Blur for Android: The guided tour

Welcome to our latest development—the new Blur App for Android!

All of our digital lives are becoming more mobile, which is why we’ve been pushing the limits of what mobile phones (and devices) can do for privacy, given constraints from Apple and Google.


What’s new with Blur for Android?

  • 1 tap to auto-login to your favorite mobile Apps and online accounts
  • 1 tap to auto-fill credit cards and addresses to speed up mobile shopping
  • Use your phone’s biometrics to secure all your online accounts – even from your PC

With Blur for Android, you can make your mobile life faster and more secure by using auto-fill for credit cards, Masked Cards, addresses, passwords and more. Our main priority is to give YOU—the consumer—the option to never share your private information online.

Below, we’ve included a 14-step guide for getting started and seeing Blur work live.


Completing ALL of this should take about 15-20 minutes.

1. (2 minutes) Sign up/download the Blur App for your passwords, payments and privacy.

Blur is available for both Android and iOS mobile devices and is compatible with both Mac and PC systems. The Blur browser extension is available for Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Internet Explorer. And you can create a simple Web-only account here: dnt.abine.com.

For the ideal user experience, download Blur for your computer and your mobile device, and log in to the same account on each. No matter where you are or which Internet browser you’re using—home, work or mobile—you can access your Blur account. Even if you don’t have the Blur extension installed on an Internet browser, you can access your Blur Dashboard via our web dashboard.
