I got a dialog asking if I want to auto-update Brave and very unfortunately dismissed it without unchecking the option. I see no option in the preferences. I use a lot of private tabs (despite the poor Google implementation) and I don’t want to auto-restart the browser. Ever.
Can I ask why you want to disable auto-update? This is generally a bad idea for security reasons and is strongly advised against.
Restarting the browser kills all my private tabs. Unfortunately Brave does not support multi-account containers. Instead it just behave like Chromium. Unfortunately every single Chrome extension with this ability is ad/malware.
I travel a lot and for this reason I absolutely do NOT use Brave when on the road. Why? It will initiate a download of a large file without prompting. This is also why I block Apple and other chatty apps that treat me like a product and not a user.
Because THAT’S WHAT I WANT and I shouldn’t have to explain why.
You didn’t mention what environment you’re running on
EDIT: NEVER MIND … I missed the MacOS TAG : )
You can use the
--disable-auto-update runtime flag if you’re that interested stopping them.
This looks like a better method:
Both methods are an equal security risk so yes, fell free to use either.
