Reviews From google play store

I give very few apps 5 stars on my first use but i did this one and recommended it to friends and family as the best ad blocking browser available. But now you've turned it into adware. I would never have used it if it started this way. So I'm taking away 4 of the 5 stars i gave and I'll no longer recommend it to anyone. It has a permanent ad for Brave Rewards which cannot be removed.


i loved this browser right up until this last update, whereby it seems they've gone the way of adblock plus and sold out. If you think there is a market out there for people who go out of their way to block ads, to want to see some "responsible" ones or receive some reward for so doing. ok. good luck with that, genuinely. But you HAVE to have a "no, im not in, i never will be and don't ever show me this again" option, your entire user base is made of people who fundamentally believe ads r evil


EDIT #2: Well, time to drop my rating again. Now Brave has an immovable triangle icon right in the damn address bar. It's for Brave Rewards encouraging you to click on...ads. An ad blocking browser wants you to click on ads. Think about that one. Brave team, STOP messing with toolbars/address bars, etc.! Remove the stupid triangle icon! EDIT: The Brave team added an option to disable the bottom toolbar, and fast! Good sign of a good developer. Rating restored.


I was introduced to Brave by a friend. I had been looking for a replacement to my sometimes very slow Chrome browser. Brave seemed to be the answer. The only downside, and also for me the crucial point of decision, whether to change browsers or not is the missing Password import ability. I have imported all bookmarks from Chrome and activated Brave sync from my Mac. The passwords imported into the browser on my Mac but wont sync over to my Phone. (Galaxy s10).


overall good, but not great browser. It is similar to chrome, which is nice, and the add block works pretty well. I wish it had the ability to re-order bookmarks, and have a startup page with the bookmarks as a list or tiles. I havr no interest in the new ability to opt into ads to make a couple dollars a year and hope they will remove the icons and content related to it.


Was a die hard fan of brave Browser because of privacy it provided & ad blocking capability. However, i am seeing lot of ads coming up recently along with BAT system in place. I am sceptical in future how they proceed with the system & force with their ads on to us. It was a great journey with you. Sadly, will be moving on to some other browser. All the best.


the browser is very fast and light. it blocks most ads like a champ. I don't fully understand why as a user, I would want to participate in the rewards program. I deliberately chose this browser to help reduce ads. Why would I choose to get paid to watch ads and then be forced to give that money away? Let us keep a portion and give some away and then it MIGHT be worth the time.


Brave browser is the fastest, safest and most polished browser that never crashes that i have ever used. Everyone should make the switch and stop illegal spying and tracking on us Also to the developers of Brave: Can you please update the compatability of your browser to enable compatability of our Kaspersky plugins? That is mega important that Brave learns to play well woth Kaspersky threat detection from the browser. I prefer for the worlds best Browser & worlds best anti-Virus work together.


Thank you! This browser is much smoother and faster than the previous browser I was using, and I feel a lot more secure with it too. The only thing more I would want is the ability to toggle a dark mode since I am prone to getting eyestrain from bright screens. To be honest, that's the one thing that's holding me back from completely switching over. I'll be watching for it to be added though!


Just what I was looking for and has the edge over opera, I use this on my tablet and phone mainly to watch YouTube, It blocks all the ads and even the ads that can interupt a video half way through. Opera fails to do this. I would of gone 5 stars but there is no dark mode.


I'm having issues Syncing all my devices. I have two Windows 10 PC's which refuse to Sync unless they start the sync chain. Two Android devices and a third Windows 10 PC have no issues syncing. Update: Same issue after update, but now bookmark shortcut changed (Update) Still having issues syncing with one of my devices. Also discovered new bookmarks are not syncing as well. I gave Brave long enough to fix it's issues. It's time to find a new browser again.


really? how long do we have to wait for a global dark mode? This has been asked for since 2016. And I mean websites also, not just header, your killing me. This is why Samsung Internet is my daily driver. Otherwise this browser is hands down the best browser for Android.


