Privacy-Focused Brave Leo AI Assistant Comes to Android


A good number of browsers have AI assistants now. But if you prioritize your privacy the most, Brave Leo in the Brave browser is an easy choice. The browser introduced the AI assistant back in November of 2023. But so far, it has only been available on the desktop version of the browser.

Now, Brave is bringing Leo to Android, which will enable you to enjoy all of its perks on your mobile device. With this, Brave browser on Android has become a proper competitor to Microsoft Edge’s mobile version.

More About Brave Leo AI Assistant

As an AI assistant, Brave Leo can do a lot of different tasks. That includes answering your questions, translating web pages, and summarizing text and videos. You can also make it write code, create transcription of video and audio content, and generate text content. Brave designed all these features to save you time and let you stay more productive.

If you’re wondering which LLM model Leo uses, it’s Mixtral 8x7B. But Brave does offer you the option to opt for Claude Instant or LLaMA 2 13B model. The good thing about Mixtral 8x7B is that it works with multiple languages. That includes English, French, German, and Spanish.

Another good part about Brave Leo is that it focuses on your privacy. To ensure that, the first measure that it implements is a log-in-free tier. That is, you don’t need to put in your credentials to use the free tier of the AI assistant. This eliminates the risk of unwanted leaks of your sensitive information.

Next, Brave Leo doesn’t rely on chats with users for model training or optimization. That means all the conversation you have with the AI assistant is private. Brave takes this to the next level by proxying the user’s requests. The browser does that through an anonymization server. This anonymization also decouples the user IDs, which means no one can trace you back.

Moreover, Brave Leo wipes out the responses after it generates them. If you’re using the Anthropic Claude model, your responses will get deleted after 30 days. Lastly, the AI assistant doesn’t collect any user identifiers. That means the browser doesn’t store your IP address, location, or any personal information.

Why Does Privacy Matter and Why Should You Rely on Privacy-Focused Browsers Such as Brave?

While the convenience of AI assistants is undeniable, prioritizing privacy while browsing is crucial for several reasons:

Security

When browsing the web, you may encounter malicious websites or phishing attempts. In such cases, strong privacy practices can help protect your sensitive information from being stolen. This includes login credentials or financial details. Without this protection, intercepted data can be used for identity theft or other fraudulent activities.

Targeted Attacks

Online activities and browsing history can reveal your interests and vulnerabilities. This data can be exploited by malicious actors to launch targeted attacks. That includes phishing scams, malware-laced ads, or even social engineering attempts tailored to your specific interests. By minimizing the amount of data collected about your browsing habits, you reduce the risk of becoming a victim of such targeted attacks. And Brave Leo and the browser can help in this regard.

Control over your Data

You have the right to decide who has access to your information and how your information is being used. By prioritizing privacy-focused browsers and tools like Brave Leo, you maintain control over your data and ensure it’s not used for purposes you haven’t explicitly consented to.
