Generally, Brave has been amazing. It changed my life. But there’s two issues.
- I received a notice that Brave was detected using camera permission in the background. Screenshot enclosed:
- Before that, for a day or two, when I tried to use Brave to do a web search, the screen was blank on multiple ocassions.
I am concerned about surveilance. It looked like I originally had Brave version V1.5.2? Not sure. In the evening of 11/22/19, I reinstalled Brave. The version I reinstalled happened to be version 1.5.1. It was also in the evening of 11/22/18 that I got the noticification of Brave using camera permission in the background for 7:29 pm. I’m not sure what time I reinstalled Brave because your history doesn’t have the time on it. I wish it did.
I found in my App permissions that all my browsers had permission to use the camera. Why do they need that? Why does Brave need permission to keep my phone from sleeping?
I understand you use Google Chrome as a base and that you used to be more independent of it? As a privacy/security conscious person, that bothered me. I’m not a tech person. I’m not sure why you did that, but it’s a concern.
I have Android operating system 8.1, Samsung Experience 9.5
Thank you for your assistance.
