How to reset the time saved with Brave?

My time saved counter is stucked.
How can I reset it to zero ?
Many thanks for your reply.
Sorry but it’s not possible to ad a screen copy.

Unfortunately there is no way to do this in the UI. If you’d like to reset them manually, you can do so but it does take some digging.

You’ll basically have to go into your user data folder (~/.config/BraveSoftware/BraveBrowser/Default), find the Preferences file, open it up with a text editor or JSON viewer. You can then Ctrl + F to find entries for ads_blocked and bandwidth_saved_bytes and set their values to 0.


Thank you very much for your reply.
It’s very clear.
Of course as I am lazy… I will not do it. Or maybe on a winter rainy day.
It’s a pity as it could be interesting to see how Brave is really a good browser. The counter stocks since months. It seems to be quite fake.
Please have a look to the screen copy :

EDIT : It worked.
Now I’m curious to see if the counter will continue to count and if it will stop again.
