    Just updated to the most recent update, and I'm getting more ads that are normally blocked by this app, and they are targeted ads for my local area which means it's no longer private. What is going on? The shields don't block as many as they used to in the past. The only way I can prevent an ad is to refresh each page, but it's like playing Russian roulette when 3 out of 4 page refreshes it eventually blocks the ads. I reccomend this app to everyone but the last few updates have been buggy AF!

  2. Priya Ferreira-avatar

    Honestly I'm getting really, REALLY upset when I read some comments about the last update. Of course there are still some gaps to fill but brave is definitely on a good way! Never forget that whole system is still in the beginning. I'm really happy with the browser even so I also get some ad's in the last time. Still better than google!

  3. MaddieCatUltra-avatar

    It's a great browser and you already know it. You know it because you did so great making it! I have used it for 2 hours so far and guess what? 😮😮😮NO😮😮😮 ads! I 100% will recommend this browser to friends and family. It's great and Google's about to be beat! I have an Android which means I'm probably being tracked so this really helped. Thank you, Brave. - BRAVE user (see what I did there?) Edit on June 23, 2020 - ROBLOX Finally loaded! Feels empty without ads lol! PS 5 stars again!

  4. ZamBoppityPow-avatar

    This app works great for listening to music on YouTube because it keeps all tabs open when closed (same with desktop) but a problem I have is is that occasionally I get ads so I have to close then reopen the app, which doesn't happen on desktop. I am giving 4 stars because of that minor bug, but it barely happens. TLDR: Great for music, ad block works around 98% if the time

  5. Arjun M-avatar

    Great privacy focused browser. One feature to add is registering it in the share menu. Whenever I have a link, I want to share and open it in brave browser, I can't find brave browser in the share menu. All other browsers appear in the list though. Every update disables Enable the button toolbar setting, I have to set it again after each update is pushed. I have seen this happen almost 5-7 times now. Hence, 1 star lost in the rating :(

  6. Betty Anne Shores-avatar

    Betty Anne Shores


    When i first got this, it was fast and blocked ads. However, over the last few months, it's gotten slower and slower, started freezing regularly, and has a ridiculous number of updates. Plus the file size for a browser is huge. Now trying Edge instead.

  7. Marek P-avatar

    No customisation options for the home screen, sync hasn't been working for the longest time now. I received no brave ads during the year it was my daily browser despite opting in to rewards from the beginning, there is no way to earn BAT unless I use VPN in some specific countries. During the time I was using it I have noticed no improvements. Moved to Edge now, seems to be a better alternative to Chrome. And it can sync.

  8. Pranjal Sharma-avatar

    I used chrome as a default browser because of its performance, smoothness and features. Brave has all these things in a better way. The search, tabs, home, menu and bookmark button all are at the bottom of the screen increasing reachability and also the gesture to switch between tabs is there on the tabs button. Also it blocks ads and trackers which is good for privacy and there are brave rewards which are super cool. Browsing without any ads should be the way and brave does it very nicely.

  9. Jaron Balvanz-avatar

    This app is great when it works, right up until recently when it doesn't. It suddenly allows banner videos on web pages advertising Last of Us 2 and political adds to play before videos, thus defeating the purpose of using an adblocker. They go away if I reload the page but that is an additonal step that didn't previoisly. If it gets patched out I would update this review and it probably blocks more than it doesn't but I would like 0 like it used to be.

  10. wav ryder-avatar

    Glitchy AF. Last version worked well except for sync (which was disabled by dev team) and Brave Rewards. This update screwed up my settings and crashes frequently. Menu is sticky and doesn't always respond. Also noticed touch proximity is different. EDIT: New update (v 1.10.94) crashes the browser when attempting to verify mobile wallet with Uphold.

  11. Jason Williams-avatar

    I've enjoyed this app for a couple years. But now it seems like there's more and more ads every time I use it. I even see pop up ads while browsing recipe and fitness websites, and ads are starting to play before YouTube videos. It doesn't feel like it's an ad blocking browser anymore, despite it's claims of blocking ads. And to top it off, it frequently glitches the background playback and stops playing in the background. Why all the terrible changes?? I'm no longer happy with this product.

