How does brave know that I just looked at my screen

Are you able to receive general desktop/push notifications?

Are you in a supported region (if so, which one)?
Yes, USA

Give us a brief description of the ads behavior you’re seeing
The Ads are working just fine, but the way they appear makes me curious.
I have noticed that the ads appear right when I get back to my unlocked computer, or walk close to it. I have experienced this for about an year now, and everytime I look back at my screen, I see an ad notification. I have experienced this on both my Windows and Mac computers.

The questions I have are:

  1. Is it using my device’s bluetooth to determine my proximity?
  2. Is it using my device’s camera to identify when I am looking at the screen?
  3. Does it detect when my mouse moves after inactivity?

Because, this could be a way a service/software could try to increase engagement with their ads, I am curious now.
