Description of the issue:
When I open a link from email and my deafult browser is Safari, when the link opens the app, switching the browser to brave and opening the link doesn’t switch to the app.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Browse to this link in Safari https://likewise.com/list/25-Scariest-Movies-Youll-Ever-See-5f7ba4f7a86779005e1f8d4f?referrer=marketing&af_force_deeplink=true&af_dp=likewise:%2F%2Flistdetail%2F5a8cab4c958d870a34ae10fe%2F5f7ba4f7a86779005e1f8d4f&pid=Email&utm_source=Likewise&utm_medium=email&af_adset=25ScaryMovies&utm_campaign=190b0a3c15-Weekly_Watchlist_10%2F8&utm_term=0_184e9f0f19-190b0a3c15-74793404&c=generic
  2. See how it opens Likewise app if you have it installed.
  3. Open the same link in Brave browser. The link just browses to the website.

Expected result:
Brave shoukd behave like Safari when opening link from a website with its app installed. Same behavior happens for all other links when safari browser opena the link in the app.

Looks like your default browser is Safari so installing Brave won’t change your default browser automatically. You would have to make Brave your default browser if you want a link from within an email to open in Brave.

I can reproduce this behavior with a zoom link. Click it while you are in Safari and the zoom app will open. Click it while your are in Brave in the link will open in Brave.

Annoying. But I’m not sure whether or not this might be an iOS limitation.
