Weird car restart and erased/deleted profile and settings

Yesterday I went into my Model Y and the car visualization stopped working. As usual, I just held both buttons down to restart. I let go of the buttons and waited. A couple seconds later I hit the brake button (might've caused this issue?) then the Tesla logo appeared.

As far as I know, holding brake + both buttons shouldn't erase all profiles and settings.

This wasn't due to an update either. I haven't installed an update for a couple weeks already.

Any one know what happened?
