BAT stolen from account

Somehow Auto-Contribute became enabled on its own. I did not enable it. 20 BAT was donated and I did not initiate the donation. I was notified of the donation today when I connected to a call (coincidence I suppose). I sent an email to but I was informed that email is no longer in use.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Use Brave browser.
  2. Auto-Contribute enables itself unknown to the user.
  3. BAT gets donated without your consent.

Auto-Contribute should stay disabled when disabled.

Brave version: Version 1.18.75 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (32-bit)

Thanks for reporting. Iā€™d like to ask a few questions to start:

  • Do you have multiple devices linked to your Uphold? If so, how many?
  • Can you share a screenshot of your Contributions and Event Log tabs which can be found here brave://rewards-internals/

Thank you in advance!

@steeven I sent you the info you asked, waiting patiently!!

I have two, my PC and my Mac. Both are verified on the same Uphold account. Mac still has the option OFF. PC turned the option ON by itself.

Event logs. I manually disabled it on 12/22/2020 05:31:21PM, after it being auto enabled on 12/20/2020 04:32:07AM.
