Maiar’s built-in ad blocker gets rid of the annoying and malicious ads and also blocks trackers like analytic scripts, tracking pixels and other methods of data collection. Choose your settings on a per-site or browser-wide basis. See how many ads and trackers are being blocked by Maiar every day by accessing the New Tab page.
Like the ad blocker, the tracker blocker helps pages load faster, saves your mobile data and battery and further protects you from malicious code. Beyond that, tracking protection simply guards your privacy because your personal data should not be given away or used without your consent
When you’re online, the characteristics of your device can be used by advertisers to create a “fingerprint” to follow you without consent. Currently Maiar protects against fingerprinting by preventing third party sites from accessing functionality frequently used to fingerprint users. This includes highly identifying parts of the Canvas, Web Audio and WebGL APIs, among others. These default settings can be changed through Maiar’s Safeguard interface, where users can disable these protections if needed.
Social media blocking means you are able to control how Facebook, Google, Twitter and Linkedin “inject” their code into third-party sites
We don’t track, collect, or share your private data. It’s none of our business. Our servers neither see nor store your browsing data – it stays private, on your devices, until you delete it.
Need even more? When you use Private Browsing, Maiar doesn’t remember your browsing data (like pages you visit, your search history, your AutoFill information, or cookies).
You can also use DuckDuckGo, a built-in search engine that doesn’t track you, to make your web searches private, too
