Amazon seems to know my name...prior to logging in!


I cleared Private Data using: Settings, Security, Private Data, Clear Browsing Data Now. Closed browser, Opened Browser…Open Amazon web site: Amazon greets me with “Hello ******”. Brave Shields panel is running. Like the browser, but it’s a bit creeping being greeted by Jeff Bezos every time Amazon is opened.

Might be a dumb question, but did you have all the options turned on when clearing private data? Cookies included?


The options were turned off…should they have been on?


Sorry for the late response, but you should make sure all the options are selected when clearing private browser data. If you want to prevent sites from storing cookies you can turn those off as well, but I find that sometimes websites don’t work correctly when you do that.
