Description of the issue:
This is somewhat similar to this issue.
I had to wipe my computer and reinstall my MacOS. I backed up the
~/Library/Application\ Support/BraveSoftware folder, then after reinstalling MacOS and Brave, I replaced the newly created
BraveSoftware folder with my backup. Everything seems to work, except for Brave Sync, for which I’m getting the “Brave could not access your operating system’s safe storage” message. I followed the troubleshooting guide, but my keychain entry seems to already have Brave listed under Access Control. I removed the app from Access Control and re-added it, but that didn’t help.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Set up Brave Sync
- Create a backup of
- Uninstall Brave and make sure to delete
- Install Brave again
- Replace new
~/Library/Application\ Support/BraveSoftwarefolder with backup
- Check if Brave Sync is working
Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Version 1.45.123 Chromium: 107.0.5304.110 (Official Build) (x86_64)
Type of devices currently running on the Sync chain in question:
MacBook Pro 13-inch 2020, running MacOS Ventura. 13.0.1 (22A400)
