Offline-Indicator-V2 deprecated in Chromium 91

Description of the issue:
Annoying sticky “No internet connection” top bar even though there is internet connection.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Using a de-Googled phone with a restrictive firewall.
  2. Get a sticky “No internet connection” top bar.

Expected result:
There should be some kind of a setting to disable the connectivity detector, since Chromium 91 deprecated the Offline-Indicator-V2 flag.

Brave Version: 1.25.71

Deactivated the captive portal detection as a workaround, now the banner is gone.
Use these shell commands (in a terminal app with rooted phones or through an ADB shell):

  • For Android 7 or older
    settings put global captive_portal_detection_enabled 0

  • For Android 8 or newer
    settings put global captive_portal_mode 0

Then rebooted the phone.
