Bad site locks phone, cannot reopen brave

Description of the issue:

Mistyped “” and wound up on a malicious site. The site caused the iPhone to constantly pop up a phone number to call. Had to forcefully reset the phone. When attempting to reopen Brave the bad tab was still opened and there was no way to close it.

Had to uninstall and reinstall Brave to get it to work.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Use iPhone (7)
  2. Figure out which malicious site I hit (I can’t find it)
  3. Get prompted for phone call repeatedly
  4. Forceful restart (lock + volume down)
  5. Reopen Brave
  6. Repeat from 3

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

  • Brave allows the iPhone to get hammered with requests

Expected result:

  • A way to close all tabs or reset without them loading
  • A means to prevent auto-prompt for phone calls forced by a website

Reproduces how often:

  • Every time, if I can find that site again

Brave Version(about:brave):

  • iPhone Version 1.9.3 (

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
