Google Webview

OMG Brave leaks urls via DNS queries..... just a short reminder: that Google's Chrome Webview embed you see in loads of apps? That's phoning home to Google with usage data including urls. Most of those apps will not know they have to opt-out of that snooping, and they certainly didn't get their users permission for Google to opt them in by default on their behalf.
