The browser is compatible with every major operating system including Windows, Android, iOS, and macOS. It also comes with 5 search engine’s built-in – including one of Brave’s partners, DuckDuckGo.
More about Proton VPN
Virtual private network software developed by Proton Technologies. Supported by all major operating systems, it utilizes OpenVPN and IKEv2 protocols to encrypt your connection with AES-256 bit encryption. All servers are owned by Proton Technologies.
When you activate your VPN connection, it creates an encrypted tunnel between the server and your device which strengthens your ability to browse the web in a secure and untracked way. Your data traffic is then sent through the tunnel, thus hiding it from anyone on the same network as well as your internet service provider. VPN’s are also used to spoof your location if you’re unable to access country-restricted services like Hulu, Netflix, or Spotify.

- Download and install Brave Web Browser.
- Install Proton VPN and sign up for an account.
