Surfing web on a public network like open Wi-Fi can often be problematic. There are lots of trust and security issues and therefore opening your personal accounts on such networks can often lead to hacking of accounts. Even in your own company, each and every page of your web surfing is tracked and when someone’s watching you, you can’t even walk normally; so browsing normally is just out of question. Moreover, you’d have heard about many YouTube videos that are blocked in some countries. In fact, there are some ‘normal’ songs that are restricted any access for some unknown reasons. So to get out of that restricted-access zone, it’s not advisable to go and settle in a safe country where you can enjoy hassle-free browsing. But you still need to find a remedy; a remedy that is safe, secure and affordable. But where will you find it?

I think I have a solution for you. Private Browser is the recently released iOS app that has been developed by Simplex Solutions. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.1 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

Private Browser, as the name says, is a secure browser which encrypts all the data you browse. So each and every bit of data whether input or output goes through a secure tunnel which is hidden from the maps of hackers across the world. So now you can even afford to go for money transactions on such “risky” networks. The technology this app uses for encryption is similar to “VPN Unlimited” which is another app run by them for safe browsing. What’s more interesting is that your identity is always “hidden” behind curtains and you’re nothing but an “anonymous” traveller who just happened to cross the forest.

Now what I told you about restricted-access has also been rectified here. You can choose from a list of servers of different countries and therefore you always have an option to ‘escape’ now. On the security front, you can even use passwords or pattern locks to keep your browser and data from falling in wrong hands.

The browser itself is very intuitive and user friendly. With a well-designed layout that is easy to navigate and with an even easier bookmark menu to manage, it’s quick to adapt to your needs. Multi-tasking takes a new dimension here when you can open more than 25 tabs simultaneously. So don’t just go for it because it’s safe and secure to browse; it qualifies for your default browser tab as well.

So what are you waiting for? The app is available for free download in the App Store and you can’t get a better deal than this one. Can you?

Pros: encrypted browsing; global server selection; anonymous surfing; access to region-restricted content; easy to navigate intuitive UI: local security options; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
