On Wednesday Crypto centric browser Brave surpassed a massive milestone of over 50 million monthly active users (MAU) by the end of 2021.
Bravo is a chromium-based browser that packs nearly all the features available in popular browsers like Chrome and Edge.
However, the Brave browser’s privacy-focused feature makes it different from its counterparts. Brave does not track searches or share any details that reveal the identity of the users with tech giants like Google or Microsoft.
Additionally, with the increasing reports of data breaches and privacy concerns, people are going for privacy-concentric browsers like DuckDuckGo and Brave thereby resulting in the growth of these browsers.
The company said they observed tremendous growth on a year-by-year basis, and monthly active users doubled for the fifth year in a row.
The company also said that their monthly active users of Brave in December 2020 were 24 million and gradually increased to 50 million MAU by the end of 2021. Also, the company ended the year with 15.5 million daily active users (peak).
Brendan Eich, CEO and Co-founder of Brave said, passing 50 million users is a tremendous milestone for our company. It is also a powerful confirmation of the global movement underway led by users seeking alternatives to the surveillance economy.
In the blog post, he says that the company aims to double the growth again in 2022 and actively looks forward to engaging with more users who prioritize their privacy while surfing the internet and providing a way to support creators with Brave Rewards.
Additionally, the firm also offered the following key stats from 2021:
- 2.3 billion queries annualized on Brave Search. This went from 0 to190 million queries a month in less than 6 months, from public access in late June to December 2021.
- Most mobile growth of any browser in 2021 with more than 10M downloads.
- In the last 12 months, Brave’s ad platform has greatly expanded as revenue had grown 4x. Brave Ads campaigns were supported in about 200 countries with more than 7.5 billion ad confirmation events to date.
