Description of the issue:
Brave torrenting ignores the VPN extension and connects directly to other peers.
(Brave torrenting is also not available in TOR mode).
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Use TCPView to view internet connections
- Activate VPN extension Private Internet Access
- Notice all brave connections connect through customer.sharktech.net
- Start any torrent
- Notice many new connections directly to peers ips.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
All torrenting connections connect directly to peers.
All brave connections connect through customer.sharktech.net
Reproduces how often:
100% of attempts
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
I’m assuming it’s a Brave flaw and not PIA. This seems like a major oversight. Especially since torrenting is not enabled in private TOR windows. Using the desktop version of PIA is not an option in my situation
