Thanks for reporting @Mtriebler.
Can you tell me from where you see there’s still some data that not deleted? Tried on my end and it seems work properly.

Also, you may want to update your Brave. v1.4.0 is released a few days ago. :grin:

Hi, heres the resilt in Screenshot 1 (before closing Brave) and Screenshot 2 after New start.!


Thanks for the screenshot, @Mtriebler.

When you clear browser data, did you choose “All time” for the time range?

When you clear data make sure you select data from all time. Default setting is for last one hour. so if you dont change it will only delete data from one hour and retain older data.


I already understood. But that’s not my problem.

I expected Brave browser to delete private data (as I selected, for example cookies and cache) automatically when I quit the Browser… Doesn’t it ???


Ah, got it! :ok_hand: That settings is to clear selected browser data manually.

“Clear browser data on exit” like the one on desktop version is not available for Android yet. So you need to do it manually.
