Web Whatsapp doesn't work on Brave. "Update Chrome"

Web Whatsapp isn’t working anymore.
When I try logging in it just says that I need to update Chrome, used Chrome and it worked fine. Brave is probably blocked.

I use the latest version of Brave Version 1.15.75 Chromium: 86.0.4240.99 (Official Build) (64-bit).
I’ve seen a forum post regarding this problem last year, Whatsapp probably just blocked the browser again.

Whatsapp Web works for me using; Version 1.15.76 Chromium: 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit) and it did on previous versions.

What is your shield cookie setting ? (If it is set to block all cookies, try changing it to cross-site). If it isnt this, maybe we can think of other things.

It was already cross-site unfortunately. Thanks for the helps anyways

You can check if any of your extensions are interfering, or try loading web.whatsapp.com in Private Window. If the latter works, then it could be an extension or cookie setting.

Hi! same thing happens to me today, the thing that i’ve discovered is that now whatsapp seemingly knows the things that the shield blocks, so the easy way to get rid of it for me was to unblock all the brave shields for this site in particular. I know it’s not so much help but it was the only thing that worked for me.

I found the solution, go to your phone on the whatsapp app and disconnect all web computers that were connected and then scan the QR code again, this works for me everytime.