  12. Viswanathan .r-avatar

    When you are going to fix. Long time I am facing this issue. Bug in The default browser url bar. When we type anything in the search its keeps on loading never redirect to search. I have speed internet 150mbps. Kindly fix as soon as possible. I like to give 5 star after the fix.

  13. Mark Kitchens-avatar

    Ads? Really? I updated to the new version but still got ads in my face. I really don't understand how they get through but please fix this, I don't want to look at ads everytime I want to look at a new video especially when those ads are political nonsense.

  14. Kerry Cook-avatar

    I love this browser. The bugs for android are being addressed, and they have acknowledged other issues as well. Not just a great way for people to better understand cryptocurrency - but a lifeline for artists, musicians and content creators. Highly recommended as a chrome replacement.

  15. Playful Fingers-avatar

    Playful Fingers


    A fantastic experience The most loved feature for this app, in my view, is to watch Youtube without interference from those stupid ads. Brave allows the app on the background. Youtube will continue to play even when you go back to the home screen or open other apps or turn off the screen. I usually listen to horror story and this is the feature i have been looking for for a long time. Thanks Brave, you have my support.

  16. Raymond Nutzhorn-avatar

    Raymond Nutzhorn


    I somehow"pocket downloaded"😂 this app, I swear, I have no Idea where it came from or how long I've even had it on my phone until I saw the Icons a while back, I remember being busy & thought to myself that I'd look into it later..... Weeks went by because I had forgotten until now! I was checking it today, & I only gave it 3 stars for now, so I can now consciously try & use it as my default search bar/engine for a while & see if it does what you claim. So how & what do I get paid? So confused

  17. Zackary Slager-avatar

    Overall, I have had a wonderful experience with the app. Recently however, I found out that there is no support team to assist with anything. My app has been crashing for a while now, and I tried to email them to fix this issue due to security concerns about attempting to uninstall/reinstall the app. I recieved an automated message stating that "this is not an active support email address." There ARE NO OTHER DIRECT SUPPORT RESOURCES available.

  18. Gavin John-avatar

    I've used this browser since it's inception without issue it always bothered me that the BAT could not be moved but I waited patiently and accumulated 260 BAT. Then suddenly last month they all vanish and I'm back to zero. No customer service help at all not even a response. Now I look and wallet verification is available after I lost all my BAT for no reason and with no explanation. Brutal! I used to give brave such high praise and recommend to everyone.

  19. Danielle Broussard-avatar

    Danielle Broussard


    Last update rendered the app worthless. Completely freezes my phone every time I try to use it. There have been more and more bugs every update such as being logged out of site while using brave (doesn't happen with chrome) if there is a ad on the site that is loading it will freeze. Time to find something that works

  20. Brett Rodgers-avatar

    The privacy protections built into this browser are good, but that's about it. Brave is noticeably slower than Chrome, and about three times the size. The only possible saving grace would be the rewards, but unfortunately that's a bust, too, as the browser doesn't do a good job of recognizing mobile websites, so contributing is hard, and worse yet, my wallet keeps vanishing along with all the accumulated BAT.

  21. Marius-avatar

    Used to be good but now it's just another scam. Started seeing ads everywhere. Youtube has ads now even on desktop when using Brave. I guess Brave sold out. Time to switch to DuckDuckGo or Dissenter Browser which is a rebuild of this browser minus the corporate selling of adds. Dissenter Browser is not approved by Silicon Valley. If that doesn't sell it for you then the fact that it has built in Dissenter App will.

  22. Jhony Rao-avatar

    Using Brave for the 1st time and I think brave is one of the best browser. Little improvement needed. If you can make Options menu in grid form rather than list form then that will be great. It will help us to use Options menu with one hand. Kindly allow us to add on websites link on browsers home screen. Like recently used website are there. Kindly allow us to move add ons on home screen to up and down and to left and right. If you can do this your browser will become best on Android I guess

  23. rjnsd422-avatar

    1. To this day, This browser hangs a bit while scrolling. But, easy fix is to restart the app which is annoying. 2. Youtube Videos appearing through google search plays in the Youtube App even though I have checked the option of "instead play the video in browser" and the controls of youtube video on the notification bar doesn't work. Just stop/play works. Just these two major issues, after nearly 1 year of use. It would be great if you fix this. Because I consider this to be the best browser.

