Firefox for Android has recently updated privacy options to include a “Do Not Track” feature, which is a huge step for smartphone privacy online. Firefox is one of the leading browsers in this respect, and more mobile web browsers are expected to follow this privacy move in the near future.

Android Firefox users can turn on the “Do Not Track” option by going to Menu > Preferences and choosing “Tell sites not to track me”.
