Do i need to update brave browser to have the latest filters?

Do the adblock filters still get updated if i use an older version of brave browser?
edit:
im talking about the android version of the browser.
when i type in about:adblock, it returns with this

Hi @rohit34, I’m not sure about this so let me cc @kamil or @sriram for correction.

Adblock list updates independently and not tied to browser update AFAIK. You can see the Last update check for adblock list in about:adblock

Best,

@rohit34, What @eljuno said is correct. Adblock update isn’t tied with browser updates. List is independently updated and your browser will receive when its done. But if you wish to check you can close the browser and delete ABPFilterParserData.dat from your profile. Upon relaunch it downloads the latest list.
