Does Brave block affiliate links?

Does Brave block affiliate links?

For example:

  • Naked links placed in text fields such as the description of a YouTube video
  • HTML links in a blog post
  • Direct affiliate links such as Amazon Affiliate links
  • Links from affiliate aggregators such as Skimlinks or VigLink

Brave does not presently block text links. Instead, we focus on preventing third-party trackers (and their dependent ads) from monitoring your activity online. Do you feel there are scenarios we ought to consider? Thank you for the feedback!


Hi Sampson,

Thanks for the answer. Much appreciated.

A further question to clarify:

If a publisher or blogger uses affiliate links in their blog post text content and a Brave user clicks on one, will the tracking be lost (thus denying them a commission because the merchant won’t know where the referral came from)?
