Starting with the two most recent updates to Brave for MacOS, I have been receiving an error message that begins with the the text in the subject line above. In order to open Brave’s “Private Window with Tor”, I now have to go into a complicated Settings process to override the built-in security in MacOS Big Sur. I never had to do this before about 2 weeks ago. I have been using Big Sur from the day it was first released, and I always update to the latest release as soon as it is available. I have been using the Brave Private Window with TOR daily for more than a year. This error message is new, and it indicates that Apple no longer trusts a part of Brave that used to be trusted. As an individual, I can’t raise a bug report with Apple. As a developer of software that is made for Apple systems, Brave will have to be the party to negotiate the fix with Apple.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Install MacOS Big Sur.
- Install Brave.
- Launch Brave.
- Open a “New Private Window with Tor”
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
a new private window with TOR should open
Reproduces how often:
as many times as you wish, until you go into the MacOS Settings Panel / Security & Privacy / General, and follow the procedure in these Apple support Articles:
