MetaMask got harsh cirtic for using infura as they log IPs and trace user transactions.
I finally got the time to check if brave was using this service too.
To my very big surprise yes Brave does and their “solution” seems to be to proxy the request?!?!
My Expectations would be changing the RPC service to a non longing one while still proxying.
Better setup their own service an give their RPC link or at least inform users and give them a option to choose.
I get your point to some degree.
Yes for Internet communication you will always need an IP that you will communicate.
But for example a lot of Services related to the darknet and hidden services like darknetlive.com do not store more than needed and or purge all logs as soon as possible.
So if possible the service should purge his logs as fast as possible or do not store some in the first place which is not unheard of even if for now only 0,1% of all websites operate that way.
But we are not talking about websites we are talking about ethereum so more about a financial service.
Linking IPs and transactions in a public blockchain is not a good thing in no way.
Also the massive usage of infura is re-centralizing the whole distributed blockchain idea.
We are not only talking about the IP but also the analysis of transaction data.
