Brave doesn’t ask for a password when I try to open the browser. It forgot all my passwords.
Well, after many years as an IT support technician, I can tell you that it’s not a good idea entrust a browser with all your information, in case something like this happened. And it does, more often than you’s think.
Unfortunately, I don’t know if the passwords can be saved or not, but I doubt it.
Rather get yourself a password manager to do that. That list is extremely incomplete, though. I know there are more than two.
I use KeepassXC to do that. And it, together with the Firefox plugin, makes my handling of passwords a breeze. And it’s available in the repositories:
$ pamac search keepass [...] keepassxc [Installed] 2.6.4-1 community Cross-platform community-driven port of Keepass password manager [...]
There is also a mobile version of it, KeepassDX, that I also use.
You might bee in luck. According to this page:
then look for file called Login Data
but the issue that this file is encrypted using your old username account
so i do not think that it will work
but give it a try
another way that i am not sure if it will work or not
copy your brave-browser folder from your old drive to any location you like then
that you start brave using flags --user-data-dir=the new location that you copied our folder too (use brave-browser folder)
so for example it could be something like that /home/username/Downloads/brave-browser
the brave-browser-stable are in the /usr/bin folder
and see if it show up your old profile or not
if it did then see if you can go to
brave://settings/passwordsand export the password from there
hope that help and have a nice day
But if the database file’s not there I don’t know.
Hope this helps!
