Detailed description of the behavior:
Early January I downloaded and used NordVPN for access to a site I had no access to. I used the VPN on/off for a couple of days around 1/1/22 - 1/8/22 or so, and I haven’t used it since. Around this time Gemini wallet verification etc., went down and I haven’t received any ads OR rewards since 1/13/22. I have tried re-installing the browser, adjust ads, trying to reset all the options in the brave://flags etc., and nothing has worked.
Someone had mentioned it could be the fact that I used a VPN and if that’s the case I apologize, and I was not using the VPN as a work around for the ads as I already received the max ads I could. I never changed my specific location in the Brave browser to anything except Wisconsin which is where I’m from.
Any help would be appreciated and I hope I haven’t shot myself in the foot with using a separate VPN. I have not used the VPN since before I even stopped getting rewards so I’m not sure if something got triggered with the wallet verification or what, but any advice would help. Thank you.
I still don’t understand what the problem is with using a VPN to browse. VPNs serve to protect users’ privacy, but it seems Brave users don’t have that right. It is absurd and ridiculous that for the simple fact of using a VPN you are considered a suspect / robot or something similar.
