Unblocked pop-up tabs

***redacted post - see below ***

I’m starting to get various alert/notification tabs in the lower right-hand corner of my screen.

This issue was not present for the first two weeks of using Brave.

The alerts show up in the same fashion that MS Office notifies me when I’ve received a new e-mail, etc.

The notifications are mainly from spammy ICO/Ethereum projects or websites (all of which I’ve never visited, or heard of).

These notifications only pop-up when the browser is open.

These pop-ups happen once every 30 minutes or so.

I am using Microsoft - desktop.

Hi @wcsavage,

You may have Brave Ads enabled under brave://rewards. If you have this option enabled, Brave will show you Brave Ads as system notification.

If you don’t want it, you can disable it. :slightly_smiling_face:

I was unaware that the ads would be coming in the form of pop up ads. I had assumed that the ads would be similar to other ads I see as i brows the web. Thanks for the info.
