As you know, privacy is very important to us. That’s why we not only offer you our Tracker and Ad Blocker, but also the promise that we will not track you. Here is a nice read about why your browser has a huge impact on your privacy.
But not only your browser is crucial to protect your privacy, also your search engine matters. Private search engines, such as Startpage, DuckDuckGo or You.com do not collect user data but keep you safe and private. In the Vivaldi Settings you can easily set your private search engine as a default.

Volla Phone: Elevating digital privacy
The main priority of Volla Phones is clearly data protection. They are designed around open-source principles, no tracking involved. Volla Phones work without a cloud connection and are based on a free Android without Google Apps and Play services. They replace basic apps like phone calls and address books with curated apps that are also open source, as well as protecting the system with a pre-installed (optional) log-free VPN.
In addition, Volla Phones offer a security mode that reduces the background activities of apps and specifically blocks Internet addresses. This protects your privacy and children from harmful content.
If you are looking for options to be safe from Google and other data giants, Volla Phones can fit in. Find more information here.
