Brave crashes instantly after opening

After enabling brave sync from flags on my PC, I tried to sync it with my android, but the browser shut down and everytime I open it, it shut downs instantly.

PLEASE help me, I cannot remove it from the sync chain from my android, neither can I remove my android from the sync chain, also I don’t want to uninstall my browser, I has so many bookmarks and passwords and I don’t have a backup.

Brave is on latest version on both my PC and Android

open the command prompt and run

C:\Program Files BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe" --disable-brave-sync

Then you can go into brave flags and disable enable sync…

are you sure the command is right?

oh there’s a lonely Quotation…

“C:\Program Files BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe” --disable-brave-sync

hey man it is not recognizable it says

Reload page… corrected command

mate you see brave.exe path in my pc is “C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe”
So your command doesn’t work for my PC. well I have tried your command with --disable-brave-sync
Also i tried brave.exe destination with --disable-brave-sync and both doesn’t work

omg… The corrected command was borked as well… Below should work…

“C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe” --disable-brave-sync

I’ve tried it but it doesn’t work, thanks though

Did you use the command exactly as shown? ie. used the quotes… If you’re talking about the error you posted, that’s because you didn’t use quotes in your command which it says it cant find the command C:\Program

Nope that’s not the case, I did use the quotes, the Brave Browser opened and closed instantly.

ugh… as far as bookmarks those should be in C:\Users*’ user *\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware

so you can copy those out and back in again after reinstalling brave…

actually maybe passwords is in there too and can copied out and back in as well…

That’s a maybe and what about the ads revenue

eh… the brave rewards? from what i’ve seen on this forums is that brave rewards back up, restoration is glitchy…

Will the bookmarks and passwords be recovered by the Users>Appdata>Brave software copy thingy

oh… there’s one more thing to try… there was a problem with hardware accelleration as well…

“C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application\brave.exe” --disable-brave-sync --disable-gpu

try giving this a go…

LOL mate, before the incident happened I disabled the hardware acceleration from brave settings


like i said earlier, the bookmarks, definately, the passwords maybe…


copy to some other location
uninstall brave
install brave
close brave if open
copy the old data into appdata…
