Joe Rogan revealed that he uses the browser with a focus on privacy, Brave, in order to avoid Internet ads and tracking by Google.
The MMA commentator mentioned it in the episode , which includes American musician and comedian Reggie Watts.
This is one of the most popular mainstream affirmations in Brave history, with Rogan’s podcast being downloaded over 190 million times a month. The show was recently licensed exclusively for Spotify with a $ 100 million deal. The latest episode reported over 1.7 million views on YouTube in the first 24 hours.
They are watching you
In the two-and-a-half-hour episode, Rogan and Watts spent nearly 30 minutes discussing online anonymity, apps and ads.
“If you want to use Instagram or if you want to use Facebook, they will follow you.”
They discussed their experience with many of the most important social media apps, along with Google’s intensive monitoring and tracking, and cited a recent $ 5 billion lawsuit against Google for tracking users even in private without consent.
Rogan said that from time to time he sees an advertisement for a product that is worth exploring. Watts immediately recommended the Brave browser, emphasizing that it is his preferred browser because it allows him to avoid tracking.
Rogan added that he also uses Brave along with Duck Duck Go, which Watts says is ” not as good ” as Brave because “the search engine sucks .”
Watts even hinted at a future involving blockchain technology in general, saying:
“The future is divided.”

Earlier this week, Brave reached more than 15 million active users, up 125% over the past year, with more than 5 million active users per day.
