View Site Information and Permissions in the Brave on the Computer

Do you want to view security info and customize site-specific settings in the Brave browser? Learn how to check site security and customize site preferences.

The Brave browser allows viewing the site’s security information in the form of a security certificate issued by an organization with a valid expiry date.

Along with site security, we can customize the site-specific settings like access to computer cameras, notifications, microphones, location, etc., and control according to our needs.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to view the website security information and configure the site settings in Brave on a computer.

You can also view the site permissions without changing them. Whatever changes you have made to the permissions will be reflected once you reload the page.

Bottom Line

The website security information is important to know the authenticity of the website where you are making any transaction.

Apart from the site settings let you configure the individual services that you allow or deny of the sites that can misuse the granted permissions.

Similarly, you can configure the browser-wide security and privacy settings in Brave on the computer.
