Additional Information:

Hi there @aphoid, welcome to Community :smiley:

Thank you for reporting this issue.
Could you provide a screenshot of your Brave Shield & Privacy Settings Check to see if you have Allow universal links to open in external apps enabled.
Test that to see if that resolves your issue.

Best,
