I run Brave on four devices (3x Windows PCs and 1x iOS) and have been using it for roughly 8 months now. I finally created an Uphold account back in January and have invested financially when BAT was around $0.40, in addition to accruing tokens daily.
I use uniform settings and have linked all devices to my Uphold account, so auto-contribute is all switched turned off, maximum ad popups etc etc.
A couple of days ago I noticed I was down 20.0 BAT, and that I received no email notification that I authorised the transfer. It just happened out of nowhere, see attached image.
I’ve spoken to Uphold and they have stated the following:
“We’re sorry to hear about this, upon reviewing the mentioned transaction(s) it seems it/they might be related to tips or auto contributions as they were triggered by Brave Browser. I advise you to check your Rewards settings and scroll down, there is an option where you see the status. If in any case it is “on” then that would be the reason why this transaction was executed automatically. If the feature is off please contact the Brave support team directly as they should be able to better assist you with this case.”
So here I am, politely requesting aid from a Brave staff member in reversing this transaction. I did some research and have learned it may be a bug from this latest browser version, but I cannot confirm anything more than speculation.
