Ya this feature is necessary. When I download Brave browser using Brave from https://brave.com/ It flags the download as malicious and displays This type of file can harm your computer. Do you want to keep BraveBrowserSetup.exe anyway.
How can Brave Browser show Brave Browser exe as malicious .
This issue should be fixed soon because if it marks all exe’s as malicious when we download some truly malicious file unknowingly we will keep it and think that Brave is showing fake warning and it is safe and run it … .
Its July 2022 and this is very annoying in Brave. Prompts like this offer no security. People just train to ignore and mindlessly click ‘keep’ for this kind of thing (both new and experienced users alike) And it does not exist in Chrome/Chromium. Horrible coding / design. I can’t believe this thread does not have more replies/ upvotes. Guess it’s just me that dislikes it. Oh well.
It’s now 2023 and the browser is doing this constantly! How do I disable these damn warnings? Some do not even give the option to keep the file. The only option is discard.
How about this… I decide, not you.
