Privately browse the web on Brave, for free! Brave is lightning fast, safe and private, preventing you from being tracked by ads.

No external plugins or settings to configure! Get protected from ads infected with malware. Brave simply provides the fastest, most secure browsing experience available.

Brave reduces page loading time and improves performance. Brave is proven to have a 2x to 8x speed increase on iOS, resulting in the reduction of both battery and data consumption.

Be protected with leading privacy and security features such as HTTPS Everywhere (encrypted data traffic), script blocking, cookie blocking, and private tabs. All other browsers fall short of the level of privacy and security protection that Brave provides.

Brave has the following features:
* Built-in 3rd party Ad-Block
* Pop-up blocker
* Saves battery and data
* Sync Bookmarks securely
* Tracking protection
* HTTPS everywhere (for security)
* Script blocking
* History
* Private and recent tabs

Our mission is to save the web by making a safe, fast and private browser while growing ad revenue for content creators. Brave aims to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where safe, fast browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.

Overall amazing

I really appreciate this app and desktop browser as my old add blocker despite never listing a price and implying it to be free has started a subscription service and I’m broke so I really enjoy this free app but I do have an issue with the settings as I cannot change the safe search feature either in or out of private browsing for the primary browser and always reverts back to moderate so if you can change that or flag it as an issue to the team behind DuckDuckGo I would really appreciate it

Could be better

I have used Brave on my Mac and currently use the Brave fork, Dissenter - so wanted to use something similar on my iPad.

It does the job but seems to lack a lot of functions which are pretty standard on browsers these days such as menu bar bookmarks - who needs to have to go through the settings to access their bookmarks? Four taps through the … menu to access an organised bookmark?! And seemingly impossible to organise previously saved bookmarks! I spent several useless minutes trying to figure out a way to do it, having tapped edit and tried to drag a bookmark onto a completely unco-operative folder.

I imagine that nobody is particularly interested in getting this browser up to date and and functional as every other iOS browser - at least the ones that I have tried.

Best mobile browser on speed and privacy

This is the best browser I have used thus far on my iPhone when it comes to browsing the net. The speed beats safari and chrome by far and the ability to avoid all tracking and advertising has really enhanced my experience of using the web on my phone. Not to mention the fact it is costing me less on data and battery because I am not loading up silly advertisements and trackers!!
