I'm getting weird advertisements in a window from the bottom right hand of brave

Description of the issue:
I get these advertisements on the bottom right hand of my brave browser. It’s a small window that pops up with a small brave icon in it. The advertisement lead to a website called: https://www.constantcontact.com/mainpage

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. I don’t know yet. These ads have popped up once a day since two days ago.

Expected result:
NO ADS, period.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
[83.0.4103.116 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

Additional Information:
I’m wondering if Brave is vulnerable to some kind of exploit that lets people remotely download adware or somethign?

Screenshot of advert? I’m not seeing any obvious issues on the site


It happened again. I managed to take a screenshot this time.

Brave sent this advertisement to my windows 10 notification tray.

That’s Brave Ads, opt-in and private, @feva84. You may accidentally enabled it.

Go to brave:rewards if you want to disable it. Or https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/sections/360004119132-Brave-Ads if you want to learn more about this.
