Description of the issue:
For many web pages I just enter my login data once and the page does not ask me again (e.g. gmail, github, stackoverflow etc.). If I open one of the named web pages normally, I’m logged in automatically. I guess they are using cookies or internal storage.
However, Brave forgets every 2 to 4 weeks the google accounts and logins for many web sites like github, stackoverflow etc and I have to login everywhere again. This is very annoying and time consuming.
How can this issue be reproduced?
I did not find a clear way to reproduce the issue. Today it happens after I did a restart, successful ubuntu login. Then I accidentally failed to enter the correct password for Ubuntu “Password for Key” management (dark popup) while starting brave. However, after a computer restart and entering all passwords correct, Brave still remembers non of my Web pages logins.
UPDATE * THERE IS A WAY TO REPRODUCE THE ISSUE*
- Restart Ubuntu
- Skip unlock keyring popup several times
- start Brave (all logins are forgotten)
- restart Ubuntu again
- Unlock keyring correctly
- Start Brave. Brave still has forgotten all google accounts and web page logins
Google accounts and web pages logins should not be forgotten
Brave Version( check
Version 1.31.87 Chromium: 95.0.4638.54 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I’m running brave on Ubuntu 21.04
There is a similar thread Brave keeps forgetting my google accounts
The solution mention there “delete the google cookies” does not solve the issue for me.
