I am looking for a low-level, itemized breakdown of all communications exchanged with Brave, affiliates, and third-parties as a component of utilizing the browser. Does any such write-up exist? Has a code review occurred for Brave’s privacy claims?
Some potential areas where I anticipate the browser may reveal user metadata outside of the site being visited for which I’d like to understand what transpires, if there is any call to a non-local resource, when is the call made, if the user can opt out of that call, and what third-parties are involved are:
- Reported attack site detection
- Search box live-entry
- Micro-payment model
- Opening a new tab or window
- Visiting a web site
- DNS queries (including DNS over HTTP/HTTPS)
- Health Checks
- Any other telemetry, requests, API calls, or data exchanges made by the browser which are not explicitly initiated by the user including any periodic polling or reporting.
Are you able/willing to provide any of this data?
