Brave MASTER Password storage

Dear all,
I found in this forum how to recover the list of the passwords stored in Brave, great to see their is a way to restore, but really afraid about the fact that their is no master password to unlock it.
I really love the concept of Brave but for me it is not secure enough due of this lack of protection on sensitive information.
Am I wrong? is their any way to protect this file? without this pass it is quiet impossible to use this browser if we share the same computer with admin access even with dedicated profile.

I’m not sure I understand what you’re asking – are you wanting to password protect a file on your system in the User Data directory? Or are you asking if there is a way to set a master password to view password data in the browser itself?

Like the Firefox master password (aka primary password) to protect the locally stored passwords? I was looking for this too

@dilemma: You should both try dedicated password manager, I chose Bitwarden specifically. It runs on every OS, so you can access your passwords securely on all your devices with one account. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your proposal, definitely we can use third party software but I think if a Browser pretends to take care of the security, it should offer master password if it stores password, or do not store password if their is no option to protect the file. We are speaking about this topic, that means we are concerned about password protection, but we also have to think to people with less knowledge… I really hope they will soon implement pass protection…

A master password like for Firefox, a pass that you need to unlock your password wallet when you open Brave, in this case even if you get the file restore it on another computer you will have to unlock the wallet with a master pass.
In this case if you adopt your Browser you don’t need third party tool for your password, everything is protected and sync between all your computers.

I believe we have an issue/request out for this already. Additionally, it’s worth noting that you do need to enter your system password at least to view password content in Brave for all OS.

I agree that we have to fill system password, but if you have several admin for the system we face an issue. System password is not enough to protect sensitive data as passwords. It’s better when an application is secured by itself rather than depending on OS that can be easily compromise
