Are advertisements vetted for safety?

Hello-- I’m getting notifications for ads on Brave after I opted in. Can anyone point me to a link on brave.com, or explain to me whether the advertising links are “safe”? I mean that the websites are not phishing/scamming/virus-laden?

There are several ways we prevent harmful ads from ever being served on the platform:

  1. Third party ads require data collection in order to function as expected. Brave blocks third party ads and trackers, including ad exchanges and networks that commonly deliver malware and malvertising.
  2. The same Brave shields that protect users as they browse the web are active in ad tabs. Advertisers are required to go through an approval process before they are able to setup campaigns with Brave
  3. Individual ads are also approved by real people before they are deployed from the ad server.
