Send Link to Connected Devices from Brave on a Computer

Do you need to switch devices? Learn how to send links between connected devices using the Brave browser on your computer.

The Brave browser allows connecting two or more different devices running within Brave to sync and send the links bi-directionally. All we need is to scan the QR code or enter the sync chain code from the Brave computer using the Brave mobile browser. The connected devices can also sync browsing data.

Send Link to Connected Devices on Brave browser

Have you ever seen something cool on a web page and wanted to share it? Like sharing a link to a webpage from a computer to your phone. Usually, you would email the link to yourself to be able to access it from your phone or any other device.

Brave browser simplifies the process of sharing links. With the sync feature of the Brave browser, users can send a link to the devices connected to their computers. Since the browser does not have a feature to share links directly, users can use the Sync feature to share links.

Unfortunately, sharing links through sync restricts users from sharing the links only with connected devices.

Sharing links with connected devices through sync on the Brave browser is tedious. But once you get the hang of it, you will find it easy. I have created a comprehensive guide to help you understand this process.

The purpose of the sync feature is to enable users to synchronize their data on all their devices. Users can access their browsing data like extensions, open tabs, themes, passwords, apps, browser history, bookmarks, etc.

It also streamlines adding or deleting data by synchronizing the changes across all devices. With the help of the sync feature, users can also instantly send links to connected devices. The links are shared with the connected devices when the user sets up a Sync chain.

Setup Brave Sync Chain

Users must set up a sync chain first since sharing links without a sync chain is impossible. Setting up a sync chain only requires the user to do as the browser says during the process.

Here are the steps to set up a sync chain:

  1. Launch Brave browser on the computer.
  2. Click on the More horizontal 3bar icon menu and select on Sync option.
