Some users have been experiencing Youtube ads that bypass Shields using Brave on both mobile and/or Desktop. While we’ve already pushed out a hotfix for both platforms – please ensure that you check for application updates in the Google Play store for Android, or
Menu --> About Brave for Desktop.
If you’ve confirmed that you are already on the most up to date version of the Brave but you’re still seeing Ads appear on Youtube, you can help us resolve this issue by providing us with some information – please reply to this thread with:
- Your Brave version/OS info – you can find this by going to
Brave://versionand copy/pasting the top 3 lines from that page, like so:
- What type of Ads you tend to see on Youtube (overlay ads, web page ads, in-video ads, etc)
Brave Ad Block Updaterfor Status and Version number (you should be seeing version 1.0.616).
- (optional) Try watching Youtube content in a Private browsing window and see if ads still appear.
All the information is safe to post publicly here on Community. We appreciate your help and your patience as we work on resolving this issue!
