U2F/YubiKey (NFC) not working in Brave Android

@eljuno @mattches
Description of the issue:
I can’t use U2F NFC key (Yubikey 5 NFC) with Brave on Android. Browser detects the key and redirects you to Yubikey site and show an error.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave Android browser
  2. Log in to any service with U2F support as 2 factor authentication like Dropbox, etc…
  3. Bringing the YubiKey closer to the mobile phone.

Actual result::
Error (redirected to YubiKey page)

Expected result:
Log in successfully (In Google Chrome for Android works fine).

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave 1.3.2

Mobile Device details
OnePlus 7 Pro

Additional Information:
Issue reproduces every time. In Brave Desktop YubiKey works perfect (connected by USB).


I have a similar issue, in my case nothing happens, the phone detects the NFC and makes the sound, nothing happens on the browser while i am trying to login to my U2F activated account.
everything works as normal in Chrome browser.
