Websites not secured on Brave browser?

Description of the issue:
Several websites that I visit are showing as unsecure, this can be resolved by refreshing the page but when I first log on the default is unsecure.

Reproduces how often:
Every time

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
windows 10, latest version of brave…

Additional Information:
I first thought this was a website issue (maybe their certificate is expired), but after checking with other browsers chrome etc I was stunned to find websites show up as secure. This is basically the exact opposite of what Brave stands for is it not? anyone else having this issue? two of the websites that I see this happen most often is stocktwits and yahoo finance, others as well but not as often.

Could you please add some URLs?

The website works properly here. I don’t need to refresh the page.

For me it works normally too

It works normally here. Maybe it’s a problem that occurred when you installed Brave. But it doesn’t looks like a browser problem

weird, almost always unsecure for me, along with other websites. I checked the version of Brave and it is up to date.

Have you tried putting “https://” before

Tried to sign up for safechats but getting Not Secured on both Brave and Chrome

This probably is because that website uses images with http:// protocols. But I’m not sure.

@Lion click “not secure” button to see why sites aren’t secure.
@Markook I think Brave always upgrades links to https://

yes, that’s the reason.

actually, not always. Just like HTTPS Everywhere, it uses a list. If the website is not on the list, the connection is not upgraded.

could be your setting or check out addons like Decentraleyes etc or purchase a VPN

I was going to say the same thing. Let’s remember that the HTTPS Everywhere component is handled by real people who have to investigate. Without emphasizing that one of the collaborators (The Tor Project) has to deal with more things (Tor Circuit, Its own Browser, fix bugs).

Other problem is that sometimes the sites do not connect the HTTPS connections with the HTTP connections (there are no redirects). Which causes browsers to detect them as two completely different sites.

As the official brave site says: “Whenever possible using the HTTPS Everywhere list, Brave automatically upgrades to HTTPS for secure, encrypted communications when an ordinary browser would use an insecure connection.”

Yes. The alternative is the stronger “HTTPS-only mode” (like Firefox), but if the site doesn’t support HTTPS, it will ask you to switch to unencrypted HTTP.
