Samsung has announced the beta version of Samsung Internet 15.0. This version brings the latest features for more ease along with upgraded privacy features built to safeguard user data.
VP and Head of Web R&D Group, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, Du Kim stated that:
Samsung works tirelessly to deliver the best mobile experience while providing ways to help keep your personal information private with advanced privacy features. Samsung Internet 15.0 beta offers the best of both worlds with simple tools that help users browse faster while maintaining control over their personal data.
The enhanced privacy features of Samsung Internet 15.0 beta safeguard users against a type of online tracking called fingerprinting that makes use of a process through which network use is tracked to match up information about users. Through advanced anti-tracking technology, this version aids in keeping the data of users private.
In this version, if the user turns on Secret mode, it will be set as default in the browser, not requiring the user to turn on this mode every time they re-open the browser. It also enables them to remove data stored on their devices along with giving them more information on what will be removed.
Fast navigation and quick search has also become a part of the latest 15.0 beta version. The inbuilt search widget allows users to search for information from the home screen by using their voice or by typing. Samsung users will now also be able to mitigate data usage by getting the earlier web pages back without reloading them from scratch.
Officially, Samsung internet will be released in late summer following the beta testing phase. Samsung Internet users will also get a notification once the latest version becomes available.
