Brave version (check About Brave): Release Notes v1.60.125 (Nov 29, 2023)

Creating this as a master topic for all the duplicate posts regarding YouTube showing the adblock warning/notice.


Remains the same. Keep browser updated, go to brave://components and make sure everything there is updated. Lastly, you may need to clear all Google/YouTube cookies.


I actually had just experienced this message for the first time myself.

When I first saw the notice I made sure to update components and tried. Notice appeared again, so then went to clear cookies just for YouTube. When I returned, it didn’t take long for the notice to appear again.

I gave it a little time and then checked components again. Much to my surprise it did an update or two, even though had done it just like 10-20 minutes before. I then went to brave://settings/content/all and searched for Google and YouTube and then removed all cookies. When I returned, so far YouTube isn’t giving the notice.

Then to one up, I also just did the update to Brave 1.61. I have video playing this entire time and no issues. I’ll let you know if it comes back for me. Otherwise assuming everything has been resolved for now.
