Browse the Internet in private without leaving a trace of history on your computer. Ephemeral is a stripped down private browser that's perfect for avoiding persistent cookies or web trackers. Close the window and all traces of your browsing are removed from your device.
Ephemeral protects you in five key ways:
1?? Always incognito. From the second you open an Ephemeral window until you close it (or hit the Erase button), Ephemeral is in private browsing mode. That means history, cookies, local storage, passwords, etc. are all blown away as soon as you leave.
2?? Sandboxed. Each window uses a separate instance of the browser engine, domains inside each window are rendered using different processes, and the engine’s processes are sandboxed from one another to keep you safe. Sign into a service in one window, and sites in other windows will have no idea.
3?? No third-party cookies. Ephemeral blocks cookies from third-party sources, which cuts down on advertising cookies and other unwanted forms of cross-site tracking.
4?? No telemetry. Ephemeral does not touch the network until you explicitly load a web page or perform a search. Even then, no usage data is ever collected—I have no idea what you do with Ephemeral, and I don't want to know!
5??? Ephemeral uses DuckDuckGo—the search engine that doesn’t track you—by default to avoid as much Google tracking as possible. You can also choose StartPage.com from the menu if that’s your preference, or even set your own entirely custom search engine.
