This is not a bug per se that hampers performance or weakens security or anything of that sort, but rather something very silly and funny. Brave calls itself “Google Brave” in the Brave android app!!
Steps to reproduce:
- Open Settings app and then go to “All apps”. Select Brave and then “Clear Data”. I am using MIUI, so it may be different in other ROMs. Simply put, open brave app’s details activity, the one that contains “force stop”, “clear data” and all those stuff.
- Select “Clear data” and then “Manage space”. This is similar to Google Chrome app’s. This opens another activity with the title that reads “Google Brave storage”. Yeah, that’s right, “Google Brave”!!!
I think what the developers did was replace all “Chrome” with “Brave”, but forgot to replace “Google Chrome” with “Brave”?? Just saying
