Description of the issue:
Brave browser deletes every single cookie when windows are closed by the user, even when the user wants to have a list of allowed websites.
This, in some cases, forces people to install unwanted extentions to do the job, in other cases people always keep all the cookies instead of periodically deleting them and it may represent a risk for people’s privacy and security.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Go to → brave://settings/cookies
- Activate → delete cookies and data on exit
- Below you can set some filters but this option is missing: “add websites whose cookies will not be deleted when tabs are closed”
You can set an allowed list, you can also set a list that will be deleted on exit but you can’t set a list of websites whose cookies will be kept after you close Brave’s tabs and windows.
If you activate the feature to automatically delete cookies on exit and you have a list of allowed websites, their cookies should still be there when you restart the browser, or, even better, there should be an additional option that allows users to set a list of exceptions to the automatic removal, so that the cookies of a website in the exceptions list are not removed when tabs are closed.
