Brave 0.20.30 not picking up system proxy settings


When my MacBook is connected to the corporate VPN, Brave 0.20.30 does not pick up the system’s proxy settings, and so it cannot see websites outside the intranet.

As soon as I disconnect from the VPN, Brave works fine again (and no longer crashes - so at least that part is good)

Hi @LogaRhythm

We’ve received reports that this is fixed with 0.23.31 which you can download from or GitHub

If you have a chance please give this updated version a try.



uninstall brave Browser, open your applications folder and drag brave Browser into the trash. You may will also want to delete your ~/Library/Application Support/braveBrowser-Data folder if you’re troubleshooting something and settings just won’t go away.


Hi @shelbyomi

The only thing I’d add to that is if you have Brave Payments enabled (in Preferences) make sure you back up your Brave Wallet before deleting your ~/Library/Application Support/brave folder, or else your Brave Wallet info will be lost and unable to be recovered.
