Use Tor Browsing to Hide IP in Brave on your Computer

The Brave browser has many unique and built-in features unavailable on other browsers. One such feature is Tor Browsing mode.

The browser automatically hides the user’s location and network details and maintains strict privacy. We can easily switch to Tor Private Browsing Mode from the Menu.

In this guide, I have shared written instruction about:

Starting a Private Browsing with Tor

Private browsing with Tor has many benefits. It hides your IP address from others, adding an extra layer of security. Here are the steps to enable it:

  1. Launch Brave browser, and click on the More horizontal 3-bar icon menu.
  2. Select the New Private window with Tor from the menu.

  3. Check for connection status to change from Tor is connecting to Tor connected successfully on the new open tab.

You can now start browsing the internet privately with Tor browsing enabled within the Brave browser.

Alternatively, you can use the Brave keyboard shortcut. Press the Alt + Shift + N keys for Windows and Cmd + Option + N on Mac simultaneously to access the private window with Tor.

Bottom Line

Brave is a privacy-centric browser that has a unique take on the private or incognito mode. You can use the private window with Tor to browse the internet freely.

Using Tor as a proxy, the user’s IP address is kept under wraps. The user is connected to three computers, one after the other, with only one knowing where the connection is coming from. The other two do not know.

  1. I was hoping to see directions for IOS devices, unfortunately, those weren’t included. Would you please do an instructional guide for iPhones/IPads?

    Thank you.
