Antivirus program says Brave is using my web cam

hello, my antivirus program Kaspersky told me to connect my browser support team to figure out why when i open the browser that i get a notification from my antivirus software that Brave is accessing my web camera… i have no extensions installed

@ShoShoB this is a known false positive due to it being oversensitive. When you visit various websites, Brave checks to see if that website might need access to webcams and then checks your settings to see if permission has been given to use it.

When Brave is doing this check on your settings and permissions, Kaspersky hits you with a notice that Brave is using it. They only do this because it’s actually checking if you have something connected and if there’s permission for it to be used.
