Is HBr an electrophile

When HBr reacts with alkenes it acts as an electrophile since the pi electrons in the alkene react with the electrophilic H+ of HBr. This happens because the Br in HBr withdraws the electrons from the hydrogen since it is negative partially. Therefore, hydrogen is electrophilic or deficient in electrons.
