The Brave web browser does something that no other web browsers do – it puts you back in control! Because Brave is built on the Google Chrome platform, it is cross-device compatible, and very customizable. But in truth, there are really only two reasons to change browsers – privacy & performance. Brave gives you a third, earning rewards paid in BAT (Basic Attention Token).
Your web browser hosts your entire online life making it the most important program on your computer. You should choose a browser built for performance. Brave loads pages 3X faster than Google Chrome, uses 33% less memory, and provides longer battery life. On your phone, it’s even faster, but these speeds don’t happen by accident.
When you use most browsers, your private information and the websites you visit, is collected and saved. Then the Internet giants and their partners target you with invasive ads and sell the data to the highest bidder. Brave automatically blocks ads that track you, allowing your content to load faster.
Most browsers have a ‘private or incognito’ mode, but this only hides your history from others using your browser. With Brave web browser you can use Tor right in a tab. Tor hides your history, it masks your location from the sites you visit. This is done by routing your browsing through several servers before it reaches your destination. These are encrypted connections and increase anonymity.
With most browsers, you pay to browse the web by viewing ads. You spend your valuable time downloading invasive ad technology that transmits your precious private data to advertisers — whether you agree or not. Using Brave your time is valued and you’re rewarded for it while, keeping your personal data private.
Brave Rewards is built on the Basic Attention Token (BAT), a new way to value attention, connecting users, content creators, and advertisers.
And Brave Ads do not collect information about you and are not intrusive to your browsing experience. You’re in control of the ads you see and there’s no hint of your browsing activity. It’s always your choice to be part of Brave Rewards and help creators keep creating.
Whenever you access the Internet, you should ALWAYS use a VPN (Virtual Private Network). A VPN will provide a secure environment for everyday internet activity. When you establish a VPN connection, all of your online traffic (web browsing, video streaming, messaging, file-sharing, etc.) passes through an encrypted tunnel, while your identifying IP address is concealed.
