Is the brave browser available on windows store legit?

I installed brave from windows store yesterday and I was wondering if brave available there is actually by brave.

Post the screenshot of which one exactly you are talking about.

Brave is available to download — free — from Brave’s home page:

I’m totally unable to comprehend why anyone would ever download software from other than its source … and pay for it. Can you explain?

This is the one.

So? What do you think? @chh_68

Looks good to me, but I cannot tell for sure as I am not a Windows user and have not touched Microsoft store even once.

Brave team (@Mattches) should make it clear if they have their browser on Microsoft store just like they did it for Epic’s Store (https://brave.com/epic-store/).

Firefox has a good support post for it https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/download-firefox-windows-microsoft-store. Brave does not have one right now.

One last question, when did brave officially start sharing brave via windows store? @Mattches

I’m actually not sure — I believe earlier this summer (June-ish?). Can confirm if you’d like?

According to this reddit post, late June

Yeah that’s what I thought (June). Just confirmed with a team member, the exact date was June 6th of this year.