Impressive browser. It's fast, real fast. It takes care of ads too. I cannot use it as my primary browser and unfortunately, it cannot be moved to a sdcard and it takes up a bunch of storage. It's not for me until it is either made movable or has more functionality like Firefox (Android). Gotta uninstall it... 😞


Take all my APP's, but touch BRAVE & It's ON! This is how browsing was intended. Smooth/glitch free, slowdown/ad free, tracking/fingerprinting thwarted, AND you can immediately, on the spot, tip/compensate (real $) your favorite website owner/author/journalist/forward thinker showing them with action, not just lipservice, their site/content really matters to you while simultaneously encouraging them to keep up the great work! OR keep paying Ad makers to boldface disregard you & your privacy.


Not Good. I discovered this browser through a review on YouTube and downloaded the Android version to check it out. So, I first attempted to import my bookmarks to this browser but found no capability. Next, I looked for an email address where I could enquire about how to do this and, if applicable, the status of the development of that capability. No email. I was unable to find a way to communicate with you on your site either. This app is unusable for me. :-(


I am using it for Android x86 because this browser automatically requests Desktop sites. But, when loading desktop sites or playing videos it sometimes hangs the whole browser and sometimes the whole OS. That is very very Disturbing. On total, this browser is good and it is better than chrome, which is also based on chromium. Devs, please optimise this browser for Android x86


Great browser, but the Rewards feature is not ready for primetime. I couldn't figure out how to fund my token account. Then finally today there was a pop-up that said free tokens, with a Claim button. But still no tokens. I think the whole Rewards idea is fantastic; I've been waiting for a way to pay for content with micropayments for decades. But Brave needs to get their act together and make it work. Also, none of the websites I would want to fund are verified. Get the word out, Brave!


Get ready for frying your eyes with ALL WHITE, including taking over background color of your status bar. No color menu or highlighting ANYWHERE. No dark mode offered to change the boring and laser beam effect designed in by a developer with zero artistic sensibility. Sorry, Brave, but you should pay someone who understands colors rather than trying to be Apple or Google. I can't even stand it long enuf for trying out what all else may have gotten botched on this browser.


Brave has been my favourite browser for a good while but recent updates have broken it a bit. Now quite often putting in a search doesn't do anything and I have to close the browser from my apps and re-open it before searching works again. Before the tabs bar went to the bottom and rewards feature was added it was perfect.


Good browser. their update that put menu items at the bottom was I'll advised and unneeded. Will change rating if it goes back. *edit: Added 1 star back because of their polite comment. really dont like that menu at the bottom still, but the browser is top notch in every other area.


it definitely blocks ads. that's pretty nice. but today I got a message saying i could get points for watching privacy respecting ads. sure, i thought. the app goes through the whole process of teaching me what its about and stuff. then after it starts creating my wallet, the app says that it isnt available on my Pixel XL. 😂


The new layout is terrible! They had it right with the previous version. Now that the function keys are at the bottom of the browser it's just horrible interaction with the app and with any web page you're browsing. sometimes the change isn't needed when things were fluid, easy to interact throughout the browser.


Brave is a browser that treats you like a product. The user is fuel to generate microtransaction fees. BAT is the motherload of whitelisting combined with the motherload of developer extortion. In no way does this project contribute to a free, fair and open internet. l8r


Good but need more features like... 1. Block images option (When reading and don't wanna waste data and time on loading images) 2. Data saving mode. 3. Dark theme/Night mode. 4. Block potentially harmful websites. 5. Parental Control. 6. Clear cache option (in settings). 7. Download speed improvement. 8. Picture-in-picture mode. 9. Download videos option.


For those of you who are annoyed by the Brave Reaards button, there's a toggle for it in settings. The developers actually did learn from their last mistake and made it togglable. However ever since I updated for some reason I have to refresh almost every page I open in a new tab, sometimes twice, otherwise media doesn't load properly. It's not my connection, I have gigabit and it doesn't happen when I open things in the same tab.


Last update asks if you want to see adds. I personally hate adds and never want to watch any. I pay money not to see adds in the apps I buy, on a regular basis. I hope I can continue to use Brave add free, and I'd pay for a premium version for that to be the case.


