Description of the issue:

I have paid one year subscription on 3rd of April 2024 via google play store. VPN was working fine for a few weeks and then it has stopped. Now everytime I try to turn on VPN, it redirects me to Brave’s subscription page which doesn’t allow me to click on anything.

I have reinstalled Brave’s app few times with no result.

Detailed description of the behavior:

I subscribed to the brave vpn option, and I am no longer able to use it. When I try to, it takes me to the purchase page but the prices keep loading and there’s no option to select that I already have the VPN subscription. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app and that has not fixed the issue. I’ve tried with wifi and mobile data and there is no change. My subscription shows active until May 11th. I’m not sure what to try at this point.

Detailed description of the behavior:
I purchased a VPN subscription through the play store with an annual plan and was able to immediately link the subscription. After a few weeks I noticed the VPN was not enabled. I tried to enabled the VPN and got a message stating my subscription was no longer active.

Now when I try to enable the VPN I get taken to the purchase screen. If I click on “Manage Subscription” it shows an active subscription through the Play Store. If I log into my account no active plans are shown.

My Brave browser is up to date and I have tried resetting configurations.

I went to use the VPN a few days ago and it won’t log in. It will not get passed this screen. I cleared everything, force stopped the app, deleted the VPN settings on my phone, but it’s still stuck.

Same situation for me, but I have the anual subscription. Has this been remedied?

Même problème ici avec un abonnement annuel payé le 11 octobre 2023 et depuis 4 jours, je n’ai plus accès au VPN de Brave.
Le paiement de l’abonnement c’est fait via le Play store de mon téléphone. J’ai reçu à l’époque un mail de confirmation de paiement pour 1 an. Dans le.mail, il y a une référence mais ne correspond pas au numéro d’abonnement… Comment faire pour envoyer un ticket si la référence dans le mail ne correspond pas au numéro d’abonnement VPN?

@Saoiray @steeven

I am currently having the same issue. When I log into my brave account, it says I don’t have active subscriptions,

However my Google play and my bank account show active and a posted payment.

I purchased the subscription on my phone.
Any help?

Tried to download the VPN. It wouldn’t download and now every time I try to activate it, it just wants me to subscribe to it again. When I click subscribe again, it says I’m already subscribed to VPN and goes back to main menu and still won’t let me download it

This is my ticket number 259041

@Izzymtz @Brycen @domtasc thanks for following up, this should now be resolved. Is it now working as expected for you?
