Brave background process while browser is closed! Why?


So I am running Beta, and when Browser is closed (never even opened), there’s background process running. Windows 10.

Is this normal? Somewhat annoying! I hate running apps in my background when they are shut down!

Maybe they can remove this and activate this only when Brave is open?

Also, the option “Continue running background apps when Brave is closed” is set to OFF!



Can I see a screenshot of your task manager where the errant process is running?


Sure. Thanks.



This is the Brave updater service that may be checking for new updates to the build you’ve installed.


You can also disable the Continue running background apps when Brave is closed option in Settings. This allows websites to deliver notifications even when the browser is closed.
