Brave Partners With iOS Firewall Developer, Guardian For Privacy-Enhanced Internet Browsing

Brave Software partners with iOS VPN creator Guardian Firewall + VPN, to integrate their technology to build the safest, fastest, and most private web browser on Apple devices. The privacy-focused firms aim at providing maximum security for your data and unwavering control over your data while using the “Brave Firewall + VPN, powered by Guardian”.

The new Brave Firewall + VPN is an iOS-only device built in the Brave browser app to offer users a more private, safer, and up to 6x faster browsing experience. According to the statement on Brave’s blog, the new app allows users to set up a firewall and VPN on the iOS browsers as well as protect users from data tracking apps installed.

Over the past few years, data privacy and safety has become a key requirement for most browser users. Brave browser, built on a blockchain, offers users full control over their data and incentivizes users using attention-based tokens, BAT, when they interact with privacy-preserving advertisements.

This new Firewall + VPN enhances the security and safety of private browsers by encrypting data sent over the internet by blocking any unauthorized tracking, encrypting any incoming data to the device, and blocking ads.

Brave Browser has witnessed significant growth over the past few years reaching 15 million monthly and 5.3 million daily users on the platform. This shows an increase in people wanting to keep their affairs private and data secure without the prying corporations and governments spying.

Speaking on the launch of the Firewall + VPN application, Brendan Eich, CEO of Brave Software said, the users are moving towards more “privacy-default rather than surveillance default” browsing platforms and apps.

“We evaluated over a dozen VPNs and chose Guardian because of the shared focus on user privacy of our two companies and the technical capabilities of Guardian,” Eich said.

“The Firewall + VPN is a crucial part of the Web experience that our users have wanted, and we’re thrilled to bring this capability to Brave.”

The partnership brings together like-minded privacy-focused ideas from Brave and Guardian promising protection of the privacy of users against the big companies selling data. Will Strafach, CEO at Guardian said, on the partnership,

“By integrating Guardian’s technology with Brave’s browser, we offer a powerful solution for a much-improved Web experience that’s three to six times faster than conventional browsers, and much safer and more private.”

The firewall comes at a premium of $9.99/ month or a flat annual rate of $99.99. While right now you won't be able to pay for the service in Basic Attention Token (BAT), developers intend to have that feature live by the end of the year.
