Hi, jmag1k

Step 4 worked for me when i had this issue. :slight_smile:

Here are a couple of things I have learned from trying to troubleshoot brave browser and ads.

Check out to see how Brave is progressing and see more info

On Desktop:

  1. If you use a VPN, make sure it is running when you download, install and start brave browser. (it isn’t REQUIRED to do those things, but it just keeps it simple)
  2. On Windows 10 – make sure notifications are turned on for the browser, on in general, and Focus Assist is off.
  3. start the brave browser and go through the setup.
  4. Head on over to this website to invoke a notification ->
  5. you should begin noticing ads if and when they become available to you. Depending on how many ads are served in your area, you may notice it frequently… but it will come no more than 5 times an hour.
  6. If you do not notice ads in a while, restart the rewards service. Head over to your brave rewards settings, turn off Brave Rewards, then turn ON Brave Rewards (you will not lose any BAT doing this).

ON MacOS – Same steps as Windows, just different settings.

  1. Make sure do not disturb is turned OFF for the times you want to receive ads

good luck :slight_smile:

That fixed it. Turning on notifications for Brave in Windows settings and restarting the rewards service. Thank you for your help!
