As soon as I open the list of bookmarks, Brave would make an outgoing connection to example2.com without me tapping on it, and without opening the actual website. I suspect Brave could be trying to retrieve the favicon, but I could be wrong.
Brave should not connect to any 3rd parties without my permission
