I just received a new M2 MacBook Air, running macOS 13.0.1. I used Migration Assistant to migrate data, but not applications from my old 2017 era MacBook Pro running macOS 12.6.1. As part of standing up the new MBA, I installed Brave fresh from download. When I started up Brave on the new machine, it came up with all my previous tabs and tab groups, but sync is not working. I get this warning:
Brave could not access your operating system’s safe storage. This is what’s used to secure data such as passwords and cookies; it’s also required for Brave Sync to connect your browser profile between devices. This means Brave Sync is not running. To resolve this issue, please see the Brave Sync troubleshooting guide.
I have a sync chain set up between all my other devices, which works fine.
I went through the article referenced above, and also tried the steps in this previous discussion. Nothing I do seems to be able to get sync working. I’m at a loss to know how to get sync working on this new machine.
I get the warning message every time I start Brave.
Brave version: 1.46.140
I have sync working fine on my 2018 era Mac Mini (running 12.6.1) and on various mobile devices, all running up-to-date iOS versions, and up-to-date Brave versions.
What else can I try to get sync working on this new machine? I wonder if the problems are related to macOS 13, Apple Silicon, or whatever magic Migration Assistant performed. TIA!
