Brave Sync is a feature in the Brave Browser that allows you to sync various browser data across different devices without an account.
I asked a previous question here regarding Brave Sync’s privacy and security. The response was positive and seems to be on good authority:
Based on the sync design and my inspection (2022.10.04) of the source code (primarily the authentication of keyphrase exchange, scrypt stretch and salt transmission, and the client-side AES128-CTR-HMAC encryption), I think there’s good evidence for those claims.
Although, I’d like a more community-sourced answer for cross-checking. Perhaps we could get a larger set of eyes here to determine if it’s a good fit for Privacy Guides?
I don’t know which category it’d fit. I imagine “File Sharing and Sync”, but it’s a stretch. Regardless, I still think it’s a good idea to at least mention Brave Sync in the Brave sections on the Desktop/Mobile Browsers pages.
