I have same issue

Enpass 6.6.0 (770)

Brave version 1.21.73 Chromium: 89.0.4389.72 (Build officiel) (64 bits)

Brave Version 1.20.103 Chromium: 88.0.4324.152 (Build officiel) (64 bits) It Work


Turned off Brave Shields: Work but not a real solution

Workaround while waiting for a real solution

1 At start Brave, go setting turn off Brave Shields

2 Test Enpass, it work

3 And turn on Brave Shields, Brave+enpass work in this session.

If you restart Brave you must repeat step 1 to 3

Hi All,

Sorry for the trouble you are going through.

It looks like Brave browser recently added a Brave Shields, which is blocking the Enpass app from connecting with the browser extension. We have notified them about this issue on their community forums here.https://community.brave.com/t/brave-shield-blocking-enpass-extension/212460

I can confirm @sharky's workaround does indeed work. Turn off Brave Shields and open the enpass extension so it can make its connections, then turn the shields back on.

I will say, the specific setting is Trackers and Ad Blocking set that to disabled, open the enpass extension, and then set it back to you're choice of "Standard" or "Aggressive".

Go to 


Then go to the custom filters and add this:


That should fix it. Works fine for me and my friends.
