Description of the issue:
Have not received brave ads this month. Not sure if it started when updating to newest version of the browser. I am using Mac OSX Catalina How can this issue be reproduced?
Use the browser
Receive up to 5 ads per hour Brave Version( check About Brave):
If I right click a link in my email or other places, I have the option to open with Safari, Brave (22.214.171.124) or Brave (126.96.36.199). I have tried turning ads on and off, reducing them to 1 per hour rather than 5, resetting my computer etc. I use do not disturb occasionally, but have restarted since using that feature as well. Thank You
Hopefully you’ll start to see some ads within a few minutes. If so, you’ll need to repeat that process once per day, because the VPN is blocking the ads catalog from refilling automatically on your system. The Brave team is looking for a permanent solution, but in the mean time, this is a workaround.
To ensure that the system is working as intended all things “normal” I would recommend not using the VPN for bit until you can confirm that the system is working correctly without it. Updating was a good first step to take – if you don’t see any ads in the next hour let me know and we can do some troubleshooting.
