Rewards unable to be set up on Linux

Briefly describe your issue:

Brave on Linux doesn’t seem to have a way to activate Rewards, there is a “back and forth” loop without the ability to enable rewards or connect Uplift.


  • Create new tab.
  • Click on “Start using Rewards”. This brings up the pop-up from the triangle in the URL bar.
  • Click on gear icon, this brings up brave://rewards/
  • Click on “Start using Brave Rewards”, this brings up the pop-up from the triangle in the URL bar.
  • Click on “Unverified”. This brings up brave://rewards/

I recently set up Brave Rewards on my MacOS system and didn’t have this problem, but I don’t remember exactly how it was different. In this case on Linux it seems to just loop between the pop-up and the brave://rewards/

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)?

Ubuntu 22.04, Brave 1.45.123

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)

I don’t think so, but on my MacOS machine I have a verified wallet connected to Uplift. I don’t seem to be able to do the actions that would allow me to verify my wallet on Linux.

What date did you verify your wallet?

A week ago.

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?

On MacOS, yes, on Linux no.

Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)


Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?

Yes, USA.

Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)?


Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to Uphold??


Here is a video showing this in action:

That seems to be an issue. The team is working on it. Hopefully, will have a fix soon. Not only on Linux, also on other OSes, so some problem in Brave.
