Websites violate your privacy by requesting access to your location, camera, microphone, and hassle you by requesting you allow notifications. The vast majority of these are abuses of the functionality, not ‘legit’ requests. So the default should be to block these requests to protect Brave users’ privacy.
Firefox has this functionality. I have moved from Firefox so I miss it, or rather I don’t like suddenly being inundated with annoying requests from websites.
The feature is check boxes for the following:
- Block new requests asking to access your location
- Block new requests asking to allow notifications
- Block new requests asking to access your microphone
- Block new requests asking to access your camera
All of these have a white list should you really want to grant these permissions to specific sites.
