Brave Browser Issues with Privacy
Though Brave is bringing out new projects, the browser is also facing privacy issues. Privacy is one thing most users look at as a feature before jumping on to any browser. Therefore many browsers focus on upholding users’ privacy policies to sell as a safe place to be. As many browsers take numerous steps to prevent or even stop the efforts of hackers, fraud sites and junk ads, the famous browser in terms of security and privacy, has failed to keep their user’s data safe.
According to reports from a Reddit user, instead of Brave’s Tor mode posting request to private Tor nodes, the highlighted privacy browser was, in turn, distributing information to DNS resolvers on a request for .onion domains. The post which was recently made on the Reddit platform prompt a careful look at outgoing DNS traffic on users local networks.
Though Brave’s response towards the accusations is quite infamous, the actual issue was that DNS resolvers are known to change a domain name in an IP address which implies that any .onion site searched by any user on the browser is not safe thus ISPs has the chance to view on users.
However, Brave browser is still a top browser. The web browser currently boasts of over more than 8 million and 25 million active daily and monthly users respectively.
