Brave keeps crashing on launch

Description of the issue:
Since the last update from the Play store (1.38.119), Brave keeps crashing whenever I launch it. I get the message that it keeps stopping. It’s completely unusable.

How can this issue be reproduced?
Opening the app after the last update.

Expected result:
App opens and functions normally like before the update.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Mobile Device details
Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016)
OS: Android 8.1

Additional Information:
I’ve already tried deleting the cache and restarting my phone. I cannot reinstall the app nor delete the app data as that will delete my accumulated BAT, since the wallet still hasn’t been verified.

I also tried downloading the .apk of the same version (since there is no newer one yet) and reinstalling that way but it doesn’t work. It just says that the update failed.


I would disable everything in Brave Browser > Settings, that are potentially a burden - whatever you can do without, for testing.

For a new window / new tab, keep that basic / simple.

Test Private Browsing Only.

If you have a notebook or desktop computer, you can use GoodSync to back up your Android device to that “mothership”.
