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
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.
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.
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.
