Nah, that’s common sense. Everyone knows how YouTube ads look, it’s nothing special.

There are many types of ads. Anyways, could you change the shelfs to aggressive blocking to see if that helps?

Hello @Fizey

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with blocking ads. Our best recommendation is to use this link you can block ads using aggressive mode.

Additionally if you are still seeing ads you can enable these filters Fanboy Annoyances List and uBlock Annoyances List to block most ads and trackers on the web. To select them click on this link: brave://settings/shields/filters then on filters list, search and check on the boxes corresponding to the ones mentioned previously.

Let me know if that works and have a great day!
