Turned on my computer today and Brave doesn’t have a single password saved. Major pain. What happened? All my bookmarks are there and I don’t have any profiles to switch between. I’m a fairly advanced user so if there’s something I can do under the hood to get the passwords back let me know.
Update: I notice that when I open Brave settings my profile is called “Profile 1”. I don’t recall ever seeing that before. I also notice that in the …\User Data\Default folder there is a file called “Login Data” that appears to contain logins (I can see web sites that I log into) so the data might still be there.
How do I get “profile 1” to go back to “Default”? I’m not seeing any way to switch, and there doesn’t appear to be any other profiles. Can I simply rename “Profile 1” to “Default” and get everything back? Or maybe rename the “Default” directory to “Profile 1”?
Thanks for the response. I did not delete cookies, although it appears that they have been deleted since I’m getting cookie notices on sites that I’ve already accepted cookies on.
Before I do the bookmark thing, I wanted to ask how your bookmark steps will help with the issue of Brave not reading the Login Data password file? I’m not having any issues with bookmarks, but I don’t know the inner workings of Brave and if bookmarks and passwords are related.
