approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

create accounts and set passwords
Allows the app to use the account authenticator capabilities of the AccountManager, including creating accounts and getting and setting their passwords.

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

access Bluetooth settings
Allows the app to configure the local Bluetooth phone, and to discover and pair with remote devices.

take pictures and videos
Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

download files without notification
Allows the app to download files through the download manager without any notification being shown to the user.

GET ACCOUNTS

find accounts on the device
Allows the app to get the list of accounts known by the phone. This may include any accounts created by applications you have installed.

full license to interact across users
Allows all possible interactions across users.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

manage users
Allows apps to manage users on the device, including query, creation and deletion.

read sensitive log data
Allows the app to read from the system's various log files. This allows it to discover general information about what you are doing with the phone, potentially including personal or private information.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

read sync settings
Allows the app to read the sync settings for an account. For example, this can determine whether the People app is synced with an account.

read sync statistics
Allows an app to read the sync stats for an account, including the history of sync events and how much data is synced.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

record audio
Allows the app to record audio with the microphone. This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation.

reorder running apps
Allows the app to move tasks to the foreground and background. The app may do this without your input.

set preferred apps
Allows the app to modify your preferred apps. Malicious apps may silently change the apps that are run, spoofing your existing apps to collect private data from you.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

install shortcuts
Allows an application to add Homescreen shortcuts without user intervention.

    The new update looks good, feels faster, and with the renewal of the video assistant feature and the quick settings customization, it really feels like a full-on desktop experience. Keep it up! Edit: The latest update added support for more third party add-ons, a nice touch to an awesome experience. Edit: Cannot sign in anymore with 2-step authentification. The server gives an error message everytime. Please fix

    1. Please make the animations snappy, rather than slow and "beautiful". 2. When switching back to a tab, the page scrolls to the top. If the page has a lot of content, it's necessary to scroll to the previous position everytime I switch back. 3. Close button on every tab below adress bar 4. Swipe to close tabs is not available on tablets.

    When doing a google search and going to a website. Pressing back button loses the Google web search and takes you back to a previous site pressing forward again takes you to the website you visited. Google search results are missing. very annoying. I don't use block unwanted websites feature. Seems to have stopped now though when if it happens again. I will take note of the exact steps used to reproduce the bug

    Thanks for the reply. Samsung Pass lacks many features a standard password manager provides unfortunately. One can't even add a login manually. So, please do consider supporting other password managers. Since almost all the other apps support the auto fill framework, I don't think security can be an issue here. All the other features such as dark mode and customisable menu are great and I'm enjoying using the application. Thanks.

  5. guest-avatar

    Edit: The problem was fixed after I rebooted my phone. Sorry for wasting your time! ----- Why did you make it reload the page whenever you leave the app and then return to it or switch tabs? It doesn't even take you back to the part of the page you'd scrolled to. Please revert this extremely annoying and unwanted feature asap!

  6. guest-avatar

    One glitch - in "High Contrast" mode or Night Mode the Captchpa is IMPOSSIBLE to see (zero contrast!) for the Samsung Account login. It is hard enough to figure out normally, and you keep erasing my (correct, complex, hard to type) password if I make a mistake and I can't change modes from the login screen. THANK YOU - now my Tablets can default to Desktop Mode, so I don't have to fiddle with settings! I also like and find the other additions (temp unblock, etc) useful

    Finally I uninstalled Opera. Stable Samsung Internet Browser have Quick Access but don't have Exit button and no Clear Browsing Data on exit. I tried about 6 Popular browsers and none had functions that i mentioned above except Opera. I looked at the screenshots of Beta version and saw Close button. Decided to download and found settings to delete data on exit as well. Transferred bookmarks from Opera. Please consider adding dark theme & dark background for Quick Access. Thanks developers.

    I mostly use the "regular" Samsung Internet, best browser around! However I do have a small request that would really make the app 110% perfect. Can you add the "reader mode" button to the "customize menu"? If I was able to add that button to the bottom bar this browser would be perfect!

  9. guest-avatar

    Switching dark/light mode causes preloading website on NON-SAMSUNG PHONES . Works properly on 8th browser version. Second matter is pop-up window. It always appears except YT films. So I can't watch YT videos in pop-up window, other f.e. Facebook videos I can. And now also, in the past 8th version had possibility to play each video.

    Much preferred the last version of the app. This update made it really slow to start up, the floating video assistant menu thing was better than the current buttons next to the video, app feels clunky now. Please return it to how it was last update.

  11. guest-avatar

    Needs system dark/light mode support on Android 10 and prefers-color-scheme support on websites; Option to choose what data to clear on exit; Proper adaptive icon for stock Android; Option to export bookmarks. Browser fells pretty heavy and sluggish (maybe it's because animations are stock). Otherwise it's pretty good

  12. guest-avatar

    Finally open links in apps toggle and clear data on exit. Also nice to see history hijack protection. These much needed additions together with the excellent dark mode make this a proper alternative to Firefox preview or the new Edge.

  13. guest-avatar

    Has problems with downloading and opening links and pictures. Switches from desktop to mobile when it feels like it. After making or replying to a post, keyboard doesn't retract.

    The app crashes every single time after I download something. Even after downloading 100+ things. It's a pain. Clearing, cache, etc, clearing most browser data, restarting my device. Nothing helps. Fix please.

    Beautiful update today, awsome. Close everything in one click works soooo great lovely.. very nice developers. Thanks for the amazing tab on the top feature. Much appreciated Developers.. awesome.. nothing compared to Samsung Browser.. definitely 5 Star
