Here's a fix for those not receiving ad notifications. (WIN 10)

This is a fix for those not receiving any advertisement notifications from Brave on Window 10 OS.
No downloads are required for this. So, let’s get ready for a Professional DIY Tech Fix!


Phase 1: The check up

Start < Settings < System < Notifications & actions

Make sure “Get notifications from apps and other senders” is set to “On”.

Scroll down until you see a list of “Get notifications from these senders” & look for “Brave”.

Phase 1 is now FINISHED!

If you DO NOT see “Brave” on the “Get notifications from these senders” list, please proceed to phase 2.

Phase 2: The fix

Go to:

Select "Authorize"

When it asks “ wants to Show notifications” select "Allow"
Website Allow

The text box below the buttons should have printed: “Permission to display: granted”
Now select “Show”.

You will receive a notification,
this should force windows 10 to add “Brave” to the “Get notifications from these senders” list.

Repeat Phase 1 & you will see that “Brave” has successfully been added to the “Get notifications from these senders” list.

Phase 2 is now FINISHED!

Phase 3: The tune-up

Start < Settings < System < Notifications & actions < Brave

Notifications: On
Show notification banners: Ticked
Show notifications in action center: Ticked
Hide content when notifications are on lock screen: Un-ticked
Play a sound when a notification arrives: Ticked (optional)
Number of notifications visible in action center: 5
Priority of notifications in action center: Top

Now open the Brave browser.
Rewards < Ads Settings
ad settings

From there you can select: Maximum number of ads displayed per hour.
(5 per hour is currently the maximum)
MAX Adverts

Next customize your Auto-Contribute settings to your liking.
Rewards < Auto-Contribute

Now for the final step.
It’s time to tidy up your brave notifications from within the browser.
Go to: chrome://settings/content/notifications

Within this menu find: “More actions” < “Remove” Do this with any site you don’t want showing notifications. (These settings are for website notifications & will NOT effect your ads)
Clean up

Phase 3 is now FINISHED!

Congratulations, you’ve made it to the end and hopefully now you’re receiving ads! :sunglasses:

I truly hope this helps a lot of you out there! I tried to make this guide as user-friendly as possible.
I thought I would contribute back to this great community with a great fix.
