Brave VPN blocks unwanted trackers, viruses, and more from your device. A virtual private network (VPN) creates a private network for you and your device, no matter how you’re accessing the internet—even on a public or non-secure Wi-Fi network. Brave VPN offers the benefits of both VPN and a firewall to protect everything you do online. It blocks unwanted surveillance with protection at the network level, on your entire device, on every app you use.
