Brave announced today that the Guardian-powered Firewall + VPN is now available on its desktop web browser. The service was already available on the mobile versions of the Brave web browser.
“Today, almost everyone uses the Internet on more than one device, like your laptop at home, and your phone on the go,” Brave’s announcement post notes. “Brave’s new cross-device VPN subscription model lets you connect and protect five devices–across Android and iOS, macOS and Windows–to one subscription.”

Brave’s Firewall + VPN service costs $9.99/month or $99.99/year, and it supports five devices per account across Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS. It is being rolled out in various regions over the next few days, the firm says, so if you don’t see it immediately, keep checking. As Brave notes, its browser already blocks ads and trackers on every webpage, but the Brave Firewall + VPN services also blocks trackers in every app on your phone, outside of its browser.
More specifically, Firewall + VPN masks your IP address, changes your location online, prevents your ISP from snooping on your activities, lets you access your favorite content no matter where you are geographically, and protects your Internet traffic via apps outside the Brave browser, the company notes. The service is powered by Guardian, which stores no log files and uses no cookies.
