Autofill seems like a gate to security breach

If a person knows my Windows 10 PIN number can easily find all my passwords saved in Brave! That’s a major security/privacy issue. Why do we even want to display the password to users. If I forget my password, that is my bad luck, I have to reset my password on related website rather than clicking on show password → entering Windows 10 password and bang having my password visible!

Yes this is what I’m worrying about too… The browser itself is good but I’m curios that where your password are stored. On the cloud? Only on your device?

I think there is lots of room for improvement here with respect to what you’re talking about. That said, for every person saying

If I forget my password, that is my bad luck

there is another saying

the browser should allow me to view my passwords in case I forget

This is the way just about every other browser password manager works. If you’re worried about saving your passwords in-browser, I would recommend a password manager instead to keep you passwords safe. I would also recommend enabling 2FA for any sites that contain important or sensitive information.

I see your point and yes, I agree users should also be able to see their passwords if want to.

My disappointment came when I was excited to see a browser is managing the tracking and kinda gives me my own privacy but then there is a way to expose passwords. I don’t know may be I am just paranoid!

I think there could be an option where you can chose to have your passwords displayed or not.

Just my 2 cents :slightly_smiling_face:
