Firefox for Android is cracking down on cross-site tracking

Mozilla Firefox is one of the few remaining browsers that is not based on Google Chrome, especially on Android devices. Mozilla has now improved the privacy of the Android version with “Full Cookie Protection”.

Mozilla began testing Total Cookie Protection on the desktop Firefox web browser in 2021, with the release of Firefox 86, and it was enabled by default on desktop platforms in June 2022. It is a feature that isolates data from each site web, which makes cross-site tracking more difficult (if not impossible). Blocking cookies completely can often cause sites to not work, as sites can use cookies to store local data – Total Cookie Protection preserves that core functionality while preventing data sharing between sites.

Total Cookie Protection was already available in the Firefox Focus browser, but now it’s coming to the standard Firefox app for Android. That means Android phones and tablets can benefit from the same privacy protections as desktop browsers. However, Firefox for iPhone and iPad is still not included, presumably because Total Cookie Protection requires changes to the browser engine, something Apple doesn’t allow.

The browser update with Total Cookie Protection should start rolling out soon. Firefox for Android is available on the Google Play Store. You can also download APK versions from the official GitHub repository.
