Many of my friends and fans reported to me that after downloading the Brave Browser Setup (not necessarily from my referral link) that the setup .exe file has a basic setup icon that is so common on the internet among hackers. These types of basic/simple setup icons are either used for old setup files or adware/malware infected setup files. This issue is easy to solve. It just needs changing the setup file icon to the Brave icon.
