  2. Scroll down to bottom, click yes I’m ready!
  3. Error results

    Expected result:

Reproduces how often: Eery time I try

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):Windows 10, Brave Version 1.4.96

Very strange – are you connected to a VPN of any kind? Also, can you double check your Brave version for me? You reported using v 1.4.96 – this is not any active version number I’m aware of. You should find the version in the bottom left of the Settings screen, or on the About Brave page:

Hrmm… thanks for your reply it made me realize that I installed Brave using scoop (a package manager for windows) but scoop was pointing to a file on github that must be out dated. I uninstalled and reinstalled the installer from Brave’s homepage. But now when I try to opt into Brave rewards it says its not supported in my region for some reason??
