    Is this an ad or a news article? Can't tell.

    Great i need to isolate but the article says nothing on how to do it.

    I like firefox containers on the desktop and i think firefox mobile are going to introduce it in the future which would be good

    Brave for Android has flags for:

    Site isolation for password sites
    Strict site isolation
    Strict origin isolation

    Brave's probably as good as anything right now for Android.

    At first I thought this was similar to the bifurcation process of mobile devices especially those found on an enterprise level by implementing a mobile device management solution. Can you break down the difference for me?

    My post referenced browser security and was in response to @trott3r in post #3.

    Flag #1 - Security mode that enables site isolation for the sites based on password-oriented heuristics, such as user typing a password.
    Flag #2 - Security mode that enables site isolation for all sites (SitesPerProcess). ... each renderer process will contain pages from at most one site, using out of process frames when needed. ...
    Flag #3 - Security mode that strengthens the site isolation policy. Controls whether site isolation should use origins instead of scheme and eTLD+1

    The article referenced above is about zero-trust in enterprises and isolation of devices.

    Is that right? Perhaps I will give it a go.
