    I love the browser except for some cookie issues.

    I know how to clean the cookies - or should i say according to Brave and i do all of the time. But for example Amazon doesn't need my password as the email is good enough. And my banks are not asking for two factor after the initial login. So because of this I am led to believe Brave is not deleting all of the cookies.

    Has anyone else run into this?

    Are you referring to the shields? Because they just block the cookies depending on your setting not remove them.

    No. I am clearing the history and cookies for "all time". I am using the Linux version.

    edit - I have an older version. I am going to update.
