Brave rewards suddenly stopped appearing completely on windows 10 after almost a year of no issues

Briefly describe your issue:
For almost a year my brave rewards appeared with no issues on Windows 10. However the last several months(I believe starting in Feb) I noticed i stopped getting Brave ads completely. Not a single ad has appeared for almost two months and even though in March it said i receieved 77(give or take) ads the BAT didn’t change or reflect this and I received no rewards on Windows for March at all and so far have received zero ads in April even though i’ve spent much more time using brave than I had been. Please advise!

Windows 10 and v1.37.113 of brave

I have used a VPN for most of the time i’ve used brave but for the last two months or so I rarely have my VPN on in windows. It is Mullvad VPN. Recently thinking this may be related to my Ads issue i started enabling the VPN again but it made no difference.
