A Brave New Video Conference

Due to COVID-19 lockdowns, meetings, concerts, doctor appointments, and even your mom’s book club have gone virtual, creating a greater need than ever before for reliable video conferencing.

While Zoom has emerged as the platform of choice for many, it has faced backlash for significant privacy and security concerns. Hundreds of cases of unwanted trolls gaining access to users’ calls and posting obscene content (AKA “Zoom-bombings”) have occurred, prompting several companies like Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Bank of America to ban the use of the software altogether.

Luckily, there’s now a safer, new option. Brave, the open-source web browser, just launched an end-to-end encrypted video calling feature. The new service, called ‘Brave Together,’ lets users make unlimited free video calls between two participants, with no account necessary. According to Brave, the new feature is based on Jitsi, an open-source encrypted video calling software, and it’s currently testing multiple participants in a single call.
