Ads not available in Germany


Hi - I have installed Brave and when activating the Rewards I get the message that they are not available in my region which is Germany and should be available in. I am not using a VPN and have version 0.63.55 Chromium: 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Can you help with this? Thank you!


Hallo Bettina, willkommen im Brave Forum.

  1. Hast du Benachrichtigungen für Brave erlaubt? Die Werbung wird in Form von Mitteilungen eingeblendet.

  2. Welches Betriebssystem benutzt du?

  3. Welche Länder- und Spracheinstellungen hast du im System? Dein Werbestandort wird nicht (nur) über die IP ermittelt. Das muss alles auf Deutsch eingestellt sein.

Sorry, my German writing skills are not that great so let me reply in English.

  1. Notifications are on
  2. My computer runs on macOSMojave
  3. Will change the language to German, it is all in English now!

Would be great to get some help here, I also can’t find where I would be able to set up or change my region settings?

Also, notifications must be on for Brave.
Is it listed in the notifications list?

Yeah just checked and they are on, I also got the notification that you just posted a reply to my messge so that seems to be working.

Just double checking: does my Mac language completely need to be set on German? I highly think that could be the case, but just checking now that you are helping :slight_smile:


I never had issues with rewards myself tbh, just enabled it and they showed up.
The problem-solving I suggested to you is based on solutions I have seen work for other people on the forum or what moderators were suggesting to them.
You can just try it out and see if it helps and if it doesn’t, then just switch back to English.


Yeah, I had already tried it out going through the forum myself as well. Will try the language Mac setting and if not I hope maybe someone from Brave can advice. Thanks so much @BraveNew !


Changing the language of my Mac helped… guess I will have to start practicing my German all day.

Na wenn du in Deutschland bist, musst du auch anständig Deutsch können :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


:laughing: I know! But speaking and writing are two very different levels of German learning. Getting there with the talking - soon-ish the writing learning will start!
