Hi @i.rajeshh - I can answer your question on user perspective.
For Question 1:
- I know finding a MAC address is not legit, and it can’t be done via the ISP, but as far as I read, there is a possibility to act chrome as a Browser & also a Spy software to know all the details of the machine and send it to google.
There’s no way Brave Browser nor any mainstream browser can get your MAC Address. However, spy software can, but they don’t send it to Google, spyware are created for malicious purposes after all. It gets sent somewhere else.
If you get infected by spyware. Get an antivirus to remove it to your computer.
- Came to know that Brave also built on Chrome browser, will brave do the same data collection stuff to google?
No, Brave Browser is based on Chromium, which is an open source application. Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge (the new one) is also based on it.
Each browser based on Chromium don’t send data to Google but to their own servers (Brave Browser = Brave, Microsoft Edge = Microsoft, Google Chrome = Google)
For Question 2;
You’re reading on the wrong place. Google doesn’t ban based on your MAC Address. Google bans your registered Google account.
Blocking scripts however via Brave Browser could help against tracking, but it’s already overkill. Natively, Brave Browser blocks ads and trackers by default.
Windows (not sure about other OSes) in the first place, have randomized MAC Address functionality. So it’s not really a sure way to track someone.
