VPN installed and running everytime there is an update

How do I stop the Brave VPN from starting every time it updates? While it doesn’t consume a lot of resources it does take some of my RAM and just sits there. Is it sending traffic somewhere? I did not ask for this service and I am not paying for it. I just want to use the browser. How can I stop this unwanted behavior?
