Tracking not blocked


Hello everyone,

why does Brave not hide my referer by default? How do I hide my referer? I thought this browser is about protecting me from ads and beeing tracked?

Tested with DuckDuckGo, Bing and Google:

Very disappointing!


Please post your Brave version from the about:Brave page and what OS you are on?