  24. Diwakar Potnuru-avatar

    Diwakar Potnuru


    Excellent browser. I'm searching for this kind of browser and I liked it. It blocks all types of annoying ads. But it needs some improvements 1) Please create an option to download videos which are available for online streaming as we see in UC Browser. 2) And when we download something in the private tabs, make sure it continues to download the content even after closing those private tabs. 3) Please make an option to sign into the browser with a Google account to sync bookmarks, history etc.

  25. AMB-avatar

    I tried most of the browsers for android and still like brave the most but there are some functions and features missing: - real dark mode like Kiwi Browser, everything dark - I would love to customize my tabs overview, its way to unorganized with a lot of tabs open, for example a list or other view like mozilla - being able to hide the cookie pop up when blocking them on sites. It's really annoying and I don't want to agree to them just to be able to read a site like the verge.

  26. Mateusz Walichnowski-avatar

    Brave app gets stuck when i scrolling on website. It can unstuck when i minimize app and restore it. It may be a problem with update chromium version? I have same problem with other browser after update it via google play store. One star because is no longer usable. Android 10 1.10.94

  27. John Suleiman-avatar

    This reminds me of chrome but it feels faster and more pirate then chrome. So I'm at a cross road on my browser choice which isnt easy because I've used chrome for years now and brave comes out of no where and makes questions my choices. Very fast and secure. I've noticed a reduction in ads in my face too.

  28. Chris Schembari-avatar

    Chris Schembari


    App claims that you can "earn tokens" for viewing ads, but you can't keep/spend them. You have no ownership over the tokens, so you're not really earning anything, just wasting your time viewing ads that are somehow claimed to be "not invasive". Tokens can only be given to websites in an automatic process that (so far as I can tell) is out of your control. I tried to opt out of the automatic contributions, but that apparently kicks you out of the rewards feature, too.

  29. David Tan-avatar

    I truly loved this browser, I loved how some sites loaded beautifully with no ads (occasionally I would get some hiccups that I would have to turn off the Brave shield for) and the general performance of the browser. However - Brave has been caught secretly inserting referral links when you visit certain sites, even when you manually type the site URL into the address bar. For a Browser marketed for Privacy, this is a major concern.

  30. Ullas Pranshu Kaushik-avatar

    Ullas Pranshu Kaushik


    I have been using this browser for a long time for it's ad free environment and video playback feature. And have had recommended it to many others. But with the recent updates I started to see a lot more issue. For ex; started seeing ads even though all the brave shield Option are ON. Also the video playback option isn't working anymore without switching to Desktop mode. Hope this message received well by the developer and they'd look into it.

  31. S Rowell-avatar

    Videos stop playing about 15sec into them, especially on Facebook. Clear data, heck delete and reinstall the browser and the situation sticks. No extensions ... saw tone-deaf Brave respond to this one on a Reddit post saying they don't allow login/sync to Google and Brave was confused as to why one would want extensions. Just getting a feel that Brave is falling out of it and not passing it off to a new energetic and in tune crew. Is Brave suffering from burnout?

  32. Mutated Zombie5-avatar

    Mutated Zombie5


    A great platform, and easily the best mobile browser. It offers unrivalled privacy and speeds. Plus it's a great way to support your favourite creators using brave rewards, instead of having to use PayPal or YouTubes weird subscription system I can pay the amount I want when I want. I would like to see the ability to withdraw your BAT though. And more inclusion in general with the BAT system. Like exclusive rewards. But that depends on creators in general.

  33. Ross-avatar

    Great browser but every single time an update is rolled out, the Appearance settings get reverted and it moves the toolbar back up to the top of the browser instead of the bottom where it's actually usable. No idea why this settings needs to be reverted, but it is extremely annoying to have to change this setting every time an update comes out.

  34. Jon Andujar-avatar

    A rather functional, lightweight browser that at first seemed unstoppable. However Google, being the annoyance they are, have begun to force intrusive ads through YouTube and disable the background video playback functionality that once worked so well. The internet becomes more monetized by the day. Crying shame. This browser still has one of the best ad blockers built in, and an easy to access script toggle option on the options panel. This app will be a 5 star app when it works for YT again.

  35. Sean Pettit-avatar

    This app was great until the latest update. I use it exclusively to watch YouTube ad free and while the screen is locked, and since the latest update it is showing ads at the start of videos. Will be using a different browser until this gets fixed. As soon as it's fixed (if it gets fixed) I'm coming back to Brave, though.

