Brave Browser Privacy Policy

Last Updated January 02, 2017

Brave Browser Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes the information practices of the suite of Brave browsers made available by Brave Software, Inc. (“Brave”, “us”, “we” and/or “our”). Note, this privacy policy covers your use of the Brave browsers only, not our website or other products. For the brave.com website privacy policy, see: https://www.brave.com/website-privacy/

Overview

Brave is not in the business of selling personal information. We believe the best way to ensure your private personal information is protected is to make every effort to ensure we are not receiving your private personal information in the first place.

Collection & Use

We are committed to ensuring that Brave users’ private personal data remains private. As such, we do not collect user-identifiable data, browsing history, or IP addresses.

We use Mixpanel, a third-party application analytics service, to collect data from real-world application usage that is used to improve the Brave product — for example, to determine frequency of usage of particular product features. We use a self-hosted proxy server to hide users’ IP addresses from Mixpanel; we also rotate Mixpanel user IDs at least once every 90 days.

Brave Sync can be enabled to encrypt, store, and synchronize settings, bookmarks, history, and related data, but we do not have the keys to decrypt the data.

From time to time, we may make pre-release or experimental builds available that have different privacy characteristics than those of released Brave products. These experimental builds will come with a description of any changes from this policy.

We value your assistance in helping us improve Brave products, but you can opt out of Brave data collection in Preferences or Settings.

Notification of Privacy Policy Changes

Whenever we make a material change to the information collected through Brave or how we use it we’ll update the policy posted here. When this policy changes, we’ll announce it to let you know — or you can check back here after each update. We hope you’ll find any changes agreeable, but if you’re not comfortable with the info we collect or how we use it, we understand your choice to stop using Brave.

The new Brave browser blocks the ads and trackers that slow you down, chew up your bandwidth, and invade your privacy. Brave even lets you contribute to your favorite publishers automatically.
