Brave browser gets more private with TorYou might be sharing more than you want when you go incognito. Brave aims to bring real privacy to private browsing by incorporating technology from the Tor Project in its browser.
Brave browser gets more private. If you've never heard of the browser known as Brave, it is very pro privacy and against ads, pop ups and tracking. There's a new version of Brave that now incorporates technology from Tour Project. Tour works by bouncing your communications all around the network so others cannot see what data you are requesting. In brave you'll be able to call up tor functionality in private browsing tabs. Either you can turn on a tor switch after you have a private tab open or you can select new private tab with tor from the file menu. Using tor in one tab does not affect any other tabs private or not. Now if you go with the tor option just be aware you may run into slow downs. Occasionally you may have to fill out a CAPTCHA to prove that you're a human being. Assuming you're a human. Brave wood tour private tabs is available for MAC and Windows. That same functionality will be coming to Brave for IOS and Android as well. Now if you're thinking, hey doesn't incognito cover my tracks just fine? Well you're trackable by your Internet protocol address, that's your IP address, even with that hat and sunglasses on. When you go with tour, your request is going from one server to the next to the next and so on. So the final computer receiving your initial request should have no idea what your IP address was. Also the way you request bounces from server to server changes every ten minutes making tracking even more difficult.
