"automatic donation" to "Brave Software International"

Description of the issue: I got a new phone recently, installed Brave, didn’t think to check to disable the “automatic donations” because I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3. Yeah not going to reproduce this one

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!): N/A

Expected result: my money back, I never agreed to donate, the terms clearly apply only AFTER I set something up MYSELF, the way the Brave browser tips Brave Software International UNLESS the user SPECIFICALLY un-checks the automatic tipping (which is on by default) is THEFT!

Reproduces how often: Hopefully never

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu): doesn’t matter

Additional Information:

Q: How much money/BAT was this - surely minimal?

Auto contribute is automatically set to on when you install Brave, you have to switch it off as you have discovered. I completely agree with you though, I feel the same way about this as I do about cookies and trackers on other sites - they should be off by default and users should be able to consent by turning it on.

I think it was 1 BAT

Could you please submit the information surrounding this issue to our Rewards Support form. From there we can provide further assistance and investigate your case and likely issue you a refund.

Thank you!

I turn off all the features related to donates, crypto, and gamify of the app. I get sick and tired of such play-time. My reasons for using Brave in the first place are all about privacy.
