The Onion address leaks by Brave have me digging into the browser: brave://flags/#dns-over-https

That should give you setting that should be toggle-able - if your OS is compatible. Mine is not. Therefore Brave never could send DOH - encrypted DNS - behind my back as assumed default they are doing.

Which means everyone on compatible platform isn't using DNS server they might think. And it means, Brave has been functioning as Man-In-The-Middle for all your DNS lookups.

Did you install Brave for that feature - DOH? I doubt it.

The other settings in there under experimental are so many. Tons that are privacy concerns.

Thank you!!!!!!

This is quite brazen of them.

Some of it might be laziness of checking out mods to chrome source they depend on, rather than their possibly obfuscated source alterations.

No way to tell probably without compiling or downloading chromium yourself and confirming what they try to patch over : https://github.com/brave/brave-browser
and https://github.com/brave/brave-core

And now I think you are on to a money avenue they are seeking....

.... if a program is Free... then YOU are the Product
