Thank you for reaching out to us.
Do you have an in-browser Crypto wallet? Or is this happening to you without having added any wallet data?

No I don’t have any in-browser crypto wallets. It just opens the Brave page to set up a wallet.

This is because Forbes now allows users to pay for articles behind paywalls with ETH. To stop the pop-up from appearing – if you have no wallets added to the browser, go to Settings --> Extensions --> Crypto wallets and toggle this option off.

Interesting, but the articles I’m viewing are not behind pay walls. In any case that seems to solve the issue. It’s just a bit confusing when your crypto wallet page opens up unexpectedly.
