How do updates/ upgrades to browser / extensions work?

How do updates / upgrades work in Brave? Are they automatic? Are they manually initiated? Can they be deferred? Also the same question for extensions. I am using Firefox and can select when to apply an upgrade to the browser or to a particular extension but I don’t know how it works in Brave. I just installed Brave three days ago and like what I see. I’m just trying to figure out the ecosystem.


Thanks for reaching out.

Updates are automatic – I’m not actually sure if they can be disabled – I’d recommend not doing this in general anyway as our updates contain important security updates.

Extension updates should also be automatic – however, you can force/manually update extensions by going to Settings --> Extensions --> Manage Extensions --> Developer mode --> Update
