Still the same, moreover when I type those in search bar brave turns to chome.

I personally ran out of ideas what the issue could be. Hopefully a support team member will check your thread soon and provide their suggestions. Good luck :+1:


Really appreciate your efforts thanks a lot…!

Which Search Engine do you use BTW?

Can you change it to the Brave Engine or something else?

I use google currently.
Is brave engine good enough…?

Disable all extensions in current profile itself one more time (if not tested) and check.

I use Brave Engine too and its good.
It is very private, so I like it.

@ashKam Can you add a screenshot of the error page, and make sure it includes the entire URL bar? (You can repeat with a search for something random if you don’t want to expose your actual search term.)

Here it is

Did you check out the Anti-Virus I had suggested?

Yes I have tried doesn’t seem to be a virus issue

Thanks for the additional screenshot.

Can you click the ‘Lock’ icon at the left of the URL, then click ‘Certificate’ and add a screenshot of that box that opens up? It should show the certificate issuer, among other things.

This could be a dead-end but looking to see if there’s some easily discoverable session hijacking malware involved here.

OK, thanks, nothing to see there – looks normal.

I still have a sneaking feeling there’s some kind of malware involved somehow, but no clear evidence of it so far.

Sorry – can you re-confirm that:

  1. Creating a new browser profile shows the same results? Note that you need to ensure that you only have one browser profile window open, using the new profile, when testing this.
  2. Additionally, that disabling all your extensions did not resolve the issue?

No, Tried all
Created another profile
Disabled extensions
Still the same issue

Thanks a lot really appreciate the efforts.

I am also facing this issue. It’s not a virus issue i can confirm it, as I have checked on windows as well as linux and it is persistent. This started about a week ago for me, really annoying.

At this point, I would use both Firefox and Brave Browser.

Run in separate windows, the Developer Tools > Network for each browser.

Also run a program called NetLimiter 4.

And, in all three windows:

  • Developer Tools > Network (for Firefox)
  • Developer Tools > Network (for Brave Browser)
  • NetLimiter 4 main window

I would monitor the communications. You could narrow down, “OK. Here is what happens, in each window, when I get the reCAPTCHA warning” (or not - probably when using Firefox).

I am guessing, that the Google warning may not be accurate. Rather, some process is throwing that, because of some other issue at Google.

They “think” that your keyboard behavior is machine-like . . . instead of you.

On the other hand, you may wonder what they are doing, monitoring your key strokes -OR- whatever else they are also monitoring . . .

That something is thwarting, and so their method is upset, and they throw the alert at you.
