Briefly describe your issue:
I have accidentally turned on auto-contribute while the phone was in my pocket and it automatically donated 5 BAT somewhere and it will not say where.

What Operating System and Brave version are you using (Menu --> About Brave)? I am using the most recent update of android as well as Brave.

Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)
My wallet finally reached enough bat to verify although this occured before I had an oppirtunity.

What date did you verify your wallet?

Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past? I havent had any issues in the past.

Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)
No

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

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

Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to Uphold??
I have, although I am wondering if they will return my BAT (i doubt it). I ask because it says that it will automatically send bat to the places you visit most but I have nothing in my donation history let alone when you turn off auto contribute it removes that row from the overview of your wallets in and out activity…

Design Feature:

Maybe a tiny circular object at the base of the Rewards triangular icon (right end of URL address field) - for indicating that Auto-Contribute is ON?

Yeah, I suppose something to inform me that it has turned on would be nice, but better would be a warning box asking if i am sure i want to turn on auto-contribute, and the only way to confirm is to follow a maze path for a bit or something to stop pocket “turn ons” from happening… that would solve the problem instead of alerting me when it has happened…

Hey y’all. Brave GitHub issue report that I thought might be of interest. :slightly_smiling_face:

Has been opened a while with no movement and is in backlog, so not a high priority. There was a recent bug with auto-contribute. Thought I would post it too.
