Hello @Culturecom

Thank you for reaching out and I’m sorry to hear you are going through this. Could you kindly use guest mode to see if the issue persist?

Be waiting for your response!

Hi. What is guest mode and how do I use it?

Hi again! @Culturecom

Thanks for your reply. In order to get a Private window, you’d have to hit the tabs button (like you’re trying to switch tabs, it’s a little box with a number showing how many tabs open). Then while it’s showing all open tabs, you’ll see the Private button to click on.

Let us know if that helps!

It works for me. Can you try upgrading to latest version which is 1.48.1?

Hi, OK, I tried the problem sites in a private tab, same result. I already have 1.48 installed, it doesn’t change anything, it still freezes.

PS I tried opening the desktop version of one site to see if that worked any better - it didn’t.

I still haven’t solved this problem. If you haven’t got a solution I’m just going to remove Brave from my phone. That would be too bad.
