@khuram1 First off, are you still having this issue or you got it resolved?
Secondly, let me repeat and make sure I’m understanding this properly
You have 2 devices with Brave, where both instances of Brave were freshly installed and you didn’t copy/paste folders over from one to the other. (in other words, you didn’t clone your profile or whatever, right?)
After your initial issue, you went in and chose Leave Sync Chain on both of the devices.
You then went to device #1 and chose Start a new Sync Chain
Still on Device #1, you went to the Sync menu and you chose Add New Device and selected Computer as the type. When the sync code appeared, you copied it.
You then went to Device #2 and selected I have a sync code. and then put in the sync code you had listed.
I guess, was that all the steps in order, you did all that? Part of what I was looking at is if you were inputting old sync code to the one where you “deleted” prior. Other is wondering if separate or cloned browser ID. I know I just tested on multiple devices and had no issue in any time, except when I went to do it on my iPhone it originally ejected me to Settings a couple times. I had to exit the browser, reopen, and then put in the code and it then showed me the connected devices on Sync.
The sync code is your password for the sync chain. It stays the same so long as the sync chain exists. So if you had your first laptop that you created the sync chain and then you added your second laptop to an existing, providing the code your first one gave you, then it shouldn’t be having any issues.
When you select new device, that’s so it can determine which of the codes to give you. For mobile it will give you the QR code and for a computer it gives you the long phrase that you would put in. Both of them work the same way it just is different presentations.
Well gives me is usually it’s something very simple that gets missed that causes issues. But maybe yours really is some oddball situation here. And I’m sitting here trying to respond to everything awesome been wanting to get to sleep for a while. It’s a little after 2 AM here so I’m gonna have to come back to this later. For right now though I am gonna put this link below and say that maybe we can see if @Mattches has any ideas
