Brave Privacy Browser Launches Encrypted Video Calls Ahead of the Highly Criticized Zoom

Brave, the crypto-friendly and privacy-focused web browser, has launched an end-to-end encryption video call feature. This comes as the world moves to virtual meetings on platforms like Zoom following the COVID-19 pandemic. The service by Brave has since been launched as a solution to privacy challenges experienced with the current video conferencing platforms.

Dubbed ‘Brave Together’, it was rolled out on Brave’s testing and development platform, Brave Nightly. At the moment, this service supports encrypted video calls between two participants but is being tested to include more people in one call. Notably, Brave users can access this feature without signing up for an account.

In a tweet on May 26, Brave noted that its unlimited video conferencing feature is based on Jitsi, an open-source and encrypted video chat software.

Brave’s Value in Privacy

Brave has seen a significant spike in adoption rates in recent months; the platform recorded 1 million new users in March according to its Head of Marketing, Des Martin. This is a result of the platform’s privacy-centric approach coupled with the Basic Attention Token (BAT) as a means to power its ecosystem. Compared to a platform like Zoom, Brave Together proposes more value in terms of privacy given the platform’s history and focus on this area.

While Zoom has also seen a surge in numbers, it has been fairly criticized for its lack of privacy. In fact, the platform was banned by SpaceX, the first private company to make great strides into visiting space. Going by these projections, Brave Together stands a chance in the video conferencing market which onboarded all-time highs amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
