Brave Firewall + VPN versus Guardian

Can anyone confirm whether there’s any difference between subscribing to Brave Firewall + VPN versus just signing up for Guardian’s Firewall + VPN directly? As far as I can tell the latter offers the exact same suite of features for the same price but with a separate app that offers the user more control and visibility. Am I missing something?

Relatedly, if you subscribe thru Brave, the Guardian app does not seem to recognize the subscription for the purposes of managing the VPN thru their native app.
