What Are In-App Browsers and Their Implications?

Dec 14, 2023

Written by Nerdzter

In today’s app-centric world, in-app browsers are pretty much everywhere.

In-app browsers are the little windows that pop up when you click a link in an app, letting you view web content without leaving the app.

Handy, right? But here’s the catch: they’re not just about convenience.

In-app browsers can be a bit nosy, often tracking what you’re up to online.

Take Instagram as an example. It’s been found that when you open a link in Instagram, the app might sneak in some tracking code. This means Instagram gets a peek at what you’re viewing, how long you’re there, and what you’re clicking on. It’s all part of the big picture to make ads more personal, especially on Meta platforms.

But let’s be fair, not all in-app browsers are about tracking. Sometimes, they’re just making life easier. Picture an airline app that lets you pick your seat right in the app using a web interface. That’s in-app browsing doing good!

And some apps play it really safe. They only use in-app browsers for their own stuff, like showing their privacy policy. Click an external link? Boom, you’re in your regular browser, where it’s just you and the web.

Staying Smart with In-App Browsers

So, what’s the best move if you’re dealing with in-app browsers? First, keep it private. Sensitive info doesn’t belong in in-app browsers. And do your homework – read those privacy policies to know what info the app’s collecting.

If you accidentally tap on a link in an app, no sweat. Just close it. Better yet, open it in your favorite browser. Most apps have an easy way to do this. Look for those three little dots or a settings icon, and you should find an “Open in Browser” option. Can’t find it? Copy the URL and paste it into your browser of choice.

Or, go old school and use the web version of social media platforms. It’s a neat way to cut down on the personal info you share and maybe even dial back your social media time.
