Brave loses all your data if you ignore password prompt in a password-less login

Description of the issue:
Logging in without a password and ignoring a popup prompt to enter one when Brave starts up will cause Brave to forget all your cookies and passwords forever.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Login into your account without a password (via auto-login on boot for example)
  2. Start Brave, a popup will appear asking for your password
  3. Ignore the popup, it will timeout and Brave starts up without any of your data (as expected)
  4. Restart Brave

Expected result: Brave asks for your password again
Reality: Brave now overwrote all your cookies and saved passwords with nothing
