What data is sent to third parties

Ghost Browser is built on Chromium and therefore has some tools built in that may transmit data to third parties like Google to improve your experience. These services includes things like automated search suggestions that appear in your URL bar and protection from dangerous websites. The transmission of this data is subject to the terms and privacy policy of those services.

While we recommend these services, you can disable any of them by clicking the customize and control menu in Ghost Browser and selecting Settings > Show advanced settings > Privacy.

The above notwithstanding, you can still use Ghost Browser to browse without having your searches tracked by Google. If you are logged into Google or gmail and search Google in the same Session, they will be able to track your searching and browsing history. If you search in a different Session, those searches will not be linked.privacy.png
