Stuck in endless captcha loop NO VPN in use

Can’t use brave search, it just asks me to repeat a slide captcha over and over again. Using Android. Happens in brave app and in brave search on chrome app. All fixes I can find say turn off VPN but I’m not using one. Mildly infuriating is a nice way of putting it.

Hello @silencefoolishmortalm, thank you for contacting us. Have you updated to the most recent version? Did you tried turning OFF/ON your shields? Can you please share a screenshot? That would help us to identify the issue and provide better assistance.

Thanks in advance.
