Brave update policy

What is Braves update policy?

Ie. Can I turn off automated checking?

Once it knows an update is available, does it nag me al la FF?

Thanks, Buk.

Hi @Buk, Welcome to Community!
You won’t see update prompts, but you will see an update button top right of your browser window.
Brave won’t restart/update unless you click it.


Being kept informed I approve of; being nagged, I do not.


Hi Aa-ron,
When did this change as unless I have been imagining it updates have been automatic before now?

After reading this I clicked on About and got this -

Nearly up to date! Relaunch Brave to finish updating. Private windows won’t reopen.

Version 1.20.103 Chromium: 88.0.4324.152 (Official Build) (32-bit)

With a relaunch button to the side. I have never seen the word Update next to the 3 dashes icon.
on Win 7 if it makes any difference.

I’ve never seen that either (Windows 10).
