How to Set Brave as Default Browser on iPhone or iPad
The privacy-centric Brave web browser is gaining popularity, so it’s reasonable for iPhone and iPad users to wonder how they can change their default web browser to Brave in iOS or iPadOS. Fortunately, it’s really easy.
Setting Brave as the Default Web Browser on iPhone & iPad
Whether you’re on an iPhone or iPad does not matter, setting Brave as the default browser is the same.
- Download the Brave browser from the App Store if you have not done so already
- Go to “Settings” then scroll down to find “Brave”
- Tap on “Default Browser App”
- Tap to choose “Brave” as the default browser
- Close out of Settings and enjoy Brave as your default browser in iOS and iPadOS
If you just downloaded Brave and don’t see it in the Settings yet, open the Brave app first, then return to the Settings app to find Brave available.
Now any link you open through email, notes, messages, or apps, will launch directly in the Brave browser app.
You can change your default web browser on iPhone or iPad easily to any of the available browser apps available, but obviously we’re focusing on Brave here. These include Safari (the default browser), Chrome, Firefox, Firefox Focus, Edge, Brave, Opera, DuckDuckGo, and a few others.
Brave is cross platform compatible, meaning it’s available not only for iPhone and iPad, but also Mac, Windows, and Android, so if you like the Chromium-based browser, you can use it anywhere and everywhere you wish to.
