Listen to this article

privacy-focused browser Brave is Updates Its iOS app with a new Privacy Hub feature that shows a summary of the trackers you’ve blocked for specific sites or for a certain period of time.

Like the Safari Privacy Report, the new Privacy Center in version 1.38 of the browser is designed to educate users about the trackers and other privacy threats that Brave is blocking.

The update also improves fingerprint security for iOS. Fingerprinting is a technique used to identify and track people by combining several quasi-identifiers (small differences in each individual browser, such as the size of the browser window or details of a computer’s hardware) and assigning them to a single unique is combined into an identifier.

Brave for iOS now avoids fingerprinting by adding a small amount of randomization to APIs that support fingerprinting instead of disabling it, which can harm websites, making the browser experience easier and more private.

Additionally, Brave added a certificate viewer to its iOS app, which allows users to confirm that they are visiting a genuine site, and not a fake copy. To view a page’s certificate, users can tap the lock icon in the URL bar and then check whether a certificate is valid or revoked, trusted, or compliant (or not).

Brave has gained momentum and popularity in recent years for its focus on privacy. Last year, Brave removed Google as its default search engine and replaced it with the more privacy-oriented Brave Search, which uses an independent index and doesn’t track users or their searches. Brave for iOS is a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]
