Install Brave Browser on Ubuntu 24.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Brave Browser on Ubuntu 24.04 LTS. Brave Browser, an open-source and privacy-focused web browser based on Chromium, has gained immense popularity for its robust ad and tracker-blocking capabilities, low resource usage, and support for Chrome extensions. If you’re an Ubuntu 24.04 user seeking a fast, secure, and privacy-respecting browsing experience, installing Brave Browser is an excellent choice.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Brave Browser on Ubuntu 24.04 (Noble Numbat). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • At least 4 GB of RAM and 20 GB of free disk space.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies.
  • An Ubuntu 24.04 system with root access or a user with sudo privileges.

Install Brave Browser on Ubuntu 24.04 LTS Noble Numbat

Step 1. Updating the Package Repository.

Before proceeding, it’s essential to update your system’s package lists to ensure you have access to the latest available packages. Open the terminal and run the following command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

The apt update command refreshes the package list, while apt upgrade installs the available updates. This step helps resolve any dependency issues and provides access to the latest security patches and bug fixes.

Step 2. Installing Brave Browser on Ubuntu 24.04.

  • Method 1: Install Brave via the Official Repository.

To verify the authenticity of the Brave packages, you need to import the Brave GPG key. Run the following command in the terminal:

sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg

Next, add the Brave repository to your system’s sources list by creating a new entry in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ directory. Run the following command:

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg arch=amd64] https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com/ stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list

After adding the Brave repository, update your system’s package lists again to ensure the newly added repository is recognized:

sudo apt update

You can now install the stable, beta, or nightly build of Brave Browser by running the corresponding command:

# Stable build
sudo apt install brave-browser

# Beta build
sudo apt install brave-browser-beta

# Nightly build
sudo apt install brave-browser-nightly

To verify the installed version of Brave Browser, open the terminal and run:

brave-browser --version
  • Method 2: Install Brave via Snap.

Snap is a universal package management system that allows you to install and run applications in a sandboxed environment, ensuring better security and isolation. If you prefer the convenience of Snap, you can install Brave Browser on Ubuntu 24.04 using the following steps:

Before proceeding, ensure that Snap is installed on your Ubuntu 24.04 system. Run the following command in the terminal:

sudo apt install snapd

Once Snap is installed, you can install the Brave Browser Snap package by running the following command:

sudo snap install brave

Step 3. Launch Brave on Ubuntu.

After a successful installation, you can launch Brave Browser from the application menu or by running brave-browser in the terminal. If you want to set Brave as your default browser, navigate to “Settings” > “Default Browser” and select “Brave Browser”.
