I'm having 2 profiles and one additional is added on each restart (after I deleted it)

Issue: I’m having 2 profiles and one additional is added on each restart, even when I deleted it.

My setup:

  • MacOS BigSur Version 11.3.1, M1
  • Brave Version 1.35.100 Chromium: 98.0.4758.87 (Official Build) (arm64)

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Create two profile
  2. Shut down browser
  3. Restart browser
  4. Delete newly added Profile “Person 1”
  5. Shut down browser
  6. Restart browser

Expected result: “Person 1” doesn’t exist, but it does :slight_smile:

Additional Information: Please see attached images.


Where the Profiles exist on your Mac:

/Users/user_shortname/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/

You might find more info at:


There, I found:

" Person 1 profile keeps coming back after being deleted - Cannot delete the ‘Default’ user profile #4599"

Hi @289wk , thank you! Unfortunately the directory doesn’t exist on this path (please see attached image). I added this as a comment to the Github issue thread as well.

Do you know whether this is different on a M1 MacBook?

Thank you!


Thank you! I managed to solve it.
