YouTube Ads Persisting on Brave Browser - Need Assistance

Hello Brave community,

I hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my experience with the Brave browser, but I’ve recently encountered an issue that I’m hoping someone here can help me with.

Despite the robust ad-blocking capabilities of Brave, I’ve noticed that ads are still appearing when I’m watching videos on YouTube. I’m using the latest version of Brave, and I’ve ensured that my shields are up and configured to block ads. However, the problem persists.

Has anyone else faced a similar issue with YouTube ads slipping through while using Brave? If so, were you able to find a solution? I’m particularly keen on enjoying an ad-free experience on YouTube, and any insights or tips on resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated.

For context, I’m using Brave on an Intel Core i7 laptop, and I haven’t experienced this issue on other websites.

Thank you in advance for your assistance, and I look forward to hearing your suggestions!

Best regards,


The YouTube ads started for me today February 20, 2024.

Just stared for me too

Thanks for reporting.
I just noticed this as well and quite literally just informed the team about it. I’m seeing this issue with all ad block related components updated as well.

Please note that, as stated here, this is likely going to be a constant battle with Youtube as they are crafty when it comes to getting by ad-blockers.

Will update here when I have more information.


youtube ads started again just now

Hey, Brave team is aware of this and they are working on a fix. They will let us know with more info. Thanks!
