the five choices we've lined up a starting point for getting into the field. Their features include always-on incognito mode and data clearing capabilities, topped off with stuff like Tor protocol support, multi-threading, fraud protection, Do Not Track support, user agent cloaking, and everything else short of a nuclear launch button. 5 secure browsers for Android 5 secure browsers for Android 1.
