Reset PIN (or entirely reset browser) on iOS

Troubleshooting technical issues is much easier when both the user and support agent practice clear communication. For this reason, we have provided the template below for you to fill out with information about your issue. Please provide as much detail as possible so we can most efficiently resolve your problem.


Description of the issue:

I cannot reset Brave. I am locked out of using the Browser because I forgot the PIN I set for it a time ago. I cannot figure out how to reset the browser or the PIN.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Install Brave long ago and set a pin you will inevitably forget.
  2. Become interested in using Brave again.
  3. Try to use Brave but not be able to get past pin.
  4. Delete App and App data from iOS settings.
  5. Restart iPhone.
  6. Become frustrated because after Brave app reinstall forgotten PIN lockout persists with no options to reset.

Expected result:

Brave should be reset to default settings.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

1.24

Mobile Device details

iOS 14.4.2

Additional Information:

I’m also having this exact problem, would love to know if there’s a solution to this as I currently cannot use Brave on my iOS device

Same here. Utterly frustrating. I can no longer unlock with fingerprint, and cannot remember the passcode. Can someone at Brave provide a solution please?
