In Brave my location is wrong in Google maps

when using the Brave browser my location is wrong in Google maps; works good in Safari, Chrome and Firefox.
I do not have a Brave notification in the “privacy” setttings in the system priorities from the Mac.


I too have the “same” issue. When I use Brave to go to I am taken to a location that is about 10 miles away. If however I use it show my correct location.

When using Chrome both urls go to the correct location.

If however, I use a private browser window in Brave it locates me correctly at both URLs without me signing in.

With Brave, on maps the logged-in account (at the top right corner of the map) is an account where I am actually logged out - I tried logged out of all accounts. In a Brave private window, the account shows me as logged out (as expected).

I hope I have provided some interesting insight.

Brave is up to date

Version 1.4.96 Chromium: 80.0.3987.132 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I would clear the cookies/cache for google.* and re-try again (as a first step)

Thanks fanboyz for the suggestion. Clearing the cache and cookies did it. I did not see a way in Brave to be selective for the google sites, so did everything.

Now both and maps show me at the right spot.
