Sync Passwords Across Multiple Devices

#1

I came across a few posts about this already, but they are now closed and no definite timeline was given.

When will Brave allow us to Sync passwords across multiple devices? Right now, I can only sync Bookmarks. Will this come about a couple of months or much further down?

I was going to move from Opera to Brave, but I am still using Opera because it syncs my passwords across my work laptop and home desktop.

The basic concept behind sync here in brave is awesome but its need more implementation syncing just bookmarks is kindda just not how it should work and i am also waiting for passwords to get synced across devices it helps a lot ! Was gonna raise this issue but am happy that you already have raised it!

Yes, yes and yes! I could honestly get by without the bookmark syncing (even thought I’ve got thousands on desktop), but the lack of password syncing is really hurting my mobile experience.

I’m not a fan of 3rd party extensions that do that - I was perfectly happy with the way Chrome handled it for years, before moving to Brave. Now if I don’t remember my password I have to either boot Chrome or go to passwords.google.com and manually retype everything from there.

This is the one singular reason I cannot migrate to Brave from Chrome.

Set it all up today, tempted to go back to using LastPass but I just want simplicity and Google Passwords supplies that great simplicity, if we could Sync passwords it’d be great.

It would be a nice feature to have BUT unless Brave can up the security of the standard browser baked in password managers, please do not release such a feature!
Please don’t misunderstand me @dem_crumblies, @navtey, @MaxiM_PL, and @Sam86 I’d love to see Brave create something closer to LastPass but as it stands there are great standalone password managers and the Brave team should, therefore, focus on other more pressing feature than trying to catch up to those, which isn’t an easy undertaking.

Good Morning!

I really enjoyed the features of Brave. However, I have the same problem of password synchronization on the devices. I really want to make the move to Brave. But in the meantime, I need to stay with Google Chrome because I need to give more access to other devices for my project.

@MONKiB You’re joking right?

The LastPass integration with Android and Chrome is a god damn joke. I was trying to buy tickets to a band yesterday and EVERY text entry box it popped up saying ‘thumb print to auto fill’…
So there are not any good solutions.

Google Password is the only one that has worked seamlessly for me, it is basic user/pass with no advance options but this is fine for 99.9999% of websites I use… Very few use 2-3 passwords.

If they do it properly I don’t see much of a security issue. I’m already letting the application store the passwords, it already has it in memory somewhere … it is not rocket science to add some synchronization. IF you already trust it so save device to device them transferring that data securely is child’s play. Data doesn’t get snatched mid stream, it’s nearly always stolen while saved.

And I’m not alone, this is not the 90s, we don’thave 1 device each.

For me security comes first and usability second. A certain amount of separation allows for added security. Now the basic password managers, integrated into browsers, are very usable but in terms of security they are lack luster.

On macOS and iOS I’ve had a very good experience with using LastPass. I’m sorry to hear that the experience you have with it on Android is not very good. I have coworkers who use it on Android and they haven’t been complaining. Maybe it depends on the Android variant and the manufacturers OS customizations.

Sorry but the website annoyance is true on any android version.

I have on me a Samsung S9, OnePlus 5T and Pixel 3.

I use Pixel 3 daily.

All have the LastPass shoddy behavior.

There are NO seemless password managers that can interact with chrome/braze/chromium etc on android

Braze HAVE to implement true sync

The ‘majority’ simply wont move until they do so.

You can scream security, you can scream ‘but you can do this and get annoyed’ or ’ your can bla bla bla’ all you like.

But until a seamless device to device sync is implemented… don’t expect Brave to be a main browser for most people.

Phone, Laptop. PC, Tablet, Kindle, Work PC etc etc etc… people want them all sync’d. Any company that doesn’t realize that is doomed.

Please add logins to Sync asap. It’s a huge loss of functionality for those of us coming from Firefox, in what’s otherwise a pretty great browser.
