Brave browser comes with a sync feature which (at least to me) is very useful for syncing autofill, bookmarks, history etc across all the devices the modern nerd might have (desktop, laptop, maybe virtual machine, mobile phone etc).

One of the issues is the lack of “force sync” within the options, but I found the “force sync” button (called “Request Start”) within sync-internals.

If you want to force a sync (assuming you are already part of a chain etc) do the following:

  1. go to brave://sync-internals/
  2. press “Request Start”
  3. wait
