Web browser is something we use on a daily basis without giving it much thought. When we get a new phone, it already comes with a pre-installed web browser, and we rarely think that we actually have options. What is it that we’re looking for in a browser? Normally, we want to be fast, safe, secure. But can a browser give us more than that? Can it also serve a higher purpose? It looks like Wild Browser for Android can.

What is Wild Browser?

Wild Browser is the first well-designed, private, and secure mobile browser that employs regular internet use to help endangered animals.

While users browse the web, revenue generated by Wild Browser's search ads accumulates in the background without interfering with their browsing experience. The entire amount is donated to wildlife and nature conservation charities.

Wild Browser donates its revenue to various animal welfare and conservation charities.

The browser was developed primarily to address three unmet needs in the Android market:

  • fast and secure browsing with simple controls
  • a way to direct real funds to underfunded conservation efforts
  • free browser supported by advertising that is ethical and respectful of the user's privacy.

How does Wild Browser work?

The browser includes a private search engine that respects user privacy and personal information. Use this to conduct web searches, and 100% of the revenue generated by the ads it displays is donated to animal charities.

Encryption protects all web activity, including an embedded video player. During internet sessions, the browser blocks popups and various forms of website tracking, and this functionality is implemented and activated automatically to ensure the user is protected as soon as they begin to use it. The browser also does not track user web history, leaving snooping websites and other prying eyes with no records to tap into. Personal information is never saved by the browser, and internet activity is never shared or sold to third parties.

Is Wild Browser safe?

In the near future, Wild Browser will also incorporate more measures to anonymize browsing, some of which it will be among the first mobile browsers to provide. This lightweight technology will anonymize everything that happens in the web browser without slowing it down or making it less usable.

In addition to privacy and security, Wild Browser is intended to be user-friendly. The layout has been carefully developed for individuals who want to scroll with one hand. This type of browsing has grown in popularity as users hold their phones for longer amounts of time during the day, but web browsers aren't necessarily responding by incorporating it into their design. Wild Browser aims to be a pioneer in this field as mobile devices continue to become a vital daily tool for both business and personal usage, something that frequently necessitates comfortable use when one hand is otherwise occupied.

How do I get Wild Browser?

Wild Browser is currently available for Android devices via the Google Play Store. Updates and stories from the world of wildlife conservation can be found on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
