Windows 10 downgraded to Win7Pro
Brave Up to date and reinstalled 3 times
This is really driving me crazy, because I can’t remove ANY of my pintabs, and lowering the number of tabs isn’t helping.
I’m a dedicated “Duckduckgo” user, and it’s my designated Homepage. One day, I used Google for directions, and I’ve been stuck with Google.com ever since, which is particularly frustrating since I never pinned it, and signed up with Brave to avoid Google’s “prying eyes.”
This morning I decided to open up Brave thru my Protonmail VPN, and was happy to see that Google disappeared, which I believe is due to their “You can’t Sue Us” to Protonmail’s “Watch Us, See we won” relationship, forcing Google to both acknowledge and allow for Protonmail’s app in its store. But the other tabs still remain.
I’ve tried to unpin/remove other tabs within the VPN, but no luck.
So here’s my questions:
If Google can attach itself without my pinning it, then how safe is my browsing thru Brave?
