Private Browsing in Firefox Lite

Starting on June 30, 2021, Mozilla will no longer support Firefox Lite. This application may continue to work on your device, but it will no longer receive support or security updates. For more information, visit End of support for Firefox Lite. Download Firefox for Android or Firefox Focus for a fast, private and safe browsing experience.

To browse privately in Firefox Lite:

  1. Tap the tab number icon at the bottom of the screen to bring up the tab list.
  2. Tap the Firefox Lite Private Browsing icon icon at the bottom of the screen.
