Hello @stephenboston, thank you for reaching us out. By any chance did you clear your cookies and cache recently? Maybe logins and password were deleted accidentally selecting passwords and other sign in data or the option autofill form data while deleting browsing data.
Please check under the password manager to see if your logins/passwords are still there: brave://settings/autofill and the options Offer to save passwords and Auto Sign-in are enabled. Hope this helps. Regards.
Leaving everything else aside, you’re using an old version of Brave and should get it up to the latest. The most recent version of Brave for Desktop is 1.47.171. Any reason why you’re not keeping the browser updated?
That’s what you’re having to watch and tell us. Nobody here is a mind reader or able to see into the past. We can only help based on what information you provide. Does it log you out as soon as you leave the site? Does it do it when you close the window? What exactly is happening when you’re saying issue with login happens?
I have never see this happen in Brave. Cookies eventually expire and sites will occasionally make you log in again. Brave can remember the passwords for you but it still requires you to click and choose login and to then log in. Never once has it just “automatically logged in” when I visit a page that didn’t just keep me logged in from a remaining cookie.
In other words, it’s only kept people logged into sites. It didn’t automatically login the user.
Doesn’t sound like it, or you’d get a notification about it.
Btw, back onto this part, are you saying nothing is listed if you go to settings → autofill → password manager (or direct link is brave://settings/passwords)? Or are you just referring to the idea of how it isn’t just automatically signing you into websites without your input?
You’re coming across as aggressive. You sound defensive
To be clear : I am not questioning the stability or safety of the browser. Not at all.
I have been using Brave for many years, since its first release, and have seen this happen occasionally. I’m wondering if the Brave Community – which shows that this has happened to other people often enough to make me wonder if there is any accepted explanation.
As for mind reading? I suggest you’re doing too much of that.
I answered questions and pointed out difficulty of being able to assist on the little info you gave.
For example, you didn’t mention if you had just added anything to your device or even done something like clear cookies when this happened. Whether you’re using extensions. All sorts of information missing. So when you’re asking what conditions can make your situation happen, it’s an open ended question that has no reasonable answer with the limited info you provided.
Nothing I said had anything to do with that. I asked for more information to try to get a better understanding of what’s going on and to try to assist. I also then tried to address phrasing to make sure I can understand what you’re saying correctly.
Helps if you link to any references. Did they ever get a solution or figure out what caused the problem for those cases you’re saying that have existed?
i’m having the exact same probleme all my login info dissapeared and i can’t find it anymore. i tried switching profil, changing profil path, but i lost every password i had in the password manager…
i’m on the last version of brave and been using it for 4 good years now…
Hope i can get them back and we can find a fix.
Hello again @stephenboston, please try checking if the option clear data on exit is not enabled under brave://history/ > clear browsing data > on exit If so, disable it and let us know if that resolves the issue. Regards.
If it’s okay I’d like to jump straight into the main issue here. @stephenboston, can you please confirm that if you go to Settings —> Autofill --> Passwords, all of this data is gone? Or are you simply saying that you are not signed into certain sites anymore, and have to re-enter your credentials?
Additionally, I would highly recommend updating your browser to the latest build (v1.47.171 at the time of writing this).
Don’t take it so serious. Maybe you got it too personal, I understand that, but what @Saoiray pointed out are legitim points and questions.
You are right that passwords have been disappearing recently. I have seen it myself. And there are other reports in this community.
But it is also a fact that you are using a release that is almost 1 year old. This was the very first point @Saoiray mentioned. You cannot expect stability when you do not care about your own software.
So, let’s stop the fight. We are all together in this. And we all expect things to get better.
They look like questions to me. I don’t see where he ever insulted you or spoke down to you either.
Saoiray has helped a lot of people. Sometimes he doesn’t phrase things as well as he should, but always been helpful. Nothing said should have gotten the response it did and I feel bad for him for the attitude that was given.
I find this very interesting as I know that he helped solve another issue for you in the past.
How you read text says a lot about yourself. If you read everything in a calm and friendly way, that’s how it comes across. You, the reader, are the one who determines the tone. Not sure what you’re dealing with in life, but hopefully you can find some peace and happiness soon.
Glad to hear you responded to say no issue on other browsers and you’re considering this a fluke.
Also should note that Saoiray is active on Reddit and other places for support as well.
