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 ?
