Brave is buggy and support is not helpful

I was using brave for almost a year, during that time I lost BAT at least 3 times.

On last time that I lost BAT I decided to open a topic here in this forum, I opened it on April 14th.
I gave all the requested information and nothing was solved and the topic set as unlisted.

I know software has bugs, but brave has a lot, and when those bugs occur brave support is not helpful.

People get their topics ignored, unlisted or closed. When they are lucky they receive a reply with “send me the details by DM” and then that DM gets ignored.

I think the idea behind brave is nice but not that well executed.


Today i also get lost 28 BAT and no response from community support.Brave has no email and only method for rising issue is this but they are not helping.


@steeven look into this matter

Hi @Mandrake6 - thank your for taking the time to write in (again). I assure you that we are here to help. We are a tiny team supporting a user base of 15 million +. I’d like to help sold your issue. Do you have a link handy to your original report and I can review from there. Thank you.


i think he ment that post

it’s his oldest one


I agree. My support experience has definitely been less-than-satisfactory. I lost a bit over 20 USD in BAT recently and it sucks that posting to the forums is the only way to get support. No phone number or email address that I can find and their actual support website only has FAQ and such and will direct you to the forums.


What about my problem?


Hi @steeven,

It’s exactly the post that @justsomeone1 gave.

Here’s the link again:


How can someone become part of your team ? So you can grew up little bit and get more solved problems?

nice one @shameonyou


I’ve sent a DM got a reply asking for screenshot then I came back to it a week later and the message doesn’t exist anymore…

@steeven sure I know how it is with working in a “small team” as I’ve worked for a £70m annual revenue e-commerce business as a sole developer for like 1.5 year


I gave up and not using it anymore.

I had 45 BAT on my MacBook with El Capitan. I jotted-down my pass phrase and then install High Sierra.

When I put my pass phrase into my new Brave installation it only found 7 BAT!!!


This was weeks ago.
