I use Brave on both my laptop and on my Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G. Last night, my phone received an update from Android 12 to Android 13 as well as Samsung"s UI from 4 to 5. there have been a few glitches. Although not related to Brave, I was initially having problems accessing Samsung Pass which is a password saver for the phone. At the same time, I began having problems with Brave passwords. The issue is that when I open Brave browser, go to Settings, and then down to the General section, I see the Passwords choice. I click on it and there I see the list of sites and user names for all the sites I have saved passwords in Brave. When I click on a specific one, the screen flashes for a second and then Im back to the Settings page. There I will click on Passwords again and once again see the list. I click on a random site and user and end up back on the Settings page. If I do this several times, I get notification that Brave keeps stopping and Brave will close on me.
When I go to a site that a password had been saved on, I do get a popup and can click on it and then the password saved in Brave will auto fill the user name and password. So I know that the passwords are there. There are just times where I need to view the actual password for a site and that wont work.
On my laptop using Brave, I can get into autofill, the passwords and view all the passwords for the saved sites. However that would be a bit of a problem as I obviously dont always have my laptop with me.
What I have tried… Tried force stopping Brave in Android Apps and restarting.
Tried force stopping and deleting cache.
Tried restarting phone and then entering the Android Recovery to wipe the cache and repair apps and letting phone restart.
Tried deleting Brave from phone and removing the phone from sync chain using Brave on the laptop, reinstalled Brave from Google Play on phone, added phone to sync chain and letting all the content sync. Everything showed back up but still cant get passwords for the saved sites.
And this is recent. Before the big phone update, I know that this was working as recently as yesterday. And although not Brave related, I did finally get Samsung Pass working by deleting Samsung Wallet, force stopping in Apps, deleting cache and then data, then restarting Samsung Pass. It then restored all those saved passwords along with having me install Samsung Wallet. It finally worked after this so that part is fixed. Just not sure if its related to Brave or if the big update caused some kind of problem.
