Persistent "Sign in with Google" alert tied to cookies?

Description of the issue:

I cannot get rid of the “Sign in with Google” alert on sites that require user/password login after restarting browser that is set to delete all cookies upon closing.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Disallow “Sign in with Google” via brave://settings/socialBlocking

  2. Enable “Clear all cookies and other site data at browser close” via brave://settings/clearBrowserData

  3. Restart browser and be greeted with the above alert. Doesn’t seem to matter which site I visit, happens on common sites like NYTimes and other MSM.

Expected result:

I expect to no longer see the “Sign in the Google” alert when I restart the browser with zero cookies.

Brave Version:

Version 1.42.97 Chromium: 104.0.5112.102 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Additional Information:

2018 Macbook Pro fully updated running Monterey.

Maybe an extension is causing this issue; Open a private window to see if the message appears again.

I just quit Brave and re-opened a private tab, and the google sign-in alert did not show up. I quite Brave again, and when I opened up a few sites in a regular browser window, the Google sign-in alert is gone as well.
Update: No, still there in regular window. Will remove extensions and see what happens.

Update 2: Removing extensions didn’t work consistently and I got tired of testing them and rebooting every five minutes. Won’t figure this out anytime soon, maybe the next update will solve it.

Change ‘Trackers and ads blocking’ to aggressive, if it is standard on brave://settings/shields.

Add CJx annonyanc list, Easlylist cooki List, Fanboyz annonyance list, Fanboy social list, Ublock Annonyane list on brave://settings/shields/filters.

It will 100 % solve your problem.

You solved it, thank you. I have not looked at custom filter lists in a long time.
Hope Brave avoids V3 and uBlock keeps working next year.
