Brave Rewards always shows -- even though I click on ads

Briefly describe your issue:
Brave Rewards show – even though I click on ads. Does not show any amount.

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?
Version 1.50.119 Chromium: 112.0.5615.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Is your Brave Rewards Profile currently verified? (yes/no)
yes, I have claimed rewards before

What date did you connect a your Brave Rewards Profile?
It’s till local, will connect to Gemini after getting this fixed. Don’t want to lose a slot.

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?

Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)

Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?
Yes, USA

Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)?

Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices?

This is what I see. I have clicked over 300 ads and I have received nothing

You need to be connected to Gemini / Uphold to earn rewards. Kindly connect and you’ll see the amount adding up.

You don’t get paid for clicking ads. Only for having them appear.

You can’t earn BAT unless you’re connected to a custodial partner.

If you clicked Learn More that you see in your screenshot, I believe it would tell you about how you have to be connected to a custodial partner. Otherwise all the ads you’re seeing just are earning for Creators, which gets auto contributed based on your activity on websites. You can see more on the official notice about all of this at

What do you mean? There are no “slots.” If you’re speaking of wallet limits, they removed that last year. You can connect more than the 3/4 that had been limited before. They still will restrict unrealistic numbers, like people who have tried to create BAT farms with 20-50+ devices linked.

Ah! Got it! Last time I wanted to connect I ran out of slots and had to get approvals for custodial etc. That sounds good now! Once I connect to a custodial, all the ads that appear will start adding up right? Also I was told last time I was here to click on the windows notification ads to earn rewards, is that not the case anymore?

Quick question for you on slots. When you reinstall Brave it creates a fresh profile and new wallet ID. Typically in the old days, say you had 4 devices connected, your cell phone dies - you replace it and install a new version of Brave but could not connect (because the browser on your dead phone still counted as a slot, there was no way to remove it, and therefore all your slots were used up). Does the system still do this now that the slots limit has been increased? I ask because I’ve done a fair few resets/reinstalls and wondering how many slots I now occupy in reality! Hope makes sense, finding it hard to explain! :smiley:

@Thrive Here’s the way to think of it. Officially there’s no limit anymore. You can basically connect all of your devices with no issue.

However, in what can feel like double speak, is that their fraud detection system looks for what it deems as unusual activity. It can and does still tell people they have hit wallet limits. But this is just the system saying it’s unusual activity and doesn’t seem like legitimate use. What it’s going to be looking at is how many devices, if they are being used, if it seems casual use or automated/bot, etc.

So no limits, but there is. It’s just that there is not a magical number and the average person who just uses Brave as a normal browser isn’t going to have to ever worry about it. The ones who are getting hit with it are those trying to do things like 12+ active devices, which is unrealistic.

It does keep the connections, yes. Eventually after like a year or so of inactivity, it might drop it. But overall it keeps it linked on Brave’s end.

@Saoiray @Thrive actually, if i try to connect to 3rd device, it logs me out from the first device connected(triangle popup not responding/un-clickable , and if i visit rewards-internals show me that i have to login.)

Thanks, good info. Most of my unused profiles are from the good ole days, a couple of years or more (except the recent resets for the region issues). Hoping I won’t upset the apple cart when I add a couple more devices in the UK.
