By using all sorts of browsers we know, we can be almost certain that we are being tracked. However, more and more solutions focused on your privacy are emerging. Joe Rogan admits that he uses one of the – Brave Browser, a browser that doesn’t track unaware users.
On the Internet, we are being tracked
Each step we take on standard web browsers is logged by various algorithms to later display us personalized ads. Our data is valuable information for all advertisers these days.
Facebook tracks every user movement
The fact that Facebook collects user data is not known today. All you have to do is visit any site, to see its advertisement in your news after some time. Information is not collected only in the applications and pages where we log in through this social network. We are observed almost everywhere.
Activities outside of Facebook
At the beginning of the year, on the date of data protection, Facebook provided its users with some of the information it has on them. You can now see what information about your activity outside of Facebook is stored. In this way, you can check which applications and websites provide Facebook with the information collected about their users. Among other things, visits to the site, registrations, adding items to the shopping cart, and purchases are recorded.
Joe Rogan uses Brave Browser
Not everyone wants to be so closely watched by websites and applications. Facebook, Instagram, Google, and many others collect our data. Joe Rogan is an American sports commentator, stand upper, and podcaster. In his last podcast, he shared with the audience the information that he sometimes uses Brave Browser. This is a platform that is focused on users’ privacy. It is also closely related to blockchain and crypto. Rogan appreciated that he can use this browser to search for items he wants to buy, without worrying that he is being followed. He also mentions the browser DuckDuckGo but claims that Brave is a better choice.
Brave Browser is growing fast
Earlier this week Brave announced that it already has 15 million active users per month. Over 5 million people use it every day. Over the past six months, the number of active users has doubled, suggesting that there is a growing need for this type of browser. However, Brave does not completely remove ads. It leaves users a choice and rewards them with BAT tokens for watching ads. These can then be used to pay for the use of a premium account and as part of the fees for using paid sites.
Will this podcast increase the popularity of Brave?
Rogan has almost 8.6 million subscribers on YouTube. At the moment, the video of the Brave Browser conversation has almost 1.9 million views. His podcasts feature famous faces like Andreas Antonopoulos and Elon Musk. It seems that this recording will attract even more active users to Brave.
