- Brave’s new Privacy Hub, like Safari’s Privacy Report, is aimed to educate users about the trackers and other privacy concerns that the browser is blocking.
- iOS’s anti-fingerprinting security has been beefed significantly in this release.
- Brave’s iOS app now has a certificate viewer that lets users verify that the site they’re browsing is authentic rather than a faked replica.
A browser with an emphasis on personal privacy In the latest version of Brave’s iOS app, a new Privacy Hub feature gives a summary of the trackers it has blocked for certain sites or for a given period of time.
Privacy Hub in Brave version 1.38 is aimed to educate users about the trackers and other privacy dangers Brave is preventing, just like Safari’s Privacy Report does.
iOS’s anti-fingerprinting security has also been beefed up with this upgrade. To identify and monitor people, fingerprinting uses several semi-identifiers (such as the size of a browser window or computer hardware information) to combine them into a single, unique identifier for each individual.
To prevent fingerprinting, Brave for iOS now randomises APIs that can be used for tracking instead of banning them, resulting in a smoother and more private browsing experience.
Brave’s iOS app now has a certificate viewer that lets users verify that the site they’re browsing is legitimate rather than a faked replica. Once the URL bar’s lock icon has been tapped, users can see if a page’s certificate is valid, trustable, or consistent with standards by checking the status of the certificate.
In recent years, Brave has acquired a lot of traction and popularity because of its privacy-focused approach. Google’s default search engine, Brave, was replaced last year by Brave Search, which utilises an independent index and does not track users or their search histories.
