Randomly lost login sessions for some websites

Description of the issue:
Brave Browser lost login sessions, solved if quit and re-open.
but will happen again randomly with no reason.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
noted that it happens randomly, cannot reproduce every time.
for example,

!! Suddenly the issue happened !!

  • When I go to mail.protonmail.com, my login session is lost, it brings me to log in page.
  • Logged in and after checking the email I just close the ProtonMail tab.
  • Go to ProtonMail again and found that my login session has gone, I have to login again as a loop
  • I decided not to login in last time
  • I try differently, I quit the browser with CMD+Q and reopen the Brave browser
  • I go to ProtonMail and I redirected to my inbox (my login session back to exist even though previously I lost my login session and redirect to login page)

That’s pretty weird, it happens many times for the last 5-6 days since I started using Brave Browser.

I also experienced this issue with some Crypto Defi websites like app.youves.com with the same issue experience, I have to connect my wallet again often.

Noted: not happened with every website. (e.g. Facebook and Twitter still logged-in)

Expected result:
my login session should still exist, as I compared with Safari and Firefox they working well.

Reproduces how often:
Every day for the last 5-6 days since I started using Brave

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
macOS Big Sur - 11.5.2
Brave - 1.29.77

Additional Information:
Noted that I try with Brave beta and got the same issue randomly.


Developers are aware of this weird issue. As a temporary solution until a certain fix is found - disable brave://flags/#brave-ephemeral-storage.
