Following the beta testing period, Samsung Internet 14.0 will officially launch in April. If you are already a Samsung Internet user, you will receive a notification when the new version becomes available.
“Samsung is constantly looking for ways to enhance the security of its services and protect users’ privacy,” says Du Kim, VP, and Head of Web R&D Group, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “With Samsung Internet 14.0 beta, we want users to enjoy browsing with peace of mind, knowing they’ll have full control and visibility over their data.”
New and Improved Privacy Features
The beta version of Samsung Internet 14.0 helps keep you protected while browsing with enhanced Smart Anti Tracking, which detects when a website is trying to track you and automatically stops them.
For easy monitor and control of your privacy settings and view useful daily stats, such as how many pop-ups and trackers have been blocked, Samsung introduces a new Security control panel to the Samsung Internet 14.0 Beta.
Automatic Flex mode on Galaxy Foldable Devices
With Samsung Internet 14.0, Flex mode will be enabled automatically when playing a video on full screen. You no longer have to go through the Video Assistant to switch it on.
Flex mode lets you watch a video on the top half of the screen while the video controls are displayed on the lower half for a more comfortable viewing experience.
The beta version 14.0 enables the App Pair feature to launch multiple Samsung Internet browsers simultaneously, allowing you to view web content in a split-screen format. It means you can watch a tutorial while reading a recipe or easily compare prices when shopping online.
