Brave Android password problem

When I try to enter username and password info into sites I visit regularly, about 80% of the time, my Android device either freezes completely, or will not allow me to enter login credentials. Most times when the brave browser screen freezes, I have to restart my phone.

First noticed this problem when the new red auto fill field that saves login credentials first appeared, maybe a month ago. Never turned the auto fill function on, can’t figure out how to turn it off.

I am using the latest version of brave.

Do I ditch brave or is this a fixable problem?
