By default, when someone taps a link in the Reddit mobile application, the link will be opened within Reddit’s own web browser, so that Redditors can view the webpage without leaving the Reddit application.

If you’d like to open links in your device’s default browser instead (for instance, you may use Safari on an iOS device), our guide will show you how this is done.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the Reddit app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap your profile picture/avatar in the top-left corner of the screen.
