Cannot connect Verified Uphold account

Briefly describe your issue:
Brave doesn’t let me link my Uphold account anymore. The Uphold account is verified. I can top up and withdraw with it, but in Brave I cannot select Uphold to link with it.
I checked that I’m in France and it’s compatible but it says “Currently not compatible in your region.” (see image).

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?
Version 1.46.153 Chromium: 108.0.5359.128 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)
No. It was but I did nothing and it’s not anymore.

What date did you verify your wallet?
“Verified on 11/08/2022”

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

Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)
I tried with and without

Are you eligible for Brave Rewards (see here for list of supported regions)?
From France, yes.

Are you on the list of supported regions when verifying Brave Rewards with a custodial partner (see here for list of supported regions)?
From France, yes.

Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)?
Not Android.

Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to a custodial partner?

  • So when Brave asked you to choose your country, you chose France?

  • If you go to brave://rewards-internals does it show you in France for Rewards country?

  • Are you actually from France? (a different way of phrasing: is your device Locale marked for France?). I’m asking this as I know sometimes people travel. Part of me wondering if this might be some conflict.

In regards to this, I’m kind of curious. If you Create a new profile in the browser, will this issue replicate there? (Asking you to hit three dots referred to as hamburger menu, create a new profile, activate rewards, choose France for country, then see if it shows Uphold grayed out there as well)

Yes Uphold becomes selectable but only for the new profile

I often use VPNs for work

I restarted my computer with no VPN at all and it worked
