Having seen the changes in the last version of Brave for iOS, I wanted to transfer my BAT balance to the desktop instance I use. So I opened it and also checked my Uphold account.
To my surprise, I saw a transaction:
You sent XXX BAT to @BravePublishers.
From Brave Browser
What the heck is going on?!
I find it nasty and dishonest that the browser starts a transaction on my behalf, as it was initiated by me! I had automatic tipping turned off (and still have).
I use Brave because I want to donate BAT to the content creators I choose and not just automatically put everything into a big, shared “hat”.
