Does Brave’s built-in password manager use encryption?

Yes. When using Brave’s built-in password manager, credentials will be encrypted before being stored.

On macOS, Chromium Safe Storage is utilized.

On Windows, CryptProtectData and CryptUnprotectData are leveraged.

Lastly, on Linux, either GNOME Keyring or KWallet will be used.
