?Unfortunately, your Brave Rewards cannot be verified because your region is not supported for Brave Rewards verification at this time

Good to know that you can still Sign In at Uphold and thereby keep track of your BAT, there.

Meanwhile, if you continue to participate in Brave Rewards - ‘paying attention’ to ads, then vBAT should accumulate in your Brave Browser installation’s now un-verified Brave Rewards account/wallet (lower-case lettering for ‘wallet’).

So, be sure to routinely back up the BraveSoftware folder . . .

Linux OS:

  • $HOME/.config/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/

Mac OS:

  • /Users/username/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/

Windows OS:

  • C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\

I recommend backup of the ‘Brave-Browser’ folder’s parent: BraveSoftware folder, for technical reasons, to also save other items, let us say, about the sub-folder.

Saving the parent folder, tends strongly to keep the Brave-Browser folder intact. And I would want that, especially in Windows OS situations.

Better chances when restoring, to drag-copy the Brave-Browser folder (or contents of interest therein) . . . that was/were saved within the backed-up BraveSoftware folder.

The security credentials of a previous OS installation, used for encrypting and decrypting the passwords of the username-and-password combinations stored by the Brave Browser > Password Manager, are NOT in the Paths mentioned.

Therefore, in order to preserve the passwords, some backup method needs to be employed, and that might be one or more of:

  • Brave Sync (PROBLEMATIC/UNCERTAIN)

  • Export passwords to .CSV file

  • Third-party password manager such as 1Password, BitWarden, KeePASS, LastPASS (examples)

  • GoodSync backup software (example)

IF a Brave Browser user is willing to hack and struggle, in order to TRY to recover passwords, then read the following steps plus additional replies, at:

Backup Software and Tips

Include date and time in the backup filename. For example:

  • 20220629-1627_BraveSoftware_fldr_bkup.zip

  • BraveSoftware_fldr_bkup_20220629-1627.zip

Windows OS users:

Create a new System Restore Point every day or week, depending upon the importance of recent work.
