  • You can set the time zone, that is one of the most attractive features of this browser.
  • You can check the Anonymity after creating the identity using built-in testing, which shows the percentage of your anonymity.

The browser also shows fake operating system type and browser type. Like your original working operating system is windows and sphere browser but it will show the other browser like chromium or opera.