Why do the developers of this app make the uses angry again and again? First it was the stupid bottom toolbar. Now it's "Brave Awards". The only option is "I'm in", no "no thank you". How do I get rid of it?


yes finally I found a browser that is not only a browser but take care of our web privacy, block unwanted adware and ads, cookies etc. I'm very happy to use this browser and suggesting this browser to others for use instead of other browsers. thanks developers. really you guys doing a wonderful work. thanks again.


This WAS a great app with no ads but it now a "Brave Rewards" button and notification has appeared, which is supposed to somehow encourage and "pay" me in an ad wallet for clicking on ads! I don't want any ads, I've never wanted ads. I don't wake up on a morning wondering what marvellous ads I'm going to be presented with today, I can't imagine anyone does. There doesn't seem to be a way of disabling it apart from the Uninstall button which I'll most likely do. Please provide a disable button!


I was a chrome user before i got know about bave and I switched to brave and it was a good decision then but now After the new update the apps stops working many times especially when multiple tabs are opened on my Android Oreo 8.0 this wasn't the case before the update but now it stops responding many times. Not even the complete dark mode is available. Now i feel i should go for the chrome again.


Still no "always incognito" or at least always start incognito. Further, what "private" browser has search engine location access on by default? Not even ask first? Don't tell me to email support. These are all design issues, as they were last time. Update adds notification spam. Don't need you to tell me about the app in my notifications. Yes I turned it off, but Google should copy Apple's off until you get permission approach.


UPDATE: They read what we said and fixed it. Yay. PAST: The taskbar is now moved to the bottom, which means if a site like reddit asks you if you would like to continue in their app or the Brave browser, you won't see the option for the latter because it will be blocked by the taskbar. Pity. Also doesn't block all ads or even stop redirects.


The Browser Is Great And I Have Been Using It For A Month Now But its still not Allowing Me To Earn From Watching Targeted Ads And When I Was Offered A Token Yesterday I Clicked On It To Collect The Reward And Nothing Happened Then It Dissapeared.


Well, that's a slap across the face for ad-blocking. I want nothing to do with Brace Rewards - the only reason I installed your browser was to escape this stupid idea. I want BRAVE not SLIGHTLY COWARDLY.


YOUR BROWSET IS GOOD, STOP CHANGING IT. Latest irritating change is the 'brave rewards' icon. Dont know or care what it is - get rid of the annoying icon please. I think I'll install an old apk and use it till it stops working.


Just needs support for extentions then I'd be all-in on this as a full-time browser! I love how this browser is built around privacy and not having to be bombarded with annoying ads. I think the BAT reward token system will help take back control of the internet from malicious advertisers and give the reigns to users, they're favorite creators, and responsible advertisers! I'm sure extentions will be available soon. Love everything about this project and recommend anyone using Chrome to switch!


I love this browser, I have control of adverts and what I see - and it is so simple and easy to use, cannot wait for rewards through watching adverts :) I can now visit websites I had stopped visiting as the adverts slowed it down so much or made it almost unusable (The Independent website was one) now I can access it and read it again... keep it up guys, you are awesome!


the chrome experience without Chrome. I dont like the intrusiveness of chrome. I dont like what google's done with its search or its browser. There are a lot of little things they do to restrict choice and making things more cumbersome in order to influence user behavior. Sheer market share has set it up so that chrome is the default for web developers. opens like Firefox just don't work reliably enough to be a daily driver. So, Brave meets that middle ground.


Ignore all these critical reviews. they're made by noobs who haven't looked through the settings or bothered to research how to correct their problems. this browser is awesome. end of.


Down voting till the rewards button is removable. please provide a way to remove the rewards button. this is super obnoxious. will return to 5 when resolved. edit, as others have stated, the new layout takes up a lot of space and would like an option to switch back. part of respecting the choices if your users is providing a way to consent or revoke consent to features, including button. it's ok to introduce these but to do so without our ability to restore it effectively ruins the experience.
