I noticed the other day that I stopped receiving brave ads on my home pc. I have been trying to diagnose the problem with no success until now. My work computer and my phone were working just fine. I have narrowed the issue down to a lack of webcam.
One way that I figured this out is that I have noticed multiple times an ad will pop up as I am sitting down at my computer. I had not touched my computer in hours and all of the sudden I just happened to get an ad right when I sat down? Not likely…
I started doing some more tests. I covered my webcam up on my laptop and I have not received a single ad since.
I then uncovered my camera and 15 seconds later received an ad.
I have tried a few steps and it seems my problem is fixed now. I still have not figured out the issue with my home pc, will try reinstalling brave and see if that fixes the issue there. Thanks for all the helpful comments.
