One more thing to try in Brave.

Enabling that in:


Of the Android browser still triggers the adblock detected pop up.

And on the desktop version what I meant is that if I switch shields off and use the ublock extension to access the same site adblock pop-up is not triggered

@monxster In the future, if you have things like this come up, please post it in the Ad-Blocking category instead of just the generic Browser Support. I’m moving your topic over there now so it can be seen.

Indeed. I find brave to be very good when it comes to native ad blocking, but never forget it’s an arms race.

Try using anti adblock lists.