  36. John-avatar

    Used it for a long time, ad blocker doesn't work anymore, probably because Brave switched to Chromium. When everybody knows Google just wants to spy on people and steal their information through Chrome. Can't trust it as much anymore, but even DuckDuckGo is having this problem now on mobile...

  37. Paulo Bud-avatar

    The operation to close a tab and move to the next one is annoying. It's a 3-tap process. 1. Tap the tab button; 2. Tap close button; 3. Tap the next tab. It could be better to replace the Bookmarks button with a Close Tab button. And holding this Close Button could open recently closed tabs view.

  38. Brian Glovis-avatar

    After the latest update, all of my brave rewards disappeared (~187 BAT or $45.00). Now my wallet only shows the rewards for June (15 BAT or $3.45). The strange thing is I can see all of my earnings from previous months when I click "summary." I really wish that I could withdrawal my funds with uphold so I wouldn't have to worry about these issues. I will be happy to adjust my review if this issue is fixed.

  39. Emanuel Alexandru-avatar

    Emanuel Alexandru


    I'm going back to chrome because Brave misses some features: 1) Chrome loads pages faster as it supports AMP pages. Also, has data saver mode. 2) Brave doesn't sync my bookmarks between Android and desktop fast enough, it doesn't even have a way to share a link between the two. 3) I can't get my BAT to my uphold account. 4) I heard ad blockers hurt small pages a lot, I'm switching to only intrusive add blocker like Chrome's. 5)There aren't new features at all in Brave, it's not exciting anymore

  40. Edin Muminovic-avatar

    Great Browser that needs few more perks.. Really impressed with this browser taking into consideration that this is a free product. What we need for this to be PERFECT: 1. Option to add custom ad filters. Brave still misses some of them. We need option to add our custom ad filters 2. CAST - Ability to cast to a Chromecast. That is one important feature. Please add it. Otherwise great product.

  41. Jansen Ngo-avatar

    Love the playback feature in the background, but fails to block ads. In fact it is everywhere and it's annoying. I mainly use this browser for exercising, I don't want ads disrupting it.

  42. Bryan Sanil-avatar

    The best browser I've ever used ,hands down, simple minimilistic and easy to use , great features especially with the one where you get an option to watch some ads that will be beneficial to both sides. My default browser since two years :D

  43. Anon A. Miss-avatar

    Love this idea, but the mobile browser (that gives me more ads than the PC and Chromebook versions combined) gives me NO rewards. Uninstalling. Dosen't work well with Chromebook. Far too many functionality issues. I love the idea behind Brave, but I'm very disapointed in these issues.

  44. M.Zubair Fana-avatar

    I am using this app since long. Never had any issue with performance. So for this is the best Android browser on playstore. Ads and tracking blocker is phenomenal. Provides a good environment for browsing through different sites simultaneously. I would recommend every android user to ease there browing with Brave and have fun. Good job Developers.

  45. Aravind Pai-avatar

    Browser is great, but the gimmick "Brave Rewards" is done so poorly, that alone is worth giving 1 star rating. After reading the entire site word by word, clicking on every link and watching every video on the ad page, my attention is only 5%? What do you want me to do? Should I use the browser only to see the ads over and over again instead of ... you know, browsing the sites I want to browse?

  46. shah alam-avatar

    Few things needs to be improved. 1. Quick tiles are only available 4 currently, wish it could be 8 or 12 or may be configurable from settings menu. I know 12 would hide the screen which displays ad wallpaper. 2. Facebook opens only in basic mode even if I turn off the shield, this needs to be looked. Shall post more in future.

  47. Clerence Kong-avatar

    The new update for BraveBrowser is a perfect example of don't fix something that isn't broken. This apps used to be reliable and does the job of blocking the ads! but now..not anymore.

  48. Sean S-avatar

    Make the switch! Brave is pretty awesome and earning some extra BAT has been nice. Clean interface and I actually find the ads for rewards very cool, they're usually good products or services, and useful. The ads aren't intrusive, and you do not have to participate in the ads for cryptocurrency rewards program if you do not want to. The browser in itself is worth making the switch as it is based on Chrome and the interface is familiar. Great stuff (:

  49. Adish M R-avatar

    Uninstalling now. Youtube preview videos are playing automatically, even if i disabled it in browser and Google search settings. This is not happening with other browsers. More ads are also appearing comparing to old times. Page loading is getting slower after new updates. Sometimes browser freeze.

