Description of the issue:
Brave Search automatically creates an https:// when I type in the address to my portfolio website. I don’t want it. It just want http:// as I work in ads. It’s a mess. I might have to stop using Brave (at least the search) if this is not fixable.

Is there something I can do to my site so https works for it?

Can somebody please help? I have no idea what I can do to fix this.

Brave Version (check About Brave):
Version 1.35.103 Chromium: 98.0.4758.102 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Operating System:
OS X Monterey (but I’m desperately trying to downgrade)

@soupking That’s in your Brave Shields settings. You can change it for just your one website if you want or you can disable it all together. It’s for security/privacy purposes where it automatically upgrades links to Secure, which helps protect data sent back and forth.

If you want to change it for a particular site, when you’re on it, on the top you’ll see the Lion type icon. Click on it and you’ll see the option for a toggle that says Connections upgraded to HTTPS

If you want to permanently change it for all sites you visit, then go to brave://settings/shields and look for that same toggle and set it to off.
