Disabling Kwallet for brave


Description of the issue:

I’d like to disable Kwallet for brave so that it does not pop up kwallet related pw demand window when I launch brave. I read I need to append “–password-store=basic” to the launcher but I’m not sure where to put it. I’m using KDE plasma desktop environment and launch brave in the standard KDE launcher. Should I just add --password-store=basic at the end of the command in the launcher?

Another related question, if I do not use kwallet with brave browser, would my passwords be stored in plain text on my computer, or it’s encrypted by the BAT wallet seed or some sort?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

You can test Brave by giving this command in konsole like this:
raija@kone3:~> brave-browser --password-store=basic

Or you can can edit command in brave launcher like this:
/usr/bin/brave-browser-stable %U --password-store=basic

If you don’t want to use Kwallet at all you can disable it in KDE System setteing.

To disable the KDE wallet:

  1. (1) go to the KDE menu.
  2. (2) Type wallet, this will show KWalletManager .
  3. (3) Goto settings.
  4. (4) Uncheck "kwallet system active" .

This will disable the kwallet subsystem.

Hi, could you give instructions how to permanently set
–password-store=basic

The screenshot you posted seems to be in Finnish, and I can’t figure out what window you are showing, and how you opened it. In any case, my goal is to set that parameter permanently.

Hi,

Sorry, I do not have English system but let try…

Open the brave icon with the second mouse button and select properties. And then the applications. The menu in question should now appear.
