That is weird. @mattches could you have a look?

What ad was it that you clicked that took you to the Settings page?

Hi @Mattches,

Here are two recent push notification ads that sent me to “brave://settings/”.

Thank you for this information.
I’m passing this information onto the team for review.

Oh, wait. @BruhLight and @Mattches that might make sense based on the screenshot shared. That ad is talking about Web Discovery Project for Brave. You can see that it says go to configurations and opt for web discovery project. So clicking on that ad did exactly what it mentioned, which is to open the settings so they could opt in to Web Discovery Project.

If you’re not familiar with Web Discovery Project, it’s one of the primary ways that Brave expands its Search. You can read all about it at

Other thing I want to advise you on is that you don’t need to click on ads to earn BAT or anything. Only click on ads if you’re seeing them and are interested.
