Why does Brave (or Chromium or Google Chrome) want to accept incoming connections? (A pointer to the relevant browser source/component handling incoming connections would be helpful.)
I searched (googling and Brave content searches for “incoming”) and only found places where this question was asked re a related browser, and even then, find no answers. Most notably:
- On r/chrome : Do_you_want_google_chrome_to_accept_incoming connections - very detailed ask, with results of their googling, screen shots, (platform (also MacOS)), logs… by u/tomihasa
- Here on support.google.com with 5 upvotes, but locked and 0 replies. (Similar thread. Commiseration, but no answers; locked.)
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Launch Brave for the first time.
- See query.
Inform users why this is wanted before asking for it (preferably in-app, but at least in documentation or here.)
[Version 1.10.97 Chromium: 83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit)]
I read this might be related to notifications, depending on how they’re implemented. (Are they? In the most secure kind of implementation, are these needed? And assuming they are, what else are incoming connections used for by Brave?)
A pointer to the relevant source/component handling incoming connections would be helpful.
