Brave randomly closes all tabs in Private browsing

Description of the issue:
Brave randomly closes all Private tabs on my phone. Normal tabs are preserved but probably simply reloaded from history.

How does this issue occur?
Happens at random with no real pattern. Time of private close wipe within the day varies, time between two wipe events varies wildly, seemingly independent of phone usage.

Expected result:
Private tabs should remain open unless the app is explicitly closed.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave 1.51.110, Chromium 113.0.5672.77

Mobile Device details
Huawei Mate 10 Lite, Android 8.0.0

Additional Information:
I use private tabs because I don’t want to have to routinely clear my history, but it is annoying to have to routinely re-log in my websites instead. Browsing normal tabs but without saving further/any history would also work as well but there is seemingly no option to do that, also if this is caused by Brave using too much RAM and the phone randomly soft-closing the app (it always shows as still open in the square button/apps view) this would likely not help as the pages wouldn’t be saved anyway. Alternative/indirect solutions are also welcome.

That is weird. I’m curious to see if the same happens on Brave beta / Brave Nightly.

Are Beta and Nightly one and the same? The landing page says that “the releases (…) may contain bugs that can result in data loss”, that doesn’t sound too promising for this issue in particular :slight_smile:

Buddy, we are wanting to check if the issue is with some anti-virus or some system settings or just with Brave stable release. If Nightly or beta works then something wrong with Brave stable release on your device.
