Can you tell me where you’re opening the external links from? On my end, I’m able to visit Youtube, Twitter, and Amazon apps and open links from the apps in Brave without issue.

Ok let me explain this clearly.
I’m not opening links from the sites you mentioned in the brave app itself.
The issue is.
You use certain apps on your phone, sometimes those apps opens links in your default browser, for me the default browser is brave on my iPhone.
Brave app is not even opening if i open those links from those apps, I’m not seeing the issue consistently, but i can see the issue sometimes.

The app that opens certain links in brave is : PROGRESSIVE

Again, if I open the Youtube app on my iOS device, or the Twitter app, or the Amazon app, if I click a link inside any of those applications on my iOS device, Brave will open the link. It is also set as my default browser.

So, again, can you tell me what specific apps you’re using where you are clicking on links that don’t open in Brave?

App name: Progressive
Available in app store

This may be a specific setting internal to the App, especially if you don’t see this same behavior when opening links from other Apps. I’ve reached out to iOS team to see if I can get more info.
