Expected result: Just need help on moving data the right way without losing it.
Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.49.120
Additional Information: I am Dutch so exuse for not being clear in englisch
You could sync. Your Brave version is updated to the latest version so should be good to go.
Just make sure you click on sync everything when you enable sync.
Also don’t clear Brave on old device before installing and checking all data has been synced to new laptop.
If you are using Windows, check these FAQ, specifically at the end of the page. Please, note that this is not an official backup procedure. It may not work in your system. Since Brave is removing vBAT sometime in the next weeks, this procedure may not work anymore in the future.
Note: as far as I know, it may not be possible to backup the saved passwords. They are supposed to be encrypted by your OS.
BRAVE SYNC/BACKUP & RESTORE
I’m getting a new device OR I need to reinstall Brave, how do I backup my BAT?
BAT needs to be on a verified wallet if you don’t want to risk losing it. At this time, it is NOT saved when you create a Sync chain. If you have verified your “wallet” with Uphold or Gemini, then when you install Brave on your new device and connect it with your Wallet, your BAT should appear and all pending BAT will be sent in the next payout.
OK everybody. All these answers alltogether is what I needed.
So I am going to make a backup and then sync. And as I understand this you should backup regularly to be sure to be safe.
If I have still questions I will be back.
And if anybody has any usefull things, always welcome.
