I installed Brave browser to use as… well, a browser. No problem there. But I’ve noticed the Brave icon appearing in some of my other apps, such as the BBC News app and some other browsers. Clicking the logo tells me that Brave has blocked various things. This is unexpected - as I am not using the Brave browser at the time - and seems to be undocumented. There is no obvious setting related to this.
No special steps to reproduce. Just use the internet connection for a while, and this happens.
Google Pixel 2, Android 8.1.0
I’ve specifically prevented Brave browser from starting up with the phone (Autostarts).
