Description of the issue:
My bank has suddenly decided to refuse the Brave browser to connect to its online service.
I’ve been happily using Brave for years to do this, but it appears the bank has suddenly decided to ‘block’ Brave.
I contacted them to ask why this was done but have received duplicate replies along the lines of “the Brave browser is a small and ‘anonymous’ browser”.
Of course, this isn’t any answer to my question as to WHY the bank has suddenly decided this.
Before, I take this further with them, I’d love to hear from anyone with advice on why the bank would do such a thing? Have other banks/companies/institutions done this before?
