There needs to be an option to turn this off. If the browser is not open there should be no need to access the internet. If it is checking for new versions or any other data, it should only do this when I open the browser.
If I have my firewall restrict access and ask for approval, Brave has issues with it.
I have completely deleted Brave.
I have had nothing but problems with ‘rewards’ so I completely opted out and the browser worked fine.
I hate how it handles bookmarks but I can live with it for the sake of more security.
The creepy, constant connection is a deal breaker for me.
I would love to use Brave if they would address this issue.
