Weird notification popups from brave in windows 10

Description of the issue: i’ve been getting weird popups in my notification bar from brave. they seem really spammy but i can’t seem to find out where they’re coming from. i’ve cleared the cache/cookies but it still happens.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3. i’ve only had brave for a week so i don’t know how to reproduce it. i’ve only downloaded 2 things and both are from secure websites that i’ve used several times.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!): -

Expected result: -

Reproduces how often: multiple times a day.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu): windows 10 pro x64; Version 0.64.75 Chromium: 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit)

@Cakaza, thanks for reaching out.

Thanks for reaching out.

Is there any chance that you have “Brave Ads” enabled under Brave Rewards (brave://rewards)?

If you have this feature enabled, Brave will show you Brave Ads as a notification. This feature is available for Brave on desktop.
