Brave Browser pushes for new Global privacy standard and other companies are joining for the one-click privacy as we are reading more in today’s blockchain latest news.
Brave Browser pushes for a new solution that will give users a simple way to opt-out of privacy with a single switch. Other companies like DuckDuckGo and The Washington Post are supporting the privacy standard as well. The standard is backed by privacy laws like California’s CCPA and EU’s GDPR. Brave which is a popular crypto-enabled web browser announced its involvement in the new privacy standard called Global Privacy Control.
Global Privacy Control allows the users to set one single set in their browser which will instruct websites not to share, track or sell their data. If the new standard is adopted, the users won’t have to opt-out of web-tracking each time they visit a website which is an experience that is common now. The standard can be accessed through several browsers and apps like Brave, OptMeowt, Privacy Badger, Disconnect, and DuckDuckGo. Other websites and companies like the New York Times, The Financial Times, and The Washington Post announced plans to comply with the standard. Global Privacy Control was compared to other privacy efforts like the Do Not Trace.
However, the new standard has stronger legal backing as the California Consumer Privacy Act and the General Data Protection Regulation suggest privacy controls of this type. The standard is not legally binding yet but the existence of these laws could encourage the companies to comply with it. Global Privacy Control is not directly related to Brave’s cryptocurrency or to other blockchain features not will the new standard give the users more security for holding cryptocurrency. The company’s privacy efforts make room for Brave’s own BAT token advertising company. There were several mainstream news sites like the LA Times, the Guardian, and The Washington Post that registered as Brave verified publishers to earn additional revenue.
Standards that discourage traditional user data collection will be able to cause publishers to turn to Brave and other revenue sources. Today’s news only suggests that there are companies that are willing to further work on privacy with the technology industry, at least when there’s a strong coalition behind the suggestion.
