Profile 1 created whenever Brave is opened

Description of the issue: I personally use Brave for classwork, and I’ve never used the profiles feature. All of a sudden, this bug keeps happening. If I close and re-open the browser, it doesn’t create the profile. Then, if I close Brave and don’t touch it for about a day or so, then re-open, I will be greeted with Profile 1.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Quit Brave
  2. Restart Brave
  3. Second profile is created by default

Actual Result: Unwanted second user profile is created.

Expected result: User profile shouldn’t be created without user intention.

Reproduces how often: After every restart

OS and Brave Version: v 1.20.108

Hello @jvvien

did you enabled sync?

I do not have sync enabled, and I did not sync my Brave profile to any of my other browsers.

let me ask @Mattches to help you

same issue of auto profile creation

and have a nice day both of you :slight_smile:

So with respect to Profile 1 specifically, there is a known Chromium issue where Profile 1 can’t be deleted. I am looking for the issue we logged for it now but am having some trouble tracking it down. I’ll reply when I have it, but would like to note that it will likely be an upstream fix.
