18.25 BAT were sent to BravePublishers without my consent

Last month I see that 18.25 BAT has been transferred automatically to BravePublishers. At no time have I activated the auto-contribute, please I would like to be able to recover the BAT I had.


Same thing happened to me yesterday. Did you get any reply?

@sateri @Shat279 - did you disable Auto-contribute on your device? It’s on by default.

Yes, I’ve been using Brave for a few months and never used the Auto-Contribute feature, and this was the first time this happened.

@steeven So by default, you’re stealing automatically the BATs from your users? Nice.

Btw, the same thing happened to me yesterday and my BATs are gone.

Hi again.
Just received a reply from Uphold, telling me to get in touch with you.
Since the funds were sent to you, could you simply return the BAT tokens?

Dear, I’ve been using the browser since last year and this has never happened to me before. It seems to me that this is a bug of some update, because there are many users who complain about the same thing. Please what is the procedure so that the BAT sent without authorization can be returned to us.

HI @steeven, in my case the automatic contribuition are disabled, but my BATs were sent same way. Can we find someone to try solve this?

Thanks for reporting. I’d like to ask a few questions to start:

  • Do you have multiple devices linked to your Uphold? If so, how many?
  • Can you share a screenshot of your Contributions and Event Log tabs which can be found here brave://rewards-internals/

Thank you in advance!

Yes I have 4 devices, mobile, tablet and two computers Linux and windows that uses Brave Browser.


Please DM the email linked to your Uphold account.
