Brave Browser extended its level of security for the benefit of its users. In extending this, it has added brought in higher level of security for the iOs users.
Brave CEO Brendan Eich told Cointelegraph that he has been a long-time user of Guardian VPN, and now Brave is making it easier for its users to discover this service
“I’ve paid for their firewall already and I use it. But many users haven’t discovered it, with Brave we’re promoting it, making it easier, the switch is right there in the settings. So I think this is good for Guardian It’s good for Brave users who haven’t acquired a VPN.”
Through this upgrade Brave users will also be able to access to Guardian’s VPN with Basic Attention Tokens (BAT).
Brave Browser CEO also believes that law enforcement would have more valuable targets to pursue:
“Now, if this turns into ‘you must backdoor your browser, your open source browser’, I would be very surprised because it won’t really work. And of course, I think that the higher value targets for it through three letter agencies are the operating systems that the code is always running. We’re just an alternative browser. I don’t think we’re going to get any new subpoenas or national security letters yet. If we did, I couldn’t tell you because I’d be dead.”
However, he dose not sees Brave as a niche commodity for the users.
“What we don’t view ourselves as ‘niche’, every browser goes through it from zero to one, to in our case, heading toward 16 million users monthly. So, that’s not niche,that’s getting through the same growth curve that Firefox did back in the day. [There is] a rising sort of wave of consciousness that comes from this lead user cohort from and reporters who break these stories, antitrust regulators and others who are taking Google to court.”
