Binance Widget Now Available to Brave Android Users, Allowing Easy Trading, Buying, and Managing of Cryptocurrency
Today’s Brave Android browser update (version 1.17) features the Binance widget, which is already available to Brave desktop users and was the first exchange-browser integration of its kind last April. Brave Android users can now seamlessly trade and manage cryptocurrency assets, all without leaving their mobile browser.
Binance is the global blockchain and cryptocurrency infrastructure provider behind the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume and users, and Brave recently passed 20 million monthly active users and 7 million daily active users. This year, the browser also became the #1 rated browser in Google Play. The integration of the Binance widget directly into the Brave Android browser allows millions of users to access Binance.com or Binance.US and makes accessing cryptocurrency seamless.
The integration also enables users to easily view summaries, deposit and conduct transactions with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, BNB, Ripple, Litecoin, and many others supported by Binance.
Like desktop users, Android users interact with the Binance widget from the New Tab page in the browser. Users follow these simple steps to get started:
- Click “Connect” on the widget to connect the Binance widget to Binance
- Authenticate with Binance to enumerate any assets held by Binance
- To disconnect, click “Disconnect” from the dropdown menu in the widget
Once they are connected, users can access several functions:
- Summary: Viewing Binance account asset balances
- Deposit: Listing supported assets in the account, searching for specific assets, and viewing fiat value (Selecting an asset from this list will also reveal the deposit address in text and QRCode form)
- Convert: Converting from one asset to another (A conversion quote is displayed for 30 seconds; the Binance widget reflects the new balance in the “summary” tab soon after the conversion has completed)
- Buy: Buying and selling crypto assets (Purchases are reflected in the Binance widget shortly after they have concluded)
The integration is designed to preserve the user’s privacy and provide a safer way to buy and sell cryptocurrency. The Binance widget is built directly into the Brave Android browser and API calls can only be made into Binance if the user authenticates via OAuth and interacts with the widget. Once the user disconnects the widget, the Brave browser cannot access the account until the user reconnects the account. Users who wish to hide the Binance widget on the New Tab page can select the Edit option to open the widget stack to manage the Binance widget.
The Binance widget will be available on Brave’s iOS browser in the coming months.

Brave opposes FLoC, a recent Google proposal that would have your browser share your browsing behavior and interests by default with every site and advertiser with which you interact.
You can learn quite a bit about a browser from observing the requests it makes in its first moments with a new user profile. Often, a cursory examination will tell you a great deal about how the browser thinks about, and handles, user privacy and security.
This post presents “ephemeral site storage”, a new strategy for managing third-party storage in Brave, designed to improve Web compatibility, while maintaining the same level of privacy protection.
