Open QR code in Brave iOS not working

Description of the issue:

When I try to open a QR code I’ve scanned using the iOS camera app, Brave does not correctly open the link encoded in the QR code.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Set Brave as default iOS browser
  2. Open iOS camera app
  3. Point camera at QR code
  4. Tap on “Open in Brave” notification that pops up on screen

Expected result:

New tab should open in Brave based on the link encoded in the QR code. Instead, nothing happens. Brave opens to the home page.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

1.23 (

Mobile Device details

iPhone 8 running iOS 14.2

Additional Information:

Would be great to get this fixed, as this is preventing me from keeping Brave as the default browser on iOS. Also will note that opening links in other ways with Brave as the default browser works as expected (e.g. tapping a link in Messages opens in Brave as expected). It’s only opening QR codes from the iOS camera app that does not work. I have tried this with several different QR codes and confirmed that Brave doesn’t work with any of them. I’ve also confirmed that other 3rd party browsers are able to correctly open the QR code, as iOS Chrome opens the link correctly.
