ads not being blocked

Any search on shows several ads before the actual search results. Surely these should be blocked? See image below:

Shields are on

Changing to “aggressive” blocking fixed this (clicked on the brave icon).
Not sure what the difference is


Hi @alm1 a fix is on it’s way, give it 24-48hrs. Keep shields ads/trackers = Aggressive

Thanks. This has been driving me crazy, just started. “Aggressive” fixed it for me as well on Mac.


Just updated to “Aggressive” as suggested and that fixed the issue on my end as well. Looking forward to a permanent fix for this!

Upgrading to “Aggressive” also works for me, thanks for the fix.

I’m also glad to stay on the aggressive setting. Didn’t know there was one, but I’m happy to block more ads.
