- Downloaded Brave
- Used Brave 1 week without issues
- Restarted phone because of a prank video labled “why does is this guy asking me who you are” an acquaintance sent that wouldn’t go away after playing it when trying to use facebook messenger
- Went to mangago.com (A website I KNOW almost always has 2-3 minors ads/trackers)
- Saw an ad
- Checked shield settings
- Brave had 0 for all blocked tallies
- Restarted Brave
- Tried various websites with known trackers/ads, including Instagram, Twitter, archiveofourown.org
- Same results as number 7 for every single website
I’d include a screenshot, but Google seems to like to make me take a bunch of back channel on my phone to do it.
