I’ve been using Brave for several months with little issue. My organization uses Google products extensively and I haven’t had many problems other than a few very minor functional issues with spreadsheets etc.
Suddenly today, it seems Google may have made some changes that specificially interfere with using Shields Up on thier products.
If I go to Google Drive, I get a message saying “You are not signed in
You are signed out. Sign back in, then click ‘Retry’.” - Clicking the “Sign Back In” link just refreshes the error message and does not lead to a login option - Besides the fact that I’m not signed out in the first place. I can access specific documents and other account products.
Gmail has a message saying that my POP email account is having authentication issues and that I need to sign back in, and all my signature images are broken images.
All of this is fixed if I toggle to “Shields down” in Brave.
The weirdest part is that the Shields menu reports that there are 0 blocking of anything when activated.
I realize that this is all very likely an issue with Google changing things and probably not Brave malfunctioning, but I’m sure contacting Google support will not be helpful.
I just wanted to know if anyone else has this problem or if anyone has any input…
(except for “Stop using Google products.” or other like comments. I don’t need that sort of thing, thanks. )
