Safe Browing in new version of Brave

Which anti-phishing/anti-malware module is the new recently released version of Brave (now based on Chromium) using? Is it Google Safe Browsing or something else?

The new Chromium-based Brave uses Google Safe Browsing (in addition to other lists and heuristics in Shields). No requests are sent to Google — Brave runs a series of Safe Browsing proxies.

Thanks for the swift reply toml! That’s the answer I was hoping for. Am liking the ‘new’ Brave.
