See What You Were Missing With Smartwebs’ Privacy Browser

If you are among the thousands of people who browse the internet while at work or in places where your access is somewhat restricted due to firewalls, pesky IT people (no offense to anyone), or simply because your country does not allow you to visit certain sites, your troubles are close to over thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member smart_desk. Privacy browser allows you to bypass any and all security measurements by redirecting your browsing experience by the magic of proxy surfing.

The app can do many things such as hide your IP address, makes your surfing experience entirely anonymous, allows for modifiable cookies, and provides you with a large list of proxy servers and multiple IP addresses among other things. The app also has a rather simple and easy to use interface, so you have to do very little to allow you to enjoy the web as it was meant to be. The dev does mention that streaming video is not supported unfortunately, and that the app contains ads to help pay for external server costs.

So, if you feel that you are missing out on important Facebook updates because of your company policy, now is your chance to get back on track. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you happen to try this out.

Studying in a college where social networking site like facebook is blocked ?
