Brave Update task on Windows

Hello everyone,

I just have a quick question regarding Brave’s update mechanism on Windows. Brave installs two tasks for this purpose while I do not really understand their purpose. On the other hand, pretty much every other Browser I know does update automatically while using, usually there is an “there is an update available” overlay on the Browser’s menu and simply clicking on it installs it.

Interestingly, I did not notice a similar update notification in Brave. Is there none? Only while opening the “About Brave” page shows updates (of course, only if available) and installs them. Can I safely delete the Brave update tasks and only update while using Brave or does that mean that I need to always open the “About Brave” page for updating?

Thanks in advance!

Not an answer, but somebody please also see this one that asks basically the same question, but asks for more detail:

Thanks for the link; actually I think even though the questions are not exactly the same, still I think they are rather similar such that someone who knows the details can easily answer both. Hopefully someone competent clarify these two :sunglasses:
