Description of the issue: How can this issue be reproduced?
I enter a username and password and
The dialog box pops up asking me whether to save it
I save it but the password autofill section under settings remains empty.
**Expected result: Credentials would be saved to password autofill section
**Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.35.100 Chromium: 98.0.4758.87
**Additional Information: I’m not sure if this is related, but sessions for tabs seem to end much more quickly than then they used to. I’m getting logged out of sites all the time. I’m using MacOS 10.14.6.
This sounds like a keychain access issue. Can you (on your macOS system) open the spotlight search (Cmd + Space bar), type in Keychain access and hit enter. Then select Login on the left-hand side of the window, then check to see if Brave Safe Storage is listed here?
I ran a test between my laptop and my desktop, both macs. I’m running Big Sur v11.3 on my laptop and Mojave 10.14.6 on my desktop. The password feature works on my laptop, but still not on my desktop. Both are using the same version of brave 1.37.113. So maybe it’s an incompatibility with the Mojave OS that causing the issue. Any chance this information might help in finding a fix?
Sorry for the late reply. It could be related to the OS yeah — I’m assuming the Brave safe storage is present on your Desktop as well? Can you try disabling your extension (on desktop) anyway and testing to see if this makes any difference?
So, I had to restart my computer and when it had rebooted I noticed that brave autofilled a password. I checked my passwords and all of my passwords are back. All of them, from all time. I also deleted one and logged into the site and it also saved to autofill.
I did not remove any extensions, so that wasn’t the problem.
Not sure why rebooting my computer would have fixed the issue, but hope you find this info useful.
