**Brave Version( check About Brave): [
Version 1.46.140 Chromium: 108.0.5359.99 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:

I am not part of an organization and do not have my Brave account synced. The only reason I noticed this is that I am unable to access extension details to allow running extensions on incognito windows.

At one point I had modified my terminal to only open brave in incognito mode. The text entered into terminal was as follows:

defaults write com.brave.Browser IncognitoModeAvailability -integer 2

I have since deleted brave and removed all of the files from my library. When I reinstalled I am still seeing the same issue.

Here is a screenshot of the policies I have on brave://policy.

And a screenshot of what I see when I enter the Extensions section:

How do I remove the managed by organization from my personal instance of Brave?

I figured out the cause. In this case I needed to also delete the plist files and delete policies from the terminal using the following:

defaults delete com.brave.Browser IncognitoModeAvailability

Here is a reference link for the similar process for Chrome:
