Import and export of bookmarks and settings
Create a mechanism to import and export bookmarks and settings to an encrypted file, which can then be synced between devices using ownCloud or a similar mechanism.
This feature will have the option to automate the import and export so that everytime a bookmark or setting is updated on one device it automatically updates on all of them.

The design of this feature is to export the settings to an encrypted file, probably using OpenKeychain to handle the encryption. The file will be placed at a location on the device selected by the user, and can then be synced by whatever program the user desires (ownCloud, Nextcloud, some proprietary service like Dropbox, etc.). Privacy Browser will have the option to to automatically export settings/bookmarks whenever there is a change and monitor the date on the file to automatically import changes made from other devices. There will also be an option to manually initiate an import/export. The encryption key will be manually entered in Privacy Browser on each device, so that the encrypted data is not available to the server that is syncing the file.
This will require permissions to read and write to external storage, which I do not want to implement until more users are on Android >= 6.0.
