Ads are blocked despite I didn't request it

Description of the issue:

When I open a new tab, I see like: 58 Ads Blocked, despite “Ads and trackers blocked” set to off for sites. I never has set ad blocking on (even for a single site).

Why ads are blocked? How to unblock them?

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Ubuntu Linux 19.10.
Version 0.63.48 Chromium: 74.0.3729.108 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Thats because of Brave’s default Shields settings. We have help documentation that may help explain this.

But I have “Ad Control” set to “Allow ads and tracking”!

That’s my bad – I misread your initial post.
Can you visit and display your Shields panel for me, as shown below?



Please note that the total blocked number refers to the sum total of all elements blocked on the webpage. Observe your Device recognition setting in the image you shared above:
Brave is blocking some page element attempting to read device information (likely screen size so the website can display correctly, in this case). The 1 in the total blocked count reflects the number of items blocked as intended.
