Thank you very much for the detailed response.
Security is one thing, and convenience and ease of use another.
We use passwords even for the most sensitive data in our banking accounts etc. They can be secure as possible.
At any rate, we use passwords on our computers so if someone cracks it can access my Brave browser and get the 25 word string very easy.
Thus, I do not think this adds any layer of security… it may even be more insecure when more than one people are using a computer.
With Crome you use the profile with password. With Brave once anyone opens the computer they have access to everything in my browser… even someone with limited computer skills can open everything.
Plus, I cannot use any other computer (friend, work, public) to browse as it is going to leave my profile there, or the whole process with the words and then deleting etc is very confusing…
At work you will have to delete the profile and put the 25 words any time you use it as most work computers are not secured.
A hacker can crack my computer password and then access Brave easily. With Chrome eg they have to crack my computer account and then also my browser username and password…
And usually the pass we use for Windows may be something simple and then on the browser more complicated. Now you only need the simple pass to have access to everything…
Anyway, at least for me and others I talked to this is a very strange and inconvenient solution… it is a shame because it is a very fast and nice browser…
There should be an option to either use pass or this 25word thing.
The issue with the tabs and sound is not present on Chrome, Edge, Firefox. I only found this in Brave.
