The First Virtual Private Browser

The first web browser that makes it impossible for any site, including Google, to see or share a user's personal data. The user is now finally in charge and can control what, if any, personal information gets revealed on a website.

Please visit www.tracefree.com

A VPN Does Not Protect YOU!

Online Privacy Is Finally Here!

 NOT Just An Idea, It Already Works!

Why This Is Important NOW!

Why TraceFree Is COMPLETELY Different

Currently there is NO WAY to be completely anonymous and secure on the Web. With the current "private" browsing solutions (incognito mode, private search engines, TOR and using a virtual private network VPN),  the browser runs on the device, letting any site identify, track and compromise your device.

The TraceFree browser runs in the cloud (NOT ON YOUR DEVICE) making you ANONYMOUS ON ANY SITE and any link is safe to open. You CANNOT get a virus on your device.

How TraceFree Works

Whiteboard video explaining TraceFree
Whiteboard video explaining TraceFree

TraceFree is a privacy built virtual browser which uses unique data protection technology.TraceFree is a thin client app that sits on your device. There is no hardware involved. It runs in a secure, cloud based container. No web page code EVER reaches a user’s device.

In short, the end user device NEVER connects to the web page protocol, only display data gets streamed to the end device turning that device, quite literally, into a dumb display with a touch interface.

No records of what it displayed are EVER left behind on the device. Websites cannot see, touch or track the user’s device keeping them completely anonymous and secure.


You Get TRUE Broadband Speed

TraceFree runs in the cloud, not on your device, so you get the speed of a cloud provider NOT your local Internet provider speed.

TraceFree doesn't throttle your bandwidth like your VPN does. You want fast?

(speed may vary depending on your location)
(speed may vary depending on your location)

Keep Facebook Out Of Your Business

There's no need to delete Facebook or any other social media account.

With TraceFree, YOU CHOOSE what info Facebook (or any website) gets access to. Your device and browser are isolated from any website.

Facebook can ONLY SEE the info you share on their site, within that browsing session. Facebook cannot see your browsing history, they cannot track you online, and they DO NOT have access to your device.

You CANNOT Get A Virus On Your Device

With our virtual private browser, links are opened up on our server, NOT your device. This means you can go to ANY website and know you CANNOT GET A VIRUS on your device. That includes those sites you've always wanted to visit but were afraid to because of potential viruses. To prove this, we went to the most current malicious websites and opened the top two.

Finally you can explore the Internet without fear.

Make Google Your Private Search Engine

Websites cannot identify you, your true location, your device, or your browser, which makes you completely anonymous on every site, including Google.

You don't need to use an inferior "private" search engine when you can use the BEST search engine with complete privacy. For that reason we made Google.com our landing page.

Using Google with TraceFree IS private search.

No Browsing History To Delete

Our browser was built specifically for privacy. There is NO browsing history and there are no cookies to delete. The browser doesn't even remember the site it is currently on!

Use TraceFree To Open Links Safely with Google's Chrome Browser

We also built a Chrome extension that lets you open a link without fear when using Google's Chrome Browser. We understand, it happens to us all the time. When using Chrome, there may be a link in an email or on a site you're just not sure you want to open.

With the "Send To TraceFree" Chrome extension, simply right click on the link and open it safely away from your device using TraceFree.

Never Be Fooled By A Hidden URL

Sometimes a URL is shortened and the true destination is hidden. TraceFree makes ANY link safe to open.

How TraceFree Compares to a VPN

You thought your VPN gave you complete privacy and security? Think again. A VPN just encrypts your data and hides your IP address. Your device is still completely exposed and vulnerable to websites.

TraceFree not only hides your IP address, but it hides your true location, your device, and your browser from websites.

Now you can get all of the benefits of a VPN but with MUCH FASTER SPEED, virus free surfing, and no trace on your device.


TraceFree vs. Highest Rated VPN

We show why the claims of "highest anonymity" and "double encryption"  don't give you complete privacy and security like TraceFree does.

The Timeline of TraceFree

TraceFree is built and it runs great now. The public launch of TraceFree is expected in Q3 2018.

We are offering ALL Annual Subscribers (and higher) IMMEDIATE ACCESS to TraceFree Windows OS (Beta) once the Kickstarter campaign is over. You will get to use TraceFree months before the public launch.

The MAC OS (Beta) version is expected Summer 2018.

The Droid and iOS versions are expected Fall 2018.

 Use of Funds

The funds from Kickstarter campaign are targeted for 2 specific things:

1. We will finish building the mac OS version of TraceFree. Annual backers or greater get to beta test before general availability.

2. We want to place TraceFree on strategically located servers in certain parts of the world.

 TraceFree Referral Reward Program

For each person referred that pledges a reward of $50 or higher, we will deduct $5 per referral to your pledge. (limit 10 or $50 total).

Example: If you pledge $50 for an Annual TraceFree Subscription, and then refer 5 friends that subscribe to that $50 package or higher... we will then deduct $25 from your pledge. 10 friends at that package or higher, rewards you with a initial free Annual TraceFree pledge!

After pledging $50 for an Annual TraceFree Subscription, send us a message asking for a custom referral link to our Kickstarter campaign page, and we will provide one for your very own use.

Then use that referring link in an email, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram etc... It’s just THAT SIMPLE and EASY!

Any backers that visit our campaign page through that link will be tied directly to your account - but you MUST make sure they complete the process from start to finish after they use your special link to access the page.

Please make sure to follow these instructions carefully, because we won't be able to tally up referrals you make outside of that referring link!

  • Only backers of the Annual TraceFree Subscription ($50 and greater) can participate.
  • Referred backers will be counted after their payment is confirmed -- so once our Kickstarter campaign has ended and all financial matters have been finalized, we can then get your account credited correctly
  •  Please be advised, anyone who cancels and re-pledges does not count
  • Be nice. Please don't try to game our referral system!

Testimonials And Feedback

During our private beta launch, we asked testers for their feedback.

Kickstarter 101

Kickstarter is an ALL OR NOTHING crowdfunding platform, referred to many times on the TV show Shark Tank. Backers pledge money to help get a project launched. In exchange for their help, the project owner offers a reward which consists of discounted pricing or early availability of the product.

If the campaign goal is met, approximately 90% of the pledges go to the project. In our case the pledge goal is $25,000. If our goal is not met, the project receives NONE of the funding and pledge transactions will not be processed.

How do you contribute to our campaign?

If you want to see TraceFree come to life, choose either “Pledge Without A Reward” or select ONE reward you are interested in receiving.

Once you choose an option, the preset dollar amount will appear, but you can choose to contribute more than that value by entering in a dollar figure of your choice..much appreciated :)

You can either choose to register with a Kickstarter account or just pledge as a guest. While the campaign is live, you are free to increase your dollar pledge. You will not be billed for your pledge until the campaign is finished June 6 and ONLY if the campaign has met their funding goal. Kickstarter is an ALL or NOTHING venture.

Risks and challenges

We are doing something that has never been done before so we won't be surprised if some minor bugs are discovered. If you find one, let us know and give us a chance to fix it.

Our team is very experienced in the field and have put the browser through rigorous testing. TraceFree has been running great and has already begun its beta launch.

    TraceFree Ambassador

    Remember AOL and how they played a huge role in Internet adoption? The Internet was new and people were carefree about what info they shared online.

    Today people still want the Internet but they want to choose what info they share.

    We think TraceFree has the same kind of early adoption potential for a “private Internet”.
