Description of the issue:
Trying to add a new MacBook Pro to the Sync Chain. I keep my sync code in a secure note in 1Password and I did check on my old Mac and my phone to make sure that the code is correct. At first, I thought this “your code is depreciated” or whatever was just an FYI, but I click Confirm and NOTHING happens.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Try and sync. Use code.
Reproduces how often:
Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
1.42.86 macOS M1 (Apple chip) latest macOS down to the smallest patch.
Type of devices currently running on the Sync chain in question:
Old Intel Mac running latest everything
iPad Pro (10.5")
iPhone 7 Plus (OK just didn’t bother removing it yet)
Windows PC I built myself running the latest Windows 10 x64 Pro.
I’m a dev by trade so I love screenshots, so here’s a screenshot! https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtRtm-nBsm_VoL8kcSbOYsjg3wqw8Q?e=aK97Ky
I googled for a good half-hour, including reading posts from these forums.
Thanks @Muzical for reporting, we’re currently investigating this. I’ll let you know once we know more.
Hi @Muzical I am having a similar issue on a newer version of Brave on a linux install. I perused their FAQ page after a quick google search and found that there was a new sync version released that is incompatible with old sync chains. I will be attempting a new sync chain to resolve the issue but maybe this might be the same problem you are having.
I also need help, I used an old version, and I don’t have access anymore, because I formatted it, but I saved the code. I really wanted my favorites!
(Sorry my bad inglish)
God bless all!
I have been having the same trouble and I can’t seem to get it fixed I’ve tried different versions of the brave browser and nothing seems to be working.
It would seem problematic, then, that Brave doesn’t prompt the user to update the sync chain, or anything like that.
Apparently I won’t have support to recover my important favorites
Hi - I’m having the same problem. Transferring all data from an old Macbook Pro 2013 to a new Macbook Air 2022. The problem is that I can’t update Brave in the Macbook Pro hence I can transfer all my data - can I load it onto a iPhone and then to the Macbook Air ? Any other solutions to get around this problem?
Hi, I managed to solve my problem mentioned in my comment above.
As it had saved the code only. I discovered this link, and reading the comments, I came to the comment of “cynical13” who commented that it is enough to add a word at the end of the code of old versions of brave.
