The Epic Privacy Browser is the first web browser built on Chromium that engineered to protect your privacy. It is a user-friendly web browser that provides a clean environment, excellent browsing speed, andseveral powerful tools designed to protect your privacy while surfing on Internet.
Epic Privacy Browser is always-on “private browsing mode“, so on close of the app, all browsing data is deleted (while you’re browsing as little as possible is stored). The app has removed all Google tracking history and blocks hundreds of other companies from tracking you. If you turn on the tool’s encrypted proxy, you have protection from snooping by hackers, trackers, your ISP, government, and employer as well.
This software does not use any web services. Autofill in the Epic Privacy Browser is done via a local database so the tool never sends what you type in the address bar to any server. The tool’s proxy does not log anything — though it is not private-by-design unlike the TOR network — we continue to use the encrypted proxy instead of TOR because it’s much much faster and more secure.
The app blocks fingerprinting scripts and functions like image canvas data access to protect you which no browser extension can do. There is no combination of settings changes and browser addons that provides the same level of protection, let alone the ease and speed of use that the program does. Unfortunately, any browser addon has access to your entire browsing and search history and while many may protect you from some trackers, they often collect and sell your data to others — so your browser add-ons may be reducing your privacy and security rather than enhancing.
The web browser gives users the possibility to work with multiple tabs at the same time, create bookmarks, use hotkeys, zoom in or out, print the selected page, select the language, view a list with downloaded files, as well as import bookmarks and settings from Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Apart from the aforementioned features which are comprised of any similar powerful web browser, the tool puts a special emphasis on protecting sensitive data stored in your computer from unauthorized viewing.

Epic Browser FAQs
What do you believe in?
We believe that what you browse online should be private. What you browse is no one’s business but your own. It’s as simple as that. We believe privacy is essential to a free internet. When you’re under surveillance or being tracked, you think twice before investigating certain ideas or visiting certain websites. Through internalized self-censorship, this creates a kind of prison in our minds. We believe in free investigation, free minds, and a free internet. Privacy is essential to all of those ends.
Why should I worry about my browsing not being private?
Your browsing history reveal a lot about who you are. It’s often bundled with your offline data like your purchases,location, credit history, and personal identity and this data is sold on data exchanges every single day. It can and is being used to determine if you can get health or life insurance, what price to charge you at online stores, your job application status, and much more. Imagine visiting webpages on getting out of a speeding ticket one day then seeing your car insurance rates go up a few months later. Or visiting a site about diabetes treatments then applying for health insurance policies only to find all of them won’t cover “diabetes related illness.” Beyond that, privacy is essential to freedom of thought. If you know you’re under surveillance, you’re significantly less likely to research or express minority views. The goal of a governmental surveillance system is to effectively build “prisons in our minds.” Writers around the world are already reporting chilling self-censorship effects from government surveillance. Your browsing is personal and valuable, protect it.
Are companies really using my browsing history to determine if I get a job or health insurance or other things?
Yes. The Wall Street Journal reports that “Websites Vary Prices based on User Information” so for example Kim and Trude who live a few miles apart saw a 10% difference in the price quoted online at the same website for the same product (WSJ Article). Offline data is being merged with online data and sold to insurance companies and others. The CEO of a data analysis firm that analyzes online data for insurance companies admits to buying junk food or hamburgers with cash to avoid being labeled as unhealthy (Economist Article). Those are just two examples. There are many, many more reported by the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and many other publications.
Why should I use Epic?
When you use the Epic Privacy Browser, you get privacy in a fast, simple browser. Have a fabulous browsing experience that’s private. Protect your browsing and searches from your ISP (in many countries they can sell your browsing history), hundreds of companies tracking you, and governments.
Should I close Epic regularly?
Yes, please do. It’s helpful to close Epic regularly because this “cleans” Epic out. Epic does allow first-party cookies and HTML5 data storage and a few other things without which most websites wouldn’t work, so it’s important to “clean” your browser out of all that data regularly. Epic is always in private browsing mode, so when you close Epic it deletes all stored data – unlike other browsers no other effort on your part is required.
