Description of the issue: This is just a feedback-cum-feature request.
Brave clears data on sync-chain if one of the devices in sync-chain has
Clear browsing data On exit enabled. This causes passwords being removed from all devices.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
- Add fews devices on Sync-chain
- Enable Clear data on exit in one of the Windows browser
- Notice passwords are cleared from every browser
Reproduces how often:
Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
1.46.144 Chromium: 108.0.5359.128 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Type of devices currently running on the Sync chain in question:
Windows and Android
I think it would be better if passwords remain in other devices where data is not cleared on exit. Passwords and other data get removed only on the device where
Clear Data On Exit is enabled and passwords/bookmarks gets loaded when it restarts. @Mattches
