Sign in automatically to Youtube, Gmail, and other accounts; while the "cookies" item is being turned on and check!


Since three days ago, start to use Brave on PC to check it to see If I can replace it with Google Chrome or not. It’s similar to Chrome and it’s better and seems more secure than it and when I launch it, it brings very faster than Google Chrome. But there’s the thing I don’t like in Brave. When I close it or use Clean Master extension to clean EVERYTHING and when back to Brave, some websites like Youtube or Gmail need to sign in again, while Chrome doesn’t behave like this and those websites have already signed in and I don’t have to fill username and password fields to enter to my accounts.

In both browsers, I turn on (checked) all items under the “Clear browsing data” pop-up window) including “cookies and other site data” item to get more security.
I guess this won’t happen in Google Chrome because it uses its own built-in account feature and signs in automatically, but Brave doesn’t have it, so I have to sign in manually to access those websites.

Am I right about this? and how to fix this and avoid entering data for the fields? Should I uncheck the “cookies” item in Brave?

Why Brave doesn’t have its own accounts like Google Chrome and Firefox?
Currently, this thing stops me to switch to Brave from Chrome permanently!

The Brave on PC is updated to the last version on Windows 10 x64

There’s nothing to “fix”. If you ask Brave to clean everything, it cleans everything.
Chrome doesn’t clean everything just because Google wants you to go back to its YouTube Gmail etc.

I don’t trust much of huge companies like Google and their products and how they behave with users and control their data for their benefits, but do you mean the "cookies and other site data ” item in Chrome’s settings is a fake and useless thing and doesn’t clean cookies even if it’s on?
…And seems I should uncheck ‘‘cookies and other site data’’ in the Brave settings and also the Clean Master extension.

I haven’t used Chrome in a couple of years so I’m not sure what it does now, but keep in mind that, being a closed-source product by Google, it can do whatever they want with your data. More specifically, “cookies and other site data” can also be saved in other formats, or even sent to their servers on the fly for permanent storage (which is not uncommon).
Nobody will ever have a scientific, not to say legal, proof that your data are actually deleted.
