Bave keeps logging me out of WordPress

When I am logged into my Wordpress backend (/wp-admin) if I leave that tab for more than 3 seconds and come back, Brave logs me out and I have to enter my WordPress credentials again.

This issue does NOT happen on any other browser.

When I installed Brave for the first time a couple months ago on my Mac, I initially encountered this issue.

I found a comment on Reddit that said to change this setting:
Privacy & security > Security > Use secure DNS
This was enabled by default. Toggling this OFF solved the issue

Now however, 2 months later this is happening again.

I checked the DNS setting and it is still off.

Any idea what I need to do here?
