How do I stop Brave from saving offline copies of webpages?

Every time I close the browser and reopen it, the webpage I was on is displayed as “offline” and refreshing the page doesn’t make it go online. Is there a way to disable this feature? I never want pages saved as offline.

Brave Version: 1.16.76, Chromium 86.0.4240.198
Operating System: Android 11
Phone: Pixel 2

Hello @NicoleB

do you have brave on android @Tiko and could you help here

and have a nice day both of you :slight_smile:

Hello :slight_smile:

Well thank you dear @justsomeone1 I’m not sure I can help but ok, let’s try !

First @NicoleB, try to update to Brave 1.17.72 and see if it’s fix the issue.
Then, I had a look in the Brave settings (Android 8.1.0 here) and I don’t see anything relative to this “feature”. I’ll keep on searching while you update :wink:

thanks for your @Tiko

i found that but it for old version so need you to double check it

  • Saving pages for offline reading is a snap: Open a webpage, click 3dots menu (⋮) on the top right, click on Download icon. You can then find your saved pages in 3dots menu->Downloads.

so according to that she has to go to menu then download then remove the site from there
so can you check if that still valid for the new version

thanks a lot again and have a nice day :slight_smile:

I didn’t had such “feature”, even on past Brave Android versions :confused:
(on my version, the 3 dots are now on the bottom right ^^)

thanks a lot :slight_smile:

let us knock the door of @eljuno hope we did not wake him up in wrong time :joy:

Unless @NicoleB specifically did this :point_up: it’s hard to replicate on my end.

More like a internet connection issue, where when Brave failed to connect, it present the cached version of webpage. cc @Serg @sriram @Aa-ron @Mattches
