Description of the issue:
Extremely high data usage over the past couple of days. I factory reset my phone on Tuesday night and reinstalled brave Wednesday morning. Since that time Brave managed to consume almost 900mb of data in the background. I only have one tab open to hacker news but that doesn’t seem like it would cause this problem. I’ve attached a screenshot of the data usage from the settings of my S8.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
- Install Brave.
- Run out of mobile data because it is too expensive in Canada.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Brave to not use almost 900mb of data in the background
Reproduces how often:
