According to the firm, Sync v2, as it calls it, was rebuilt over the last several months to be more compatible with the Chromium sync system. And Sync v2 supports more sync data types, while still keeping its client-side data encrypted, so only users can see their own data. Sync v2 supports the syncing of bookmarks, passwords, autofill data, browsing history, open tabs, extensions, themes, settings, and web apps. And support for Brave Rewards data sync is coming soon.
