Brave AD-Blocker and Rewards


After setting up everything on the Brave Browser there was only one question that was bothering me, if anyone knows the answer, please do reply:

Does the built-in “Trackers & ads blocked (standard)” affect the BAT rewards in any way?


Hi and welcome to the community. :smiley:

Short answer, no. :grin:

Additional information

  • From brave://settings/shields Header Information

Block trackers and ads which follow you across the web.

These are the default Shields settings. They apply to all websites unless you change something in the Shields panel on a particular site. Changing these won’t affect your existing per-site settings.

This will block most ads on websites, not Brave Private Ads — those are controlled in the Brave Rewards settings.
