Brave browser logo on a blue background.

Like with all other web browsers, you can change the Brave browser’s home page to any website of your choice. This lets you open that site in the browser by just clicking the Home button. We’ll show you how to set this up.

To make a site your home page, all you need is that site or web page’s web address (URL). You’ll type or paste this address in Brave, and the browser will make it your home page.
