Snap Search has tons of features that separate it from the competition. With Premium Mode, the experience of browsing the web safely is taken to another level by unlocking many more features! In brief, they are:
- Integrated Proxy VPN
- Unlocking more Website Options
- Accessing websites offline
- Customizing News Feed
- Edit Web Pages
- Change App Themes
Read on to know about them more in detail.
Premium Mode Benefits
1) Integrated Proxy VPN
There are two main reasons why you might need a proxy:
- Accessing unblocked content: A lot of websites & content is locked in different regions due to various factors. Eg:
– There are some places where YouTube or Facebook is blocked/inaccessible.
– Netflix has different libraries for different countries.
- To protect your identity: Get yourself another IP address and protect yourself on the websites you browse. This even protects you from getting tracked by your ISP.
WHY IS THIS A PAID FEATURE?
Maintaining Private Proxy servers is costly, it would be extremely difficult to run those without a source of income.
2) Unlock All Websites
While a major focus has been on privacy – Snap Search is also really, really fast. It’s equally important mission is to make it easier to search the web. You’ll find a curated list of 50+ websites/search engines for easy, quick searching through Snap Search. A fair share of these engines are free for all users, and the rest of them can be unlocked through premium mode. Sample use case could be:
Searching for a movie on IMDb? Generally you’d do one of the following:
- Search for IMDb on Google, open the website, and then search for your movie on IMDb
- Open www.imdb.com and then search for your movie
Using Snap Search, all you got to do is select IMDb from the options and then enter your search term.
3) Access Websites Offline
Snap Search allows you to save unlimited websites offline and access them without internet whenever you need to. This capability exists without the need of any permissions. It’s worth thinking why other browsers do not have such a feature – and yet ask for so many permissions. What do they do with your data?
4) Customize News Feed
Snap Search is NOT about news – however, Snap Search is about privacy. Nowadays, websites are filled with bias based on articles you read online. One can see ads based on the news – one even starts getting news recommendations based on previous articles read. We want to allow you to read in peace – without worrying about getting tracked online.
The news articles are fetched via NewsAPI.org and have NO influence/relation/bias based on what you read. However, since their service is a paid one general news is free for all and customising news based on genres/country is a paid feature.
5) Edit Web Pages
First time on Mobile, you can edit static content on websites you visit. This involves adding, removing or changing what you see on a page. The only reason this is a paid feature is to acknowledge that this is more powerful than it seems and can be misused.
Here’s a demo video on YouTube.
6) Changing App Theme
Snap Search comes with a dark mode by default – and offers the option of switching to a ‘light mode’ for those that prefer it.
We hope these points were convincing enough to go for a premium plan. If you have any doubts or would like to know something more, we’re always available for support:
