Stuck looking for device (Brave sync)

Description of the issue:
I’ve followed the very simple instructions for setting up Brave sync from Computer 1 to Computer 2 (a laptop and a desktop). I typed the whole chain code from computer 1 into the correct space in computer 2, hit Confirm Sync Code, and now nothing is happening. Computer 1 is just endlessly spinning with “Looking for device” while Computer 2 is just doing nothing, no matter how many times I click “Confirm Sync Code”. I have verified that I copied the code correctly. This has been stuck like this for 10 minutes.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10. Latest version of Brave (downloaded in the last week).

Additional Information:

Hello! Maybe try to reinstall Brave browser on both computers and see if that fixes the problem.

I’m having the exact same issue. Looking for device spins endlessly.

Windows 10.
Brave Version 0.69.135 Chromium: 77.0.3865.120 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I have this problem too. I created a sync chain with a PC and two Androids. Cannot add my laptop running Version 0.70.123 Chromium: 78.0.3904.97 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Does anyone know what mechanism is used to link these systems? Presumably a Brave server somewhere?

Better question: does ANYONE from the Brave development team read this?

Hello all, very sorry for the inconvenience here, I believe you are encountering this bug: which we are actively working on. Hopefully we’ll have a new version of this you can try out soon.
