Privacy Browser used to have an option to use an external download manager. It was designed primarily to work around a bug with Android's Download Manager on Android 7.

With the 3.4 release of Privacy Browser I stopped using Android's Download Manager and implemented downloads natively inside of Privacy Browser, which works on all versions of Android as well as respecting proxy settings.

At the time I also removed the option to use an external download manager. However, if there is interest, I would not be opposed to adding such an option back into Privacy Browser.
