User privacy is a topic that has been discussed for a long time. In recent years, along with computer security, it has become a hot topic that never ceases to be topical. One of the resources most used by users to achieve some more privacy on the Internet are VPN networks, which allow to hide the origin of the user and its IP, although they are not infallible.
In any case, it never hurts to add an extra layer of protection to our daily navigation. Since today a good part of the same we do from our mobile device, it is logical to see projects like Tenta Browser, an Android web browser that incorporates its own VPN for better protection of your browsing data.
Keep in mind that the incognito mode of browsers does not protect as much as its name implies. Among users there are those who misunderstand what it means : they take it for absolute protection, when what it does to safeguard privacy is not to save browsing history or cookies.
In addition, incognito mode must choose between revealing your information or losing all the privacy features it incorporates: you can not save pages in favorites, you can not keep tabs open for later reference and if you enter your social networks will track your habits of navigation.
In favor of privacy and a good browsing experience
Using Tenta Browser does not have to give up privacy. From the manufacturer ensure that they do not keep your data, which gives them the ability to offer three features with which they try to differentiate themselves from the rest: the aforementioned built-in VPN, full data encryption and offline protection.
As for the VPN network itself, it is an authentic private network and not a proxy like Opera. For this they have been based on the OpenVPN protocol, with which it is possible to “mask” the origin of the user’s connection and its public IP, making it more difficult to trace it on the Internet. In addition, it has its own DNS servers and the default search engine is DuckDuckGo, a search engine famous for respecting user privacy.
As far as complete data encryption is concerned , the service says that you do not know at any time what you are visiting. This is nothing new, as many developers and manufacturers of different products generate an encryption key exclusively for you and then ensure that they ignore what you do (see the Telegram case and the criticism they received for accommodating extremist groups Islamic).
And last but not least, offline protection of your data. To do so, Tenta Browser relies on a PIN code that you have to set the first time you open the application. Every time you want to use the browser you will have to enter your PIN, so it also protects you from prying eyes.
That said, this browser for Android seems to have all the ingredients to offer the user better privacy. For the tests that I have been able to do it complies with what it promises, so if you are looking for a solution that offers you privacy in your Android terminal, do not hesitate and give it a try.
