Something is really wrong if the course of action is for hundreds of individuals to PM one developer.

Meanwhile plenty others are none-the-wiser and continue to be robbed of their earnings.


For anyone here still encountering the issue:

If you’ve sent me a DM with the requested information – I got it and the info has been forwarded to the necessary team members and we are actively working on a solution. Please exercise patience as problems like this are often complex.

having this exact issue today… :sweat::sweat:

For anyone here who is encountering this issue – we are wondering if one of you would be willing to jump on a call with a team member and I later to screen share and see if we can further isolate the issue.

If you’re interested in helping us with this, please send me a DM with the subject line “Ads Counter Screen Share” so I can easily tell who is interested. Note that we will likely only need one volunteer at this time.

Thank you.


Also, a couple of other questions for the thread. What OS and Brave versions are you using? Also, do any of you have your same Brave rewards account connected to multiple devices?


I’ve had this problem for months…since I first started using. Quite frustrating, glad it’s not just me

In my case, my brave rewards account is only connected to one device and my version of Brave is Version 1.14.84 Chromium: 85.0.4183.121 (Official Build) (32 bits)

Hi same issue for me, counter stopped working. I reinstall Brave, but no change in ads count.

hi, i’m on mac os and i have this issue for 10 days.

I have Brave rewards connected to multiple laptops - two are Windows 10 and one is OSX and all are running 1.14.84. Let me know if you need more info

Hi @yotov96, I work on the ads team at Brave. Would you be willing to screen-share so I can help diagnose the issue? Thanks
