Hi, @zeby , you’re likely having this issue because you are using a VPN. Please visit this page and read it thoroughly.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I do need VPN on a daily basis in order to access certain websites, not " for the purpose of downloading ad catalogs from other countries." If it’s not allowed, is there a way for Brave to bypass the VPN connection, thanks!

I understand.
Unfortunately, at this time there isn’t. Users must decide which is more important to them, receiving Brave Rewards or using a VPN. :confused:

Hmm, ok, then. Thank you. :neutral_face:

The VPN is blocking the ads catalog from refilling automatically. There is a workaround that you will have to perform once per day (the catalog holds about a day’s worth of ads):

  1. Temporarily disable the VPN
  2. Close and reopen Brave
  3. Wait until you start seeing notification ads (5-15 minutes)
  4. Renable your VPN

There is no issue with using a VPN with Brave as long as you are using only VPN servers in the region in which you are actually located.
