It wasn't that long ago that browsing the internet on your phone was an intensely sluggish experience, the kind of thing that you'd avoid if you could.

However, phones nowadays are more akin to tiny computers in our pockets, and they give us access to the entirety of human knowledge (lots of memes) among other things.

Because of that, there are lots of options to consider when you're browsing the internet, and it's important to think about security when doing so.

That's where this new browser comes into things, so let's talk about it.

What is the new iPhone browser?

This new browser comes from Avast, which is a company known for its antivirus software, has released an iOS version of its Secure Browser app.

This is good news for those who like to keep themselves safe as they browse as it uses AES-256 encryption to keep you safe as well as TLS/SSL cryptography to keep your personal details locked away.

It basically means you can go online without having to worry about your privacy as much, which is a big win when it feels like every company in the world is after everything they can get.