  50. Ethan Franks-avatar

    I wouldn't trust this app after the URL hijacking / affiliate code insertion fiasco (search "brave browser hijack affiliate" in the internet). Even if they patch this, this is never something reputable apps do, ever, full stop. Edit: Alternatives for Android include: Firefox Focus, Firefox + uBlock Origin, possibly others.

  51. Δημήτρης Γιάννος-avatar

    2 Complaints: 1. Every time I tap "Desktop Version" on a tab, it sends me to the previous page I was instead of keeping me to the same one, and sometimes it looks like it goes 2 pages before. 2. Have the ability to never keep history? And not just delete after a restart... Like, if I close a tab then it would forget everything of it there and then instead of going to "History" and delete. I don't think it's slower than Firefox/Chrome but isn't a lot faster either. The "shields" are good though.

    This is ok.but it cant beat chinese app uc browser unfortunately. In uc browser u can download torrent file directly. It convert magnet link into direct link automatically. For example u download a torrent magnet link from yts site then the after downloading this link u dont need any utorrent clint uc automatically open it and starts downloading.why chinese are so far....

  53. Soontaek Lee-avatar

    I like the browser but it randomly hangs while using it. I have to go to home screen and open it again for it to work. It's really annoying when it happens. (my device: SM-N960N)

  54. Saarah Saamah-avatar

    Excellent. With strong ad blocking services and beautiful, friendly interface, fine design make this app stand apart from the other apps of the same, except that it is a little bit slow while Firefox is faster than it. Hope the developers pay attention to this experience.

  55. Ringo Starr-avatar

    YouTube is shown full of ads, just like any usual non-ads blocking browser. And ads at the beginning of the vids are now also allowed. Brave is extremely high storage consumer. Honestly, I can't wait for a decent alternative to Brave. This Brave browser is just blocking only half the ads on pages.

    Hello everybody! Thanks to the developers for a really good browser! I want to suggest changing the location of the button (refresh), since the frequency of using it is much more common than the button (home) for example, and calling it from the extra menu is often inconvenient!

  57. Mark W-avatar

    Stability went backwards on 6/21, can't open the browser without the device rebooting. So much for regression testing. The only way I've found to fix this is to go into settings and quickly clear the cache/privacy data before it crashes.

    I will change this one star review when you address the mobile browser not showing publishers as verified. Your website 2 months ago said it was being corrected. It has not been. Otherwise, I think Brave for desktop is a fantastic way for newcomers to get into the crypto world. Mobile NEEDS Uphold functionality, though, since tipping our verified channels isn't working

  59. Mark Bailey-avatar

    I don't use this as my everyday browser. I mainly use it for news sites and a few other sites where ads and trackers are just too nauseating to tolerate. It's great for my purpose. There isn't negstive reason for not making it my main browser. I just use several different browsers because I like to easily separate accounts and some browsers work better for some sites.

  60. Ross Kulas-avatar

    Performance has been steadily getting worse and the block auto-play videos feature no longer works. Sometimes the menus are blank so I have to remember and guess the location of an option. Disappointing because I don't particularly want to move back to chrome, but Firefox is also poor and I enjoyed the inbuilt privacy.

    This is an excellent browser. After using it for just a day, it replaced my other 2 browsers and is now my default. I still have Chrome because of the bookmarks and sync but now I'm also installing Brave on Windows 10 because Brave will also sync between platforms and OS's. Kudos to the devs and many thanks for such an awesome browser.

    This Browser is good specially for ad free browsing experience and it's minimalistic UI. But its Downloading option needs to be upgraded.It doesn't get option to save downloaded files in a specific folder. And also if it's get play online option while downloading like Opera Mini or UC Browser it will be great. Please think on this upgradation.

  63. Tonci Validzic-avatar

    I've been using the browser for a while, worked perfectly until the latest update - it started showing ads even though the shield is on. Everything else works fine, but the main premise of the browser is it being ad-free, which it is not. Same thing with the desktop browser.

