Download installer from Brave only

Hello all,

I have searched all I could find in the already asked department. Here is the “issue”. I want to download the installer pkg from Brave. Don’t want the google play store pkg with tweeks in it.

However, any attempt to download runs me to the google play store. This includes desktop and android.

I would expect there is some sort of archive page with clear and orderly downloads to choose from.

I tried Github as one advised, but at no point in searching the many, many fixes and patches, did I see anything I could remotely consider as the installer pkg for android.

I tried over at Filehippo, but they are only showing the desktop browser.

Since your word is privacy, I am sure Brave has some archive page that is a clean install.

Anyone have the link to that page?

I thank you for replying. :slightly_smiling_face:

But still no idea which one is “suitable” for my android.

But I did find a download over on uptodown.com

@dkg ,

The APK packages at GitHub, that I reference, are installers from Brave. I updated my reply, above, with more info that I found online.

Thanks so much. You took a lot of time to help me, I appreciate it very much. Hopefully our exchange will help folks coming along later, asking the same question.
