Ratings and Reviews
Deleted 100s of downloads without a prompt or asking me first
Deleted 100s of downloads i made—mostly hard to find Ebooks, presumably because that as the default behaviour. I went into settings and saw clearing of multiple things, including downloads, was in the on mode of the on-off switch which says clear downloads. I’ve never seen a web browser yet which has a turned on switch to clear a number of things including downloads.
I was in the process of making Brave my default browser, pushing out iCabMobile which is a pay app, which I have using since my first Apple device but after 100s of downloads were cleared without even asking me first is completely unforgivable and unacceptable in my estimation and that’s why I gave it 1 star. I would have given it a 0 or some negative number like -5 if that was possible. Until that point I thought it was a great browser and would have made it my new default browser if this did not happen. ICabMobile NEVER deleted my downloads no matter how much space they took up or how old they were just sitting there. My iPad Pro has a gig of user available ram and I never really get to a point where I must delete stuff, but if and when I delete things it should be up to me and not some app to delete anything.
I highly encourage the developer(s) of this app to turn off those clearing switches and let the USER decide how they should work but FOR SURE don’t delete downloads without at least prompting the user first.
FOR SURE don’t have clear private data,, including all user logins and downloads turned on by default. Most users are capable of going in to SETTINGS and choosing the options they want to clear and setup a schedule of WHEN and HOW OFTEN they want to clear their items which are here configured as Private Data.
Deleting Brave = a much cleaner conscience
Just deleted Brave, & feeling so much better. The folks who run this browser are dishonest hypocrites. They talk all about Privacy, while working with privacy violators, Coinbase and BlockFi (Coinbase openly sells user data to US intelligence agencies; BlockFi avoided disclosing being hacked for user data including physical addresses.)
Brave’s sneaky profit strategy and “improvement” over Google’s business model, is to try to convince you to buy things and accept small payments using their digital “Basic Attention (BAT)” Tokens. "BAT” is an Ethereum ERC20 token, which basically means digital Monopoly money with an unlimited supply that can be infinitely copied for free by any 10 year old with web access. ERC20 tokens were a leading cause of the 2017 Crypto Bubble; only the ERC20’s used by companies with deep venture capital investment avoided bankruptcy from Securities Fraud lawsuits. Brave’s BAT is a straight-up Ponzi Scheme / Pyramid Scheme and even shamelessly uses a triangle as its logo, LOL.
Brave wants you to believe these worthless tokens are actually money, to make more people use them, increasing their value. Their partner in crime, Coinbase, comes in to help sell BAT tokens to the naive public (keeping records of every transaction for the US government- one of the ways those guys make money). Of course, Brave kept a huge pile of the first BAT tokens for themselves… So they can dump piles of BAT onto the market in exchange for real money, every time people start actually using the “BATs” in commerce. This is why cryptocurrency price charts have those big up-and-down spikes of volatility, and why 99.9% of them will never become real money. The dictator Maduro uses the same tactic (see Venezuelan hyperinflation)... Controlling a currency is one of the sneakiest ways the powerful make money off of everyday people.
There’s no such thing as a free lunch, people. If you want an easy to use, quality privacy browser, just go with one of the well known and long respected ones whose creators aren’t running any obvious scams, one pretty good one is Firefox.
Faster and ad free
It’s fast and ad free. Loved it
