Lost 11.5 BAT due to Auto Contribute Bug

Auto Contribute deducted my 11.5 BAT even though Auto Contribute was off.

Just happened 2 days ago while browsing brave saw a pop-up thought that I got some BAT, But it was a pop-up for auto contribute which was off by default.

So it deducted my whole wallet which contained 11.5 BAT while I had my auto contribute off before.

After the deduction I found out auto contribute was on which I didn’t turn on previously.

I had recently updated brave about 3 days ago.(android)

Please I request if possible can I get a refund.

The following attachments are down below.

The following Auto Contribute info is available both as a text and on attached file.

Hi @suxbhtx, I can help. Please DM me your wallet ID. Thanks!

Sometimes i have realised that after setting up your account; it happens that when you leave for the next tasks,if you come back; you will find that your settings went back to the default settings,so my advice is to keep checking from time to time. I wish you all the best! :100:

the autocontribution activated itself, it sent 20 bats to facebook, Can i get them back??
