Where to find the vault data in brave browser for getting access to lost metamask wallets?

Description of the issue: I had a metamask wallet in my brave browser but my laptop got formatted completely. I have been able to recover the brave browser appdate back and remember my metamask password as well. How do I follow the steps for brave browser as mentioned here in the bravebrowser (https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018766351-How-to-use-the-Vault-Decryptor-with-the-MetaMask-Vault-Data)

**Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary) : Laptop formatted, need access to old metamask wallet (i remember my password)

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result: To be able to get vault data from brave files

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Version 1.32.106 Chromium: 96.0.4664.45 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

Were you using MetaMask or Brave’s Crypto Wallets?
If it was Brave’s Crypto Wallets (a MetaMask fork) I don’t think it is compatible with the vault decryptor above.

If it was MetaMask then it would be the same as if it was on Chrome.

There is any decryptor for Brave Crypto wallets?
I’m trying to decrypt using the https://github.com/MetaMask/vault-decryptor
but looks like it’s not compatible, there is any way to decrypt?

If you have a 24 word seed phrase then sorry but that is not supported.
If you have a 12 word seed phrase then you could restore to MetaMask then use it.

I was using MetaMask. But am not able to find this vault location in the Brave folder. I need the .ldb file which is being talked about in the screenshots. Please let me know in case of any more queries.


Sorry if you were using MetaMask then Brave will be the same as Chrome. I think it’s best to try to contact MetaMask support for how to do this recovery.

This is actually regarding the Brave directory, sir. I contacted metamask already, they told me to find the .ldb file in the brave folders. Please help me sir.

If you go to brave://version/ and look under “Profile Path” you can find your profile directory. All data about the profile including extensions and extension data is inside of there.

I have it open but the problem is not being able to find the .ldb file in that folder

I can’t see which path you are on in the screenshot but you probably want a path similar as shown int he screenshot here: Where to find the vault data in brave browser for getting access to lost metamask wallets? - #5 by mojito09
