Additional Information:

Brave not mining in the background, have adblock (Brave Shields) and also block crypto mining scripts. 🤷

This is normal CMIIW. Brave use multiple process like other browsers do.

You can check which process is running via Brave’s Task Manager.

Menu > More tools > Task Manager or Shift + Esc for a shortcut.

And for this I would tagging @Mattches for enlightenment.

I don’t understand – what exactly is the support request here? Are you asking if Brave is crypto-mining in the background? Or are you saying you found cryptomining and are trying to discern if Brave is the culprit?

Or are you just asking about the high CPU usage in Brave?
