Description of the issue:
Brave Browser today updated to v1.17.73 and it appears to have broken my ability to use fingerprint to login to LastPass.
My confident confirmation the issue is with Brave is in Chrome (v87.0.4280.66) fingerprint login to Lastpass extension continues to work as expected, and, it’s only today (literally only after my Brave Browser was updated) that Lastpass extension fingerprint login no longer work (ie. i’ve been using Lastpass and Brave successfully for many many months).
Attempt to fix
I disabled Lastpass fingerprint, uninstalled Lastpass and Brave extension, reinstalled Lastpass Universal Installer (required for fingerprint to be accessible), reinstalled Lastpass extension in Brave re-enabled fingerprint, but nothing I do will allow fingerprint to be used to login. Lastpass continues to ask for password.
Tried changing Brave Browser setting Fingerprinting blocking from Standard to Disabled
Tried in Chrome, works as expected
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Win: Home v10.0.19042
Brave: Version 1.17.73 Chromium: 87.0.4280.67 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Hoping someone can advise a workaround and/or Brave developers can review and fix? It is a security issue to leave Lastpass extension permanently logged in, and very frustrating to have to manually enter a password each and every to login to Lastpass extension. At this stage, will have to revert to Chrome until confirmation of a fix or workaround
