Brave Search Discussions Disable

Is there a way for me to disable the Brave Search Discussions feature?

Well… Brave Search has settings: https://search.brave.com/settings

and if you want to turn it off from Private Windows as well or if you clear data one exit or something, since it is a cookie, you can set it with the adblocker with set-cookie or trusted-set-cookie, for this, either will do the job, but it is better if you use the trusted one.

The difference is trusted will allow any value, expires and path, while non-trusted is restricted to values: from 0 to 15, true, false, yes, y, no, n, ok, accept, reject, allow, deny, and that’s it, no expires, no path. It allows reload, 1 argument(s) though.

Anyway, you use it like this:
go to brave://adblock and add:
search.brave.com##+js(trusted-set-cookie, useDiscussions, 0, 1year)

it works in Android and Desktop, not iOS.

The 1 year is good, because Brave restricts set cookie with JS to 7 days, that means this one will ‘reset’ the 7 days everytime you search anything, if you don’t then the set-cookie will only be session which means, it will get removed on browser exit.

the expires is in seconds or 1year, but the 1 year will be converted to 7 days anyway, just is faster than remembering 604800 for 7 days of seconds.

If you do it through settings it will be set for 6 months, but it won’t work available in Private windows or Tor, that’s why adblocker is a good way of doing it.

Thanks for the help!
