It is weird. So it just doesn’t do anything when you try to scan the QR or does any error code show up ?

@black_cat1 your description doesn’t let us know what your issue is. Such as if you’re able to go through all the steps but then getting an error, if it’s just not opening to scan, or what? This makes it a bit difficult to offer assistance. That said, I’d suggest you check the links below as most likely you’ll have some answers in them.

I use the scan QR code function. Basically, when I point the camera to scan the QR, it just does not accept the QR and also did not threw any error.

Btw, I used the sync code generated from my old phone and it added successfully :slight_smile:

But I did not see my old tabs from old Brave appeared in new Brave, is that normal?
