Not sure how many people are impacted, but know in the past couple days, there have been a few who have written in to talk of how no ads are being shown on their Android. I was able to replicate this myself and have reported it to the Rewards team and Support. They are busy looking over logs and trying to determine the overall cause and solution.
Just wanted to advise that if you’re on Android, it’s possible that you’ll not be seeing ads for Rewards at this time until they can get it resolved. It is a known issue and one that I’m hoping they can get fixed soon.
This seems to be impacting those who updated Brave to 1.48 or higher. If all goes well, should be resolved by the end of today, but we shall see. For those impacted, this means you’ll not have seen NTP ads, push notifications, or Brave News inline content.
UPDATE Feb 16, 2023.
Rewards Team believes they might have found the issue and just rolled out a server side mitigation. The hope is this will resolve this issue for those of us experiencing problems. It may take up to 24 hours or so for us to see the impact.
The next step is to do a browser fix. So while they didn’t especially say this, it may mean the server side mitigation that they are doing might just be putting a bandage on things until the bigger fix lands. Hoping it will carry with no issues until then.
