Unlike other browsers like chrome, Brave browser blocks third-party tracker by its default. In other browsers, Advertisers like google and facebook tracks you on nearly every website via reading the cookies. Brave browser blocks third-party cookies by default, which indeed limit the amount of data that advertising networks(like Facebook and Google) can collect about you and your browsing habits.
