Brave autostarting

Description of the issue:
brave auto starting when desktop is started

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. turn the machine on
  2. connect to internet (optional)
  3. brave is started automatically before anything else

Expected result:
brave is only opened when i open it

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.16.68 Chromium: 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
checked autostart folders (/etc/xdg/autostart, xfce’s session and autostart not saving session), nothing there. in /usr/share/applications/brave-browser.desktop it’s started normally with only addition is --no-sandbox because it’s complicated in debian.

makes me wonder, why is a privacy focused browser behaving like malwares (starting itself automagically)?
