Brave Web Browser is a faster, free, secure web browser for iOS with a built-in AdBlocker that prevents tracking and provides security protection, and optimized data and battery experience.

Brave adblocker browser is designed with a built-in Ad Block to provide an ad-free and seamless browsing experience.

No external plugins or settings to manage or configure! Brave simply provides the fastest and most secure browsing experience available for iOS. Brave is designed for both speed and security, so you can enjoy lightning fast browsing without popups, malware and other annoyances.

Brave reduces page loading time, improves performance, and guards from ads infected with malware. Brave shows a 2x to 8x speed increase on iOS, so you will see a direct reduction in both battery and data plan consumption.

The Brave privacy browser also protects users with leading privacy and security features such as script blocking, 3rd party cookie blocking, and private incognito tabs. Others, including Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Aloha, Ghostery and the Dolphin browsers, fall short of the level of privacy and security protection that Brave provides.

* Built-in Ad-Block
* Pop-up blocker
* Saves data, Saves money
* Battery optimization
* Data optimization
* Tracking Protection
* Script Blocking
* 3rd party cookie blocking
* Bookmarks

About Brave
We have a mission to save the web by increasing browsing speed and safety for users, while growing ad revenue share for content creators.

The web has become a different place. With the ad-tech ecosystem out of control, users have revolted and blocking ads has become the new weapon of choice for improving their browsing speed, safety and privacy. Unfortunately, blocking alone results in a race to the bottom where nobody wins. Without the ability for content creators to earn money for their efforts, users could be left with fewer sites to browse, relegated to hand-picked content from controlled sources.

Brave aims to transform the online ad ecosystem with micropayments and a new revenue-sharing solution to give users and publishers a better deal, where fast, safe browsing is the path to a brighter future for the open web.

What’s New

Version 1.7

This is a really big release for us. We’ve changed out a bunch of stuff under the hood and rebuilt a lot of other stuff from scratch. Hopefully the only thing you’ll notice is that everything’s smoother and more reliable.

- We’ve changed out the browser engine for WKWebView — that’s the part of the browser which fetches and renders sites. That’s a pretty important, piece, so this is a big upgrade for us.
- We now support even more of the new stuff in iOS 12. We’re really excited about Password AutoFill. If you’re not using a password-manager, there’s never been a better time to start. Seriously, use a password manager. You can enable AutoFill in the Settings app > Passwords & Accounts > AutoFill Passwords.

This new version of Brave works on devices running iOS 12 and beyond. If you’re still on iOS 11 please upgrade. It doesn’t take long, and it makes a big difference.

Thank you for using Brave, and stay tuned for more exciting future updates

Most recent update broke it

I liked the previous versions of this browser but the most recent update has really screwed it up. Some sites are entirely unreachable and some times the blockers are too aggressive and block late portions of the content not just the ads. Most videos will not load if they even show up. Disappointed.

Huge Problem... DEVS please read..

Great browser so far... i only use private browsing 99% of the time. After updating to the latest release, ALL.. and i mean ALLLL my private tabs i have ever made were all recovered immediately after launching the Application. I even go as far as frequently wiping my data in the settings. How is this possible? I don't understand, the only irrational conclusion which makes the most sense is that there is no real private browsing.

New update needed more testing.

Old version worked better. Some links are difficult, or won’t, click. I have to either zoom in and out or long press to get some to fire. Opening links in tabs is somewhat broken. The new tab either doesn’t show up right away at all or appears transparent next to the current page. It’s almost like it waits for a server response before forming the UI properly.

From a user perspective I really see no improvements with this redesign, just a few downsides.
