3rd Party Gaming platform - Compatibility with Anti-cheat

Description of the issue:


We are a 3rd Party Gaming matchmaking platform. When users login to our platform. They have to download and install an anti-cheat. They can only start a game if the anti-cheat program is running. However for the Brave browser, the user is unable to do it by default and they have to turn off the shield. Can we please be in a whitelist of some sorts?

Thank you for your time.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Login to www.gonxt.com
  2. Click Play
  3. Launch/Download Anti-cheat.
  4. If Anti-cheat is running, an error will popup stating that it is unable to detect the anti-cheat if user clicks play.

Additional Information: 5. If the user disables the shield, there will be no problems.

Expected result:

  1. Launch/Download anti-cheat
  2. Click play
  3. Platform will search for a match.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.67.123 Chromium: 126.0.6478.126 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Does shields affect it?

Yes it does, turning off shields results in the expect behaviour. However, it would be great to be whitelisted.

Which specific shield option helps?

If I disable block scripts, the problem does not occur. Will there be a fix to this?

I get the frustration with Brave browser’s shield causing issues with your anti-cheat software. It reminds me of a tech hiccup I had when trying to play Spider Solitaire on a new browser update—sometimes those built-in protections can be a bit too cautious. Have you tried reaching out to Brave’s support directly? They might be able to whitelist your platform for smoother gaming sessions. Hopefully, they can help streamline things so players can jump into matches hassle-free.
