Can't sync brave on mac with my iphone

I’m trying to sync brave between my mac and iphone. But there is no option on scan a code. Steps to reproduce:

Step1: I go to “add a new device” on under settings/sync on my mac and select the option for “phone/tablet”. This generates a QR code. The instructions on the QR Code popup reads:

“On your mobile device, navigate to Brave Sync in the Settings panel and click the button “Scan Sync Code”. Use your camera to scan the QR Code below.”

Step 2: I go to my iphone brave settings/sync, but there is no option to scan sync code. The only option is to “add a device”, which only allows me to select a type of device to create a code.

Brave iMac Version: Version 1.44.105 Chromium: 106.0.5249.91 (Official Build)
Brave iOS version: 1.43 (
MacOS version: 10.14.6
iPhone version: XR

See if the above helps in any way

I’ve been saying this for a while. No option to scan. No option to type in a code. Bump.

@apachewolf I’m going to respond back to your prior post. I lose track of things if people don’t tag me on things. So I know we were trying to get answers and I tagged Michal, but then he never responded. I’ll see about trying to get Mattches or others over. But wanting to try to keep topics separate. (I’m still wondering if iPhone 6 somehow has something to do with it)

When trying to sync my Mac with my iPad, the iPad dose not show the option to “Scan Sync Code”.

@tljbrv are you still having issues or did you get it resolved?

Just to be clear, when you see add a device it means it is already in a sync chain. Otherwise it would show you option to either Start sync chain or I have a sync code (or something like that)

So what you’ll need to do is remove one of the devices from the sync chain. If on iPhone, then when you go to Sync you should see a device name (This Device) listed. You can click that and then Remove Device or you can instead hit the little gear icon on the top right which will open Sync Internals. If you look through Sync Internals, you’ll see a button you can push that says Disable Sync (Clear Data). You will click that. Either one should remove the iPhone from a sync chain.

Now when you exit everything and go back to Sync, you should see the options I mentioned earlier, to either start a chain or to scan. DO NOT hit Start Sync Chain.

@JaySan14 really best to try to create your own topic. When we get multiple people on one topic, it can be a bit confusing on information given/shared. That said, can you double check what I’m saying here as well. I believe both you and the OP may be having the same issue.
