Abine Blur (formerly DoNotTrackMe and MaskMe) has a given track record as a renowned online privacy protection service  which is dissimilar to VPNs but in most regard, superior in functionality – with the exception of IP spoofing and virtualized location.

Blur’s feature set is widely available across multiple supported platforms and the main goal of Abine as a security-centric company is to keep your data protected and YOU as anonymous as you can be.

As you might have expected, there’s the free and premium side of things. In a brief comparison as seen in the table below, you couldn’t possibly go wrong with whichever one you go for as you still get an unmatched privacy solution whether you go “FREE” or even better  if you choose to go premium.

The Abine guys sent us a beta version of the Blur software to give a test drive with a month-long premium subscription – so without much ado, let’s dive into what the Android version of the Blur app has to offer.

Accounts

Blur takes over the authentication of your login in any account on the web you might want to access, thereby minimizing the chances of spam and unwanted e-mails. Blur’s Masked E-mail feature essentially replaces your address with a random one; whenever you get a message from “ridiculous.com” for example, it goes directly to your Blur inbox where you can review it and decide whether it’s spam or not.

Watch an example video below.

It is also worth mentioning that Blur will have your details synchronized across all your devices, thereby making login into your accounts a breeze (as you’ll never have to input your account information manually again – the whole process in instantaneously automated).

Wallets

With Blur’s digital wallet, you can store your credit card information so whenever you have to make a transaction online, right at the point of checkout, your account details will autofill in the billing address space. This significantly reduces the time needed to check out whenever you’re in the process of a transaction.

Even better, you can have your credit card account information masked (if you go for the premium subscription) – that essentially works with a custom Blur entry (different from your card’s original details) which allows you to specify the cost or amount of a transaction you want to make without running the risk of hidden charges or your card being compromised by hackers.

Watch an example in the video below.

Backup and Sync

The backup and sync functionality is available in the premium version of Blur. It essentially synchronizes all your data across all your devices for easier accessibility and total protection.

Tracking

The tracking function works pretty much as an adblocker – actively preventing websites from logging your data thereby disallowing targeted ads, cookies and the likes. It is available for both free and premium subscribers. The Blur app walkthrough video below shows an instance of the effectiveness of Blur’s Tracking.

Verdict

Abine’s Blur is overall a functional and reliable service and I can say that with my few days of using the Blur mobile app, I’ve not had any issues whatsoever regard it’s features and day to day usage with the applications and varying services I use regularly.

Also, you can find varying reviews online (just Google the usual keywords) — they are mostly positive. In a nutshell, we wholly recommend Abine’s Blur particularly because of its long list of features that you can’t possibly go wrong with — that is if you value your privacy online.
