Hi @loveandlight - thank you for reporting. When you look at System Preferences - Privacy and Security Does Brave pop up?

Yes, it was unchecked. So I checked it and tried to re-open Brave. To no avail. Crashes

I am experiencing same issue since the last update (updated 20 min ago)

MacOS Catalina 10.15.3

open -a "Brave" --args --disable-gpu
