We can change some of these features on Brave, which disables the whole Wallet, NFTs and Crypto stuff. We can also disable the VPN, as theirs is not recommended anyways.
While I want to do this because I don’t want to have a long list of items on my hamburger menu there and make my browser less complicated, I believe that this will also reduce the attack surface (and make the browser as a whole faster and consumes less resources).
You can go to: brave://flags/#native-brave-wallet
And Here’s a screenshot of all the things I would disable:
Yes, but only on the filesystem level (on desktop). Find the place where Brave stores your profiles, create a new one to see what changes. You can just copy&rename a profile directory and it will have all the settings from the original.
thanks alot for the report! I’m almost sure that this wasn’t the case when I posted this thread, but it’s definitely true rn also on my side.
I’ll keep that VPN flag out of the things I recommended above.
Edit: it seems I can’t edit my original post, so I’ll have to let it there.
