All saved Passwords are gone

All of my saved passwords are no longer showing up. How can I restore them without going through each website and reentering them?

Hi @yjdebatty, Welcome to Community!
Do you know if you’re using multiple profiles? Do you have a circular icon in the top right? If so click on that icon and you can navigate between profiles - you might have been pushed into a new profile for some odd reason.

Hello AA Ron,
Thanks for getting back to me.

No, I have a single profile.

I have been working my way through all my password protected websites and repopulating the saved passwords file. Is there a way to back up the passwords file so this doesn’t happen again?

Depending on your OS, can I direct you to the login data file and you could back that up.

  • windows path: C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data
  • macOS path: ~/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/Default

Also, please go to brave://settings/clearBrowserData and check to make sure Brave is not set to clear browsing data on exit.
