See the entire thread and replies from 289wk and mattches Brave attempts to get access to webcam even I choose not to allow sites to use my camera!. The user also reported it happened to him on chrome. Most of the time when you get such a pop-up, the browser is just trying to check if your device has a camera or not. It is not trying to connect/access/use the camera.

ohh yeah make sense, Thank you very much, I thought it was virus or something
