Encrypt Personal Data in Dooble Web Browser

A little known web browser, the Dooble web browser, was first released in 2008 and was being considered dead until a few months ago when the open-source developers picked up the development once again. The older Dooble web browser was based on the webkit engine, while the newly released Dooble web browser is using the Chrome’s blink engine. Even though Dooble is nowhere close to competing with the leaders like Firefox, Chrome or Opera, it has come up with a really nice security feature – it allows you to encrypt your entire personal data folder using very strong AES 256 cipher.

Dooble lacks many features usually found in standard web browsers like Firefox, but it can be made to encrypt your web browsing history, cookies, settings and bookmarks etc. Only after you authenticate yourself, these items become accessible.

The first thing you have to do is launch Dooble web browser, and open the settings by using the hotkey Ctrl+G. You can also select Settings from the menu that opens when you click on the hamburger icon. In the settings, select Privacy, select Credentials, enter the password, click on the Save button and then click on the Apply button.

Now whenever you have to access your encrypted personal data (web browsing history, bookmarks, settings etc.), you have to select File → Authenticate from the menubar. As soon as you enter the correct password, it will load all of your personal data. Without entering the password, you can still use the browser but will it will not load any of your encrypted personal data.
