Lost seed phrase, how can I reset wallet?

Description of the issue:

Are you using the (new) Brave Wallet or the (old) Crypto wallets implementation? Yes

How can this issue be reproduced? Yes

Brave Version (check About Brave): Version 1.41.100 Chromium: 103.0.5060.134 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information: My seed phrase file was corrupted by Trezor Password Manager, so I would like to update the wallet on the 1st of the month, so the Rewards that transfer to my exchange for earning interest, can be moved to a new wallet where I have a new seed phrase, for management.

I can’t easily create a new wallet as the browser no longer offers the ‘Create New Wallet’.
Unsure if I should uninstalled Brave and reinstall, as I don’t want to lose all my bookmarks, which are synced to my mobile phone.
Also hope it won’t mess up the link to my exhcnage where the rewards earn interest.


The seed phrase referenced is related to the Brave Wallet only.

Brave Rewards is tied to Brave Private Ads. Brave Browser users who opt-in to Brave Rewards will see privacy-preserving, first-party ads in certain locations as they browse.

Brave Wallet and Brave Rewards are not connected. Currently, to be able to send Brave Rewards to your Brave Wallet, you must verify with one of our custodial partners. Please note, Brave is actively working on a Backup and Restore solution for our Rewards program as well.

Unfortunately, if the Brave browser is reinstalled any BAT stored locally will be lost. This can be avoided by verifying with our partner custodians.

The Brave Sync feature can be used to backup any bookmarks and other eligible data. You can learn more here: https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021218111-How-do-I-set-up-Sync-

If your browser is uninstalled/reinstalled, Brave Wallet will be erased (including any accounts/held assets). The only way to recover this wallet is with a viable seed phrase.
