[Android][AD] Brave is not blocking any ads!

Description of the issue:
Today, I opened the websites I visit everyday and was shocked to see ads everywhere. Everywhere I mean just like when you browse a website without any ads-blocking. I then tried other sites, the same issue. I then reset the browser by clearing all data, the same issue. I then checked Google Play to see if there is any update for the app, no update. I then checked brave on my Mac, fortunately it’s working fine. So, what’s happening to the Android version? Google did something?

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. make sure the block ads feature is turned on.
  2. open gsmarena.com, cnn.com, nytimes.com, lifehacker.com, basically any website you normally see many ads.

Expected result:
Ads are blocked

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave 1.6.0, Chromium 78.0.3904.108

Mobile Device details
OS: Android 9; G8142 Build/47.2.A.10.107
Device: Sony Xperia XZ Premium

Additional Information:

Hello @jamesni
I am on Brave android as well, but going to gsmanera.com like you mentioned shows no ads for me.
Albiet I am on the latest beta from Brave’s Github from here:
https://github.com/brave/browser-android-tabs/releases

Any chance you could screenshot and show which ads are not being blocked?

Thanks!
