Request for auto-connection of hardware-observe for Brave


I’d like to request hardware-observe auto-connection for the Brave browser.

This is a follow-up to our request for the auto-connection of u2f-devices.

As it turns out, without the hardware-observe connection, devices plugged in before the snap is started don’t work (see the above thread for more information).

This auto-connection was already granted to Firefox, where it solves the same issue.


Given the info you’ve provided in that other thread (including that FF has it) +1 from me.

+1 from me too - this has been a long-standing bug in both Brave and Chromium (cc @nteodosio - you should also add this plug from chromium and request auto-connect too by the sounds of things)

+1 from me as well and it is required to solve the issue.

+3 votes for, 0 votes against, granting auto-connect of hardware-observe to brave. This is now live.
