Annoying Brave browser 'brave rewards' pop-ups
« on: February 11, 2020, 12:44 PM »
I'm getting annoying Brave browser 'brave rewards' pop-ups. How can I shut that off? I don't care about their 'rewards', I just want the pop-ups to stop.

Have you looked in the settings?

You did this to yourself.

Brave Rewards are opt-in by default. This means they were off and you went into the settings and enabled them.

Click the triangle to the right of the address bar, click Rewards Settings, and then turn off what you don't want.

I found Brave Rewards Settings and turned off the pop-up; but now my 'new' home page has a purple nag-tag picture that begs me to turn it back on. Why do companies of great products insist on ripping off or otherwise annoying their loyal patrons? This is getting old fast. I wonder how popular (as in 'un-') the obnoxious Sales staff is with the rest of Brave's crew.

You can also disable that.

In fact, you can remove everything on the New Tab page:

Make sure you also disable "Show Sponsored Images" or that purple bar will show up when there's a sponsored image to tell you that you could be getting paid to see that image by enabling Rewards.

Glad that Deo got it for you... but Patron?  Sales?  Last I checked, the browser was free...

Mm, OK, I paid -and pay- nothing; perhaps what I was attempting to allude to might loosely be termed 'patron of the arts'; and 'sales staff' as in 'promotional dept'? Whoever likes to dream up purple 'nag-tag' pop-ups.

The BAT is one of the reason that a lot of people are drawn to the browser and one of the features, so I guess it depends on their focus.

I apologize if I seemed unduly harsh on what actually appears to be a meritorious arrangement.
