Hi guys,

I am delighted to report that the amazing people behind the Brave browser have followed in the footsteps of Signal and WhatsApp. They’re now allowing you to turn your Brave browser into a proxy that people in censored parts of the world can use to access the Internet. This is fantastic news. Pretty soon, there will be zero censorship, where people can access the Internet with little restrictions.

Follow these instructions to be part of the solution:

  • Make sure you are running the latest version (1.47)
  • Go to Settings
  • Go to Privacy and security
  • Go to TOR windows
  • From here, you have three options:
  • select built-in Bridge
  • request one from torproject.org
  • enter a bridge they received from a trusted source.

Note: The bridges are not listed publicly to protect them from the local regimes and their operators, who might try to block access to them, rendering them useless. You will need to know someone, and if you do not, you can always ask us 🙂

Is it safe? – this is a fair question, and the short answer is YES! Here is a statement from Brave about it:

“Neither Brave nor the Tor Project are aware of any serious risks associated with installing the Snowflake extension. Your IP address will not be published anywhere, and it will only be used to connect people to your computer in order to access the Tor network.

In addition, your computer will not be connecting directly to websites on behalf of someone else. Instead, your computer will be passing encrypted messages between the connected users and other computers on the Tor network.

The extension does not log the identity of users who have used your connection. Only aggregate statistics are visible in the extension panel”

Please share this message with as many people as you can and join the revolution and give someone in the world the gift of Internet freedom 🙂 🙂

Fair play to you, Brave!

All the best,

Max Roberts,
