Briefly describe your issue:
My android phone is in Japanese, while I am personally based elsewhere. When verifying my wallet with a partner, I am only able to choose BitFlyer, and in creating an account, I get an error message from BitFlyer - We do not accept registrations from persons not residing in Japan.
I am not on a vpn; my location is where I normally reside.
I do not see an option to change this region.
What Operating System and Brave version are you using (
Menu --> About Brave)?
Android 9, Brave 1.43.90
Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)
What date did you verify your wallet?
Unable to verify wallet
Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?
Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)
Are you eligible for Brave Rewards (see here for list of supported regions)?
Are you on the list of supported regions when verifying Brave Rewards with a custodial partner (see here for list of supported regions)?
Yes, but the region is wrong.
Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)?
Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to a custodial partner?
Things I have tried
- Changing my phone language to English.
- Closing and re-opening Brave.
- Reinstalling Brave while my phone language is still in English - in the process, losing all of my BAT rewards. Luckily, it wasn’t a lot.
The last option worked, but I lost my tokens in the process. Please have a better way to do this.