  64. Mega N-avatar

    I've only had good experiences with this app EXCEPT for yesterday when it wouldn't load any pages. I had to uninstall and install it again and now it's working. Other than that, no complaints about loading time or ads getting through. Looks good as a browser to me. Favourite mobile browser app.

  65. Bill Baggins-avatar

    I am constantly being barged with hacker warnings and virus warnings, I have addicuate or better virus protection, Am gonna have to get rid of it, which is a shame, I liked it for quite awhile, but then started getting bombarded with spam.

  66. sumit sircarr-avatar

    Absolutely awesome and highly recommended to every android user. It's user interface is neat and ad blocking features are so strong that it makes the browsing experience as smooth as butter... Well done team Brave, even 5 star rating is also low for this particular browser. Best of luck and keep it up !!!👍👍

  67. Mana Workforce-avatar

    Generally a great experience. However, I believe Google has deliberately made YouTube a negative experience on Brave. Things stall a lot, and crash a lot when navigating YouTube, not to mention some ads run and aren't blocked.

  68. III-avatar

    The app does a good job with blocking ads, and it used to block ALL YouTube ads, now it doesn't. Not sure if y'all are aware of this, however is this going to be a new thing or just kinda bug?

  69. Jordi Geerts-avatar

    I like it better than chrome but I wonder if it is at all possible to add in a QR scanner? I hate using a different app for that and with the Corona Virus, more and more places tend to use QR menus and offers and I think now is the time to start adding them natively to browsers as an addon.

  70. Ian White-avatar

    A very good privacy browser. I checked it with Panopticlick and results were very good. Check it yourself. Duck duck go go despite its claims returned only partial protection (please check in case I am being unjust). I will check all my browsers from now on and keep the best.

  71. Jose Santiago-avatar

    I used to adore this app but it really feels like with every update it gets slower and slower. There are far too many times where it outright freezes. I'd give it 1 star but I really do like this app so here's hoping the next updates actually improves it and does not hinder it.

  72. mohamed mlaieh-avatar

    I loved everything in this browser and it is my number 1 option if it doesn't make the background green while playing the video in a small space of the screen at top left when I play it in full screen mode

  73. Casey C.-avatar

    I've moved to Brave on my laptop and iPhone. The only device I am still hesitant to switch from Chrome is on this OnePlus 7 Pro and that is because Brave still does not support high refresh rates. Using Brave on this device always feels like a step back with the scrolling feeling blurry. I am ready to dump Chrome and its RAM hogging but not having high refresh still makes Brave an alternative but not the default.

    I like this app but it doesn't have the main features i was looking for. Like it doesn't have built-in video player which can preload full online video while watching that video. I will use an browser which has bookmark sync and video ceaching features even if that browser don't have any other features.

  75. a1_ geb-avatar

    One of the best browsers. I've used opera for quite long time but at the end chose to upgraded to brave bcoz brave is better and has faster loading time than my previous browser. Brave also has better UI, user-friendly and rewarded its user and developers for using its browser. Great job. Well done!

  76. Sarah Rupe-avatar

    I downloaded this app a long while ago, like a year ago I feel like. And now that I updated today, it is showing ads on Youtube. Which is the main reason I downloaded this browser. Other than that, I love the app.

  77. Heathen Gray-avatar

    I love brave. I've used it for years. But every update resets the tab bar to the top of the screen. Very annoying, but hard to fault anything else!

  78. Eric Campbell-avatar

    6/18 DOESN'T BLOCK AUTOPLAY VIDS, like twitter vid feeds- since Chromium project change in Fall '19 Android users can't backup/sync bookmarks. If you clear App data all are lost. This had been a known issue for 2+yrs w no resolution. Otherwise it does a good job of blocking pop ups, but these are 2key features.

  79. J-avatar

    This used to be a great browser. Unfortunately, it now simply doesn't work on many websites - pages don't load, pages don't display right, pages freeze. It is now worthless garbage. RIP.

  80. Mr a-avatar

    Was great now...Laggy. I would use this browser for everything now since the last update I get lags. I almost don't want to use it anymore but hoping they can get it fixed with an update soon. Till then one star.

