  • Brave browser finally integrated the Binance widget, which allows instant access to users' Binance accounts.
  • The widget is enabled by default, and it can be connected, disconnected, and even removed.
  • Through it, users can buy crypto, convert it into different assets, and more.

Some time ago, Binance and Brave browser teamed up to bring quick and easy crypto trading from within the Brave browser itself. The two promised a small and simple widget that would allow users to quickly buy various cryptocurrencies.

Binance widget for Brave is finally out on desktop version

Now, the widget has finally arrived, and the privacy-oriented browser just integrated it into its desktop version. Yesterday’s announcement confirmed the integration, noting that the widget will be enabled by default.

Millions of Brave’s desktop users will see it as soon as they launch their browsers. While it was still in its testing phase, the widget was only available to Beta and Brave Nightly users. Now, it will pop up whenever the user opens a new window or tab.

Users will first be required to connect the widget with their account on Binance, of course. After the authentication process, they will have the ability to see their assets and trade at any time.  Not only that, but users also have a summary of the assets they hold. They can buy cryptos, deposit assets into their exchange account, convert their assets into any other cryptocurrency supported by the exchange.

Widgets are safe and under full control of the user

The widget also preserves user privacy completely. It only communicates with Binance API via authenticated user interaction. Even so, anyone with privacy concerns can just disconnect the widget. That would immediately stop the browser from interacting with their Binance account.

And, if the user changes their mind, they can just connect it again. It is even possible to hide it, for those who wish to remove it from view.

But, with around 13.5 million active users per month, Brave and Binance expect a lot of people to actually connect the widget. It is available on all desktop versions of Brave, including Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. It will also arrive on mobile devices later in 2020.
