When logging into my bank they look for one or more cookies to determine if you are logging in from a public PC or one that’s secured. If it cannot find the cookie or cookies its looking for it will prompt you for a code texted to your cell phone. Once you enter the code you can click a button that creates the cookie or cookies needed for verification on future visits. My problem is that even if I click on the button to create the cookies it either is not creating them or placing them in a location where the system cannot find them on the next login.
I contacted a tech support friend of mine at the bank who stated that after he installed Brave on a test PC he was able to disable the shields for the banks web site and he was able to save the cookie so that he could bypass the authentication code on subsequent visits to the site. I tried this on my PC and I continued to be prompted. I subsequently uninstalled and then reinstalled Brave and tired again and this time it worked. I then imported all of my shortcuts from Firefox and when I tried logging into the bank using my shortcut I was once again prompted to enter a code. I subsequently, removed the shortcut, cleared all of my history and tried entering the URL for the bank and attempted to save the cookie but on the next subsequent logon, I was once again prompted to enter a code sent to my cell phone.
At this point, I don’t understand why it retained a cookie on the first logon to the bank and I was not prompted for the code on subsequent logons but failed after I imported my shortcuts. Does this make sense to anyone why importing your shortcuts would cause this kind of issue? Any help would be appreciated.
