Clicking links in YouTube logs in Google account in browser

Fairly straightforward. Upon clearing all history data I am not logged in to any Google service. However, if I click a weblink in the YouTube app it opens said link in Brave, but at the same time it pushes a cookie or something over which logs me into YouTube/Google in the browser. Seems pretty predatory in my opinion. Any way to block this behavior?
