Herond Account: What it is and why you need one


What is Herond Account?

Herond Account is created by a user when they start using Herond Browser to save all settings, passwords, information, extensions, and even wallets. The account can be used to seamlessly transition between devices without having to set up all over again.

This also raises one big question:

Does “saving” mean my private information is acquired and accessed by the Herond team?”

Absolutely not! Herond Browser is built on Chromium, and everything is encrypted and secured by the gigantic Google database. Herond has neither the authority to access any information, nor the intention to steal anything from our users.

Your information is kept with and is only accessible through the email that you use to create Herond Account. Wherever your email goes, your settings follow!

If you’ve been using Google Chrome profiles without problems, then Herond is no different. In fact, Herond Browser does an even better job in securing your account from unauthorized trackers (the ones that may come along with the ads you see). Adfree means better privacy!
