Thank you for reaching out to us.
Can I ask what your default search engine is set to at this time? Additionally, are you connected to a VPN?


I have set the search engine to google on all my devices. I am not using VPN. Same happens on all devices where I am using Brave.

Can you please try clearing your cache/browsing data (Menu --> History --> Clear browsing data)and then see if the issue persists?


I’ve cleared cache/browsing data and for now it looks good. Will test for day or two and will let you know.
