How Gear Handle User Data

The web URL browsing history will automatically record for quick access from the search bar.

The history, bookmark, download list, top sites data are stored into local device database in current.

Many websites use cookies, web databases, and session data to identify visitors and store information about their site users. Gear stores those data based on privacy settings, but the website determines how the cookie and data are used. Therefore you must understand the privacy policy of the websites you are visiting.

Cookie, web database, session data, auto-fill password are also stored in the local device and handled by WKWebView from iOS native operation system.

Gear do not share, upload, modify, record any user data (bookmark, history, download list, password, cookie, web database, session data, and more) to our server or third-party companies or organizations.

User can clear up all bookmarks, histories, and download list from lists manager (Home -> Lists), and clear up cookies, web database, session data from setting page (Setting -> Cache). Top sites can be removed from the home page (long-pressing the site icon).

Web customization script and style data (being available for Gear Pro) for dedicated site settings are stored in the local database. It will be cleared up while uninstalling the application.

Totally, Gear Browser in current is a full local-based browser and not using any API to upload and download user data to our server.

Ads Blocking

While the Ads blocking feature is enabled, Gear will block some advertising scripts and hide ad elements for a better browsing experience and speed when the web page is loading. However, some advertising tracking scripts may be run or execute that we can not fully detect. User should understand how the privacy policy for the website is visiting.

Private Mode

In private mode, the browsing history, cookie, web database, and session data are reset for the new visit and will be cleared up when the window is closed.
