Leo should be an opt in feature

I have used Brave for years and never heard of Leo until I bumped up against my phone and accidentally open it while working today. In less than 1 hour, my phone was hot to the touch and my battery was almost completely dead. Hours of video streaming have never managed to wear on my poor phone’s CPU like this junk did in maybe 45 minutes.

I know I don’t matter in the grand scheme of things but I for one always recommended Brave to normal people and I won’t be recommending it to friends so long as this is turned on by default.

This should be turned off by default and there should be an option to opt into it for those who think this may be worth running for them. The option to toggle on and off should be in the GUI and not a hidden feature flag.

Did the change the way it’s enabled? I had to accept something like a privacy policy to enable it, is that no longer the case?
