Video ads when opening new tab or returning to brave from a different app

For the last couple of days, every time I open a new tab, return to brave from another app, or open my phone to brave, I get a 3 second ad. Sometimes it is black and looks like a video of nothing and other times there’s this tiktok of Mario. I honestly don’t think it’s the website but idk at this point. Not sure if this is helpful information or not, but at first I thought that the app had broken/crashed because the screen just went black (the swipe indicator (iPhone X and up) was still there though). I’m on and iPhone 13 pro max iOS 15.


Ad 1 (black screen)
Ad 2 (Weird Mario tiktok)

Yes, the issue presented with default shield settings.

No, the site does not function as expected when Shields are turned off.

No there is not a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break.

Yes the site works as expected when using Chrome.

Brave version 1.32

Unless its just keeps restoring the tab or session? Could try clearing the app cache/data as a start @jordanc.villines
