Hi @KetaKongen,

We take a strong privacy-first approach with regard to user data and privacy.

Our Privacy Policy is available here: https://brave.com/privacy.html#software

With regard to your questions regarding protection from state authorities:

While Brave makes interception​ and exposure of user data more difficult​, it’s wise to not rely on any single source to fully protect and safeguard against those threat models.

State actors and other authorities can likely deploy other resources at their disposal outside of the web browser to identify and locate users.

The best approach for those cases is to understand your own threat model, and choose the tools and resources that best fit your particular situation.
