Many Android apps and processes can provide identifiable information--for example, your camera app may stamp photos with GPS location data, and your cellular-network provider also has various means to identify and track your device. ND Private Browser is one tool that can help protect your privacy, at least while you're browsing the Web.
One nice thing about this stripped-down browser is that pages load really fast. Text is easy to read without the bells and whistles and other typical distractions found on most Websites. It's actually pretty handy, if your intention is to just read a text article.
ND works in conjunction with another app called Orbot, which acts as a proxy client of the Tor anonymizing network. You don't need to perform fancy hacks or get root access to your device--just install Orbot, open the app, and connect to Tor. Then install ND and start browsing. The home page is set to the Are You Using Tor? Web page, so you can instantly verify your connection to the Tor network.
ND Private Browser is a must-have application for anyone who is truly serious about security and privacy.
