PSA: YouTube Adblock Detection

Malwarebytes extension would probbaly cause issues, Shields by itself will still block the detection (with the latest component update).

Many extensions (adblock/privacy/youtube-related) will cause issues with youtube, since the rules are updated daily and since these other extensions aren’t updated regularly. Brave and uBO get blamed for breakage or ads.

  1. Make sure brave://components Brave Ad Block Updater is the latest
  2. Test in private window mode, no extensions.
  3. Clear cookies and cache and then relogin. (Important)
  4. Check

There maybe a delay when an youtube uBO update is out and when Brave gets it (around an hour).
