Why does Brave keeps running the BraveUpdate process in the background even when closed?

Windows 10.

Brave update process runs in the background even when Brave is closed.



It checks for updates to the brave browser you can turn it off in services
Start menu - search for services look for
Brave update service (brave)
Brave update service (bravem)
To disable
Right click on it go to properties
Under general tab
Stop the service if already running
Select disable from the dropdown menu beside startup type
hit apply then ok

You can also disable the Continue running background apps when Brave is closed option in Settings.

it allows websites to deliver notifications even when the browser is closed.
