HOW DO I STOP BRAVE FROM KEEPING TILES IN MY NEW TAB PAGE

I tried clearing my browser history and did so successfully and i was told to restart brave which i did. I was surprised to see a list of my recently viewed sites even after completely clearing my history,cookies,auto fill,etc. I feel that this defeats the purpose of leaving no trace in your browser whatsoever.
I then went into my settings to see if i could disable it from showing whenever i open a new tab but lo there was no way to turn it off, i was surprised by this. I then discovered that you could remove the sites by clicking on the “x” on each individual thumb/tile. I tried and it worked fine but found it tiring as i had a large number of sites and couldn’t bring myself to click it time and time again.

  1. Open Preferences
  2. Select “my home page” in “A new tab shows”
  3. Clear it

Then you’ll get the blank new tab page
