Cloudflare CAPTCHAs not loading in Brave browser

I have been having an issue loading Cloudflare CAPTCHAs or websites that use Cloudflare protection in general for several weeks.

In most cases, I cannot load these websites when using the Brave browser with Cloudflare WARP enabled. Brave has been updated regularly since then, and there was a thread a few months ago that suggested the issue was due to fingerprinting, which was fixed, but this is not the case for me. The websites also do not load when I disable all protection in Brave, so I suspect that Cloudflare WARP may be the issue, or something else.

Here is an example, of what happens if I visit a page that is protected by Cloudflare:

It loads infinitely long and after a few seconds, a new captcha gets instantly solved(?) and then it loads again.


  • Brave Browser: 1.61.101
  • Cloudflare WARP: 2023.11.6.0
  • Windows 11 Pro

Have you tried Incognito mode? I’m not on Windows, but it loads on my Mac with Brave 1.61.101 and WARP 2023.12.2.0 (20231201.19).

It is working in Incognito mode, but that is not a solution I want to use every time I’m using a website that is protected.

If it loads in incognito mode you have a plugin or configuration setting in the default browser config which is interfering…

All my browser plugins are disabled on the page I used to test.

Have you tried turning it off and back on again?


Have you tested with “Shields Down” on those sites?

I didn’t think of that until after I tested, but my test was with Shields Up (Red lion icon).
