Keeps redirecting to ad pages

shields are full, still i am getting redirected to other sites. i have been using brave since Feb this year. this is first time it is happening. i’ve tried resetting the settings and even uninstalled and reinstalled the app. what to do?

redirecting to ad pages.
How can this issue be reproduced?
showing you an example website.

  1. Go to
  2. select a movie/show you wish to see.
  3. click the play button.

Expected result: you are thrown to a new tab with ads.

Brave Version( check About Brave): V 1.24.85

Hi @AlphaWhiskey, welcome to Community :smiley:

Unfortunately I am uncertain how to help with this matter. I have tried to replicate your issue and having the same issue even with the new update. Personally I have used this site before and this issue seems to be across all browsers. This might be a matter on the website itself. :frowning:

Try adding ||^ into brave://adblock, then refresh the page.

Will be in Brave in the next 24hrs ^ @SaltyBanana @AlphaWhiskey

Can confirm that if you use brave://adblock and use Fanboy Annoyances List or uBlock Annoyance List

Give that a good ol fashion try :slight_smile:

Well the problem seems to have been solved. Thanks for your response guys.
