Brave shows YouTube adds

Dear community,

I have Brave installed on my Desktop PC. I have been using Brave for years now, but today, YouTube shows YouTube ads.
YouTube also asked me whether there were any problems regarding their ads. See screenshot.

Which problems did you experience today regarding YouTube ads?

  • too many ads
  • ads were too long
  • the same ads were displayed too often
  • inappropriate content
  • other
  • no problems

I am wondering whether this is a new trick to detect Brave users?

Ads in youtube are a known issue, please help in the megathread
