• Lite Apps take up almost no space, best for low storage devices
• They don’t run in the background, which saves battery
• User Scripts: Run your own custom extension scripts!
• Content Blocker: Block ads, malware, misinformation, & targeted propaganda. Built-in & customizable: You can pick what to block.



• Each Lite App opens in its own permanent window, not a new browser tab each time
• Links clicked in other apps can be opened directly in Hermit Lite Apps
• Settings, permissions, themes & icons are saved separately for each Lite App
• Share links from other Android apps to your Lite Apps


Hermit is the only Android browser with Sandboxes: Isolated Containers with Multiple Profiles.

• Sandboxes keep your Web browsing isolated in separate containers
• Use multiple accounts, all active at the same time, in the same browser
• Keep work accounts and personal accounts separate
• Ideal for privacy-invasive social sites
• Use permanent Incognito Mode for sites that offer free content to new users


It takes a bit of learning & understanding to use Hermit effectively — We’re here to help!

    September 24, 2021 Update!! I would like to suggest an export-import option for lite apps, whether pre-configured or self-configured, especially for those of us who are uninstalling and reinstalling apps constantly. It would save people from having to retype the names of websites from scratch to recreate their lite apps. It's just a thought. I still enjoy using Hermit.

    First and most important. This app is worth EVERY PENNY and more. Next, I give it a 2 because your ad blocking simply doesn't work. To the developers, I agree with you that it's a cat and mouse game with ad blocking but if you would just allow extensions, then others like AdBlock plus and ublock origin can do this for us. They are really good at it and your efforts in this fall way short of coming even close. Last, I emailed you for support on this and never received a response... Go figure

    Great app, been looking for something like this for a while. Would be neat if the 'applets' could be registered as full apps so they could be launched as such rather than just as shortcuts, not sure if thats an existing option. Would also be fantastic to have a version of this app for androidtv

    Good app, long time user of premium. My only gripe is the pull out shade from the right side of the screen, it interferes with the Android OS navigation gestures. Please consider including an option to turn off the gesture to open the right shade

    Does exactly what it says, I'm impressed. But there is still scope for Improvement as always. It'll be nice if there is a video quality option while playing Facebook videos and a background playback option for running videos in background. But good app overall👍

    The new dark mode makes websites display wrong. The app became slower after the last version, the drawer hiccups when the app starts and it opens the keyboard by default.

    I haven't used all the functions yet, but it's very simple to use and works like it says it does. It's much more convenient to use this app rather than a web browser for certain things. It also uses less memory than custom apps, like Facebook or Amazon.

    You can search and download ready made ones, but that's it. There's no directions or buttons so it's basically impossible to make an app. Edit: The app is TROLLING me. It literally just showed the create app button but disappeared after a sec. Sorry but what the heck.

    Just starting out with Hermit, and it's impressive. It looks like it can replace over a dozen one-off apps I use regularly.

    I mean it's a good attempt but trying out Facebook for example, it just loads so slowly that it's frustrating.
