Secure mobile browser

TAP Browser is a free mobile browser app created by Victor Zuev. This app is made for web surfing, providing easy and focused browser use. It comes with a modern in-app player with speed controls, which lets you watch videos and browse at the same time. It also provides more security as it blocks intrusive ads by default. However, while it blocks ads from websites, the app comes with its own set of ads that will still cause some annoyance. 

Browse and download

At a glance, TAP Browser is very much similar to the Bolt Browser. At its core, the two work almost the same way, allowing users to play media as they browse. However, there are lots of things added to this browser that makes it a better version of Bolt. For one, the app has updated icons to make it easier to navigate. The app has also beefed up its security features by adding a VPN to make your online data more private. 

As noted, the app blocks ads from websites by default, so you don’t have to worry about closing pop-ups whenever you visit a website. On top of that, the app comes with multiple anti-tracking techniques to keep your online data from snoopers. It also provides passcode protection for your bookmarks and history, so only you can access them. The app even allows users to come up with personalized blocking rules, which they can change daily. 

More than the beefed-up security, the TAP Browser also makes it easier to play media with its movable built-in media player. This feature also comes with speed control and a sleep timer, which helps you adjust your media consumption. However, there are still some issues to consider before switching to this app. For one, the media does not play in the background unless you download it. Also, despite blocking ads from websites, the app has ads popping up as you use it.

Is TAP Browser worth downloading?

If you are looking for a free browser that comes with security features, then TAP Browser is worth a try. It comes with a VPN and anti-tracking functions, which help you secure your data as you browse. More than that, it also offers convenient browsing as it lets you watch videos and surf at the same time. However, there are still a few drawbacks to the app that can be a little dealbreaker for users. 


  • Various security features
  • Movable built-in media player
  • Allows download of media and documents
  • Easy to navigate


  • Media player does not play in the background
  • Comes with lots of ads

    Indeed it has a clean user interface but ads comes once in a while. If there was an in app purchase to remove the ads and also gestures on the left and right sides for volume and brightness will be number one.
