Ads are no longer blocked on YouTube

As of 6/16/2020, no ads are being blocked on YouTube.

I have tried clearing cookies and updating brave;components with no luck.

If I have to see stuttery Biden or blimpy Trump again just to watch some guy make caramel pudding, I’m going to lose my absolute nugget.

I am getting ads on YouTube when I use Brave on my phone but not on my computer. How can I block these? Thank you.

It’s not only that ads aren’t blocked, but it’s not even allowing the skip ad option anymore either. Shield up or down, I don’t get a Skip Ad button. Seems very similar to this thread.

I tested this in Firefox as well, and that seems to still be working fine so seems like something with Brave for sure.

I had forgotten how much I despise commercials, and they have gotten extremely out of hand since I last browsed without a blocker.

I tried this solution, but it didn’t work for me. Thanks for the suggestion though.

What does “reset Brave” mean?

in advanced settings you can reset Brave settings. first it worked for me, but after a little while youtube started to show ads again :confounded:

if Brave doesn’t block youtube ads anymore then you should install add blocker.

here is awesome add blocker “Addblock plus”. it works also with Brave browser.
I’m not sure does it block Brave rewards ads, but I don’t care about Brave rewards anyway…

I find the same thing. Brave on PC (Win10) blocks all ads. On my Android, not so much anymore. Hope they fix soon!

This looks like it’s for PC, which for at least some of us does not have a problem. How do I do this on Android to see if it helps?

Or, how do I install a separate adblocker to Brave on my Android device? – Round it on chrome play store, but no way to install :frowning:

I also have started seeing the insipid (can’t say S t u. p i d as it is blocked) ads on YouTube. I am trying some of the extensions for Chrome to see if they help.

Skip Ad
Youtube Video Skip Ad Trigger

So far the results are pretty good. They seem to help but I can’t say that I never get the ads every time.

Adblock Plus does currently block YouTube ads. I’d rather use Brave’s native blocker and not have to use a 3rd party blocker, but I’m marking this as a solution, if only a band-aid one.

Hopefully this functionality is fixed soon!

You can try refreshing the page if that helps.

The best way to get rid of advertisements on YouTube is to subscribe to YouTube. That way, you are not leaving it to the advertising business model to fund it, which will inevitably result in it continually going downhill until it’s completely worthless.

I too recently started getting YouTube ads before and now during videos. Many of them political ads, no less. :confused: EDIT: I’m on Android.

Yes, for 2 days now, I’m seeing Youtube ads on the desktop Brave version.

Also, I’m seeing people here recommending to add an ad-blocking extension to Brave. But, guys, wasn’t the whole point of using Brave was to have an adblocker built-in while having control to what ads you decide to see and get a cut/share from Brave for looking at those ads? Come on…