  81. Megan Brown-avatar

    Absolutely amazing So I downloaded this app and have been using it for a little while and wow it is amazing,it is private automatically closes your tabs after you searched what you had to and it helps you read interesting.I would give this 5 stars if there was 10 stars I would give it a 10.And also it lets you change your appearance if you go to settings so if you want to change your appearance and settings go change it!!Yep

  82. Gicia Simon-avatar

    Great app. Among other things, I love that one can play YouTube in the background as he/she does other things. On the downside, the app is too heavy. Updates don't help as they are always too big.

    I really like this app but lately there have been some issues with YouTube in full screen as well as ads popping out on the video; Background playing is also unstable sometimes it works and sometimes I have to restart the browser so that it does.

  84. Tash Robinson-avatar

    Was great, but going downhill. Sync hasn't worked for months and no sign of it getting fixed soon. Also brave for it's privacy centered marketing has its own privacy issues, search "brave browser hijack affiliate" for more info.

  85. Family HY-avatar

    Brave for the desktop is great but on Android I am constantly finding that loading a website can cause the app and even the OS to become unresponsive for 30 seconds or longer. This is a shame because I really like the features of Brave.

  86. Max M-avatar

    Pre roll YouTube as are not blocked and desktop addons to block it are not supported. Makes this browser unusable. Back to Firefox until it is resolved. Works fine on desktop edition. A proper ad block system needs to be implemented or updated.

    Its one of best browser available, just didn't rated it 5 because of one issue of downloading if I am downloading something and I change my app or lock my device, the download stops, I don't know why.... Please do something for this except this one it has everything required and best suitable browser.

  88. Angie Dong-avatar

    It was not possible to create a new sync chain to sync my mobile bookmarks with my computer. The only option was to create a new sync chain on PC thereby wiping everything on my phone if I sync it. If I had known this is the case I would never have used this browser.

  89. Cass Martin-avatar

    Was great until the latest update, now ads have started playing. 1 other issue is that the app randomly refreshes while you're on a site. You can be watching a video then it resets and starts the video again.

  90. Nikita Gwin-avatar

    Normally I have no issues with Brave, but for some reason I am now getting ads! I use it on my Chromebook and I get ads in both the app and desktop version of Brave when I use Youtube. Hopefully that will fix itself because I love Brave

    I want to replace uc with brave but... 1) cannot make folders in bookmarks. 2) can't switch tab view to list view. 3) in uc, while clearing download list, it ask if u want to delete file from storage or not.

  92. Mehul Gorkhana-avatar

    Good Experience One feature should be added in it. Only I need is watch online before downloading the clip or some kind of media. That's all. After all everything seems excellent.

  93. David P-avatar

    Can't get your funds. Waiting a year now to have ability to link 3 wallets to uphold. ios and android is a real issue. TIP: Only use brave browser on ur desktop or the rewards you get are essentially useless cause u cannot use ios or android brave browser with uphold. No fix in sight just false promises of them working on a resolve which is unlikely and on purpose!!!

  94. Jo jo-avatar

    I've been enjoying the mobile experience for awhile now. But I noticed it really lacks one important feature that the desktop version has. And that's the option to choose which scripts are blocked when the "block scripts" shield is active.

  95. Prasad R-avatar

    Waste.... While downloading a movie, i pause it for a while. After some times i resumed it and boom the file just disappeared from the download list... Amazing feature wow... Keep this amazing work..

  96. Awesome Feelings-avatar

    Awesome Feelings


    The recent update feels like alpha or beta version. The wallet is not organized. The app gets shuts frequently. Proper sync functionality is not there.

  97. Mike P-avatar

    Clean and very how far is camp out all the ads that pop up only problem is is some of my video sites they don't support so I can't watch anything on itdon't know why it doesn't support it but other than that works great no annoying ads you have the ability to earn crypto not a bad browser.

  98. Vatsal Hirpara-avatar

    It completely freezes sometimes while browsing, can't even go to my home screen or recent apps or close the app for few seconds. Device : realme XT android 10, Brave version : 1.10.94

  99. Clinton Mikel-avatar

    Missing two CRITICAL features: (1) tab sync; and (2) background tab loading (like Firefox android has). When these two issues are fixed this is a 5 star. Otherwise the best browser.

  100. David Ortiz-avatar

    It's been my default browser for months. Love it. Saves data. One thing though, any way you guys can include the option of adding folders within Bookmarks to be able to separate by categories?
