Samsung Internet browser now on android
Samsung’s internet browser is now available on all Android phones running Android 5.0 and above. In the same update, Samsung Internet is also getting a built-in ad-tracking declutter/blocker. Users on other Android devices can find the Samsung Internet app in the Play Store or Galaxy Apps store. Previously, Samsung Internet was only available on Samsung devices and Google’s Nexus and Pixel devices.
The browser’s new extension blocks invisible trackers, allowing you to browse privately. You can toggle on the tracking blocker, or if you’re in Secret Mode, the blocker will already be enabled by default. The extension is powered by Disconnect, a privacy protection company, which already makes a similar ad-blocking extension for Samsung Internet.
With the new blocker, Samsung might have taken a cue from its competitors. Apple recently began restricting ad tracking on the mobile and desktop versions of Safari last month.
In this newest version, Samsung also announced the browser was getting a Night Mode and a High Contrast mode, for browsing with white text on a black background, to reduce eye strain.Also allows you to sync bookmarks from your Chrome browser using an extension. Users in the US will also be able to use Samsung Pay earn reward points in the browser. Now available in the Google Playstore.
