Brave downloading / sending data at startup when in background

Description of the issue:


So I happened to notice that Brave connects to several servers/IPs at startup and downloads/sends quite alot of data.
First I thought that it was just the newsarticles on the startpage that loaded in the background but then I saw that the connections were still open after changing page so I’m not sure what to think.

I would just like to post a couple screenshots and perhaps someone could just confirm that this activity is not malicious ?

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

  1. Start Brave browser
  2. Do nothing

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Win 10
Brave - Version 1.37.111 Chromium: 100.0.4896.79 (Official Build) (64-bit)


No one know if this is normal Brave processes?
