Will VirtualShield protect my Brave browser?

Yes, it will! Your Brave web browser and all of the websites you visit inside of Brave will be fully protected using VirtualShield.

Google Chrome Extension

Brave is built on top of the Chromium browser, this means Brave offers support for nearly all extensions that are compatible with Chrome.

There are two different options available if you'd like to protect Brave.
You can either install our desktop/mobile application (see below), or you can install our Google Chrome extension inside of your browser:

Tip: See our support article for more info on how to install the Google Chrome extension.

Which version do I choose?

The version you choose to install is entirely up to you. The Google Chrome extension will only protect the websites you visit inside of your browser. It will not protect the other software running on your device.

In order to encrypt your entire internet connection, our desktop/mobile application is recommended. The app will protect all of your browsers, including Brave.

The extensions were mostly designed for older computers and Operating Systems, such as Windows XP. However, there are a few advantages to installing the extension.

It won't conflict with your e-mail software, online games, or any of the devices connected to your WiFi network (printer, webcam, etc.). It will also allow you to connect with higher speeds.

Note: You only need one or the other, the app or the extension. You don't need both. If you try to connect using both at the same time they might interfere with each other.
