Epic – a Chromium based, private and secure web browser which blocks ads, trackers, fingerprinting, cryptomining, ultrasound signaling and more. It stops 600+ tracking attempts in an average browsing session. Turn on network privacy with our free VPN (servers in 8 countries).
Epic is a private browser that’s fast, simple and actually works. When you’re using Epic with our encrypted proxy on, your data is encrypted and hidden from the government, from your ISP, from Google, from your employer, and from hundreds of data collectors. On close of Epic, there’s no easily accessible record of your browsing history left on your computer.
Epic 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 which provides the same level of protection, let alone the ease and speed of use that Epic does.
Epic shows you who’s tracking you in your other browsers (most likely dozens of data collectors) as well as the trackers Epic blocks at each webpage you visit.
Epic protects you from over one thousand tracking attempts in a typical browsing session. Over a year of browsing it works out to hundreds of thousands of bits of data about you that Epic protects.
The application is developed by Hidden Reflex a company founded by Alok Bhardwaj.
