Unable to turn on ads even though I am in a supported region

When I try to enable Brave Ads at brave://rewards, it says “Sorry! Ads are not yet available in your region.”
But my country is listed in the supported regions list.
My laptop also has both Windows and Linux on it, and Brave Ads work on the Linux version. They also work on my phone.
I have tried reinstalling Brave.
How can I fix this?

Check your laptop timezone settings. There are some countries who share the same time zone. Check if it’s correct.


List of countries may have not been apdated?

Try this:

Go to Control Panel, Regions, open Format Tab and change as appropriate.
Open Administartive Tab, go to Change System Locale and change as as appropriate.

Check if ads are available for your region. https://sampson.codes/brave/ads/my_region/


Hi, thanks for responding.
I tried what you said and changed the system locale to my country, but it still says the same thing.
Ads are available for my region as the website you sent works and Brave Ads work on my phone.


Do you use VPN? Check it here https://whatismyipaddress.com/ ?
If yes, disable it.
If No, continue.
Try stopping or deleting, if you can, the extensions and check if this solves your problem?

I don’t use a VPN.
I don’t have any extensions that would change my location.



Is your region correct according to the link above?


Yeah, my location is correct

Create a new profile, name it TEST, and enable Brave rewards.

Delete the TEST profile.

I can’t enable rewards even in the TEST profile
