Protection on new sites ALWAYS deactivated

protection on ALL new sites ALWAYS deactivated - why is that? I want it to be ALWAYS ON

Exact URL of the website in question:
for instance:

Screenshot of the ad as it appears in Brave

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?

Brave version (check About Brave):

Version 1.40.113 Chromium: 103.0.5060.114 (Offizieller Build) (x86_64)

Which protection? Just loaded the site; Not using a VPN?

Called Brave Shields

I am using Brave in German, but looking for the setting “AllTime” and “site and shield settings” (I looked for the German translation), but I can’t find any Settings like that

copy and paste this in your address bar


Hit Enter.

Select Time range to “All time”
uncheck everything except “Site and shields settings”.

Make sure only “Site and shields settings” is checked

and select “Clear data”

Your issue will be fixed.

forgot to tag your post


Adding to what @shdsoi recommended:

Return to: brave://settings/clearBrowserData

Advanced tab:

  • Set: Time range: All time
  • Disable: Site and shields settings

Click the ‘Clear data’ button.

Return to: brave://settings/clearBrowserData

On exit tab:

  • Disable: Site and shields settings

Click ‘Save’ button.

So that future Shields settings, stick.
