Brave Talk is a new addition to Brave’s suite of tools that provide no tracing facility. Brave’s browser also includes Brave Search and Brave News that blocks the tracker by default. Brave Talk does not steal your information and sells it to other third parties like other video-conferencing service providers. Brave Talk is a one-to-one video call and chat feature that allows users to enable multiple layers of encryption on calls, so eavesdroppers cannot steal your information like a conversation, images, and other activities.

How Brave Talk is better privacy matter feature
Brave Talk is a one-to-one video conferencing feature and can be used directly from the browser. Brave talk does not save any information during calls like the other video-conferencing service provider. Also, Brave Talk does not require you to login or sign up for video calls, but still, if you sign up into Brave Talk, all Brave Knows is that you are authorized to use the service, not who you are. Brave says Brave Talk “ensures that we don’t know who users are and to whom they are talking.” Unlike Zoom and other videos conferencing services, the company knows who you are when you sign in, Brave Talk, though, uses an anonymous credential system that keeps Brave in the dark about your identity, according to Brendan Eich, CEO of Brave.
Big competition to other video conferencing app
Brave Talk is perfectly designed to protect privacy better than existing options like Zoom. Unlike Zoom and other videos conferencing services, Brave Talk does not steal and sell user’s information to others for making money. Brave Talk servers don’t save metadata, so calls, images and other information are never recorded or shared without user consent. To create equals, Brave Talk free version for android and iOS app is coming in the next few weeks.
