Adblocker For Youtube

Adblocker For Youtube is supposed to help you get rid of the ads shown on YouTube, but the application itself might collect users’ data to show targeted advertising. As you continue reading the article, we will tell you more about the application’s working manner, but before we begin discussing how this extension may affect your browser, we should mention it is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Our researchers decided to do so not only because of possible advertising content but also because of the way this tool could be distributed. Apparently, it might be bundled with other unreliable software, and this is another reason we doubt Adblocker For Youtube’s reliability. If you do not think it is worth to take any chances with the PUP, we recommend erasing the add-on with the instructions located below the text.

Besides the application’s official website called youtubeadblock.net, the extension is available on both Chrome Web Store and Firefox Add-ons websites. Nonetheless, our researchers say the PUP could be distributed through other channels that might be not as legitimate as the mentioned sites. While researching Adblocker For Youtube, we noticed it might be bundled with other potentially unwanted programs or adware. Therefore, if you received the PUP while installing another program, we encourage you to check it just in case too. The next time you decide to add an extension or install any other tool, we would advise you to make sure it is completely reliable and cannot show you any untrustworthy advertising content, invade your privacy, etc. The user or expert reviews could help you determine whether the software is safe to use, although it is also advisable to ensure it is released by a reputable company that can be trusted.

As we mentioned in the beginning, the application is supposed to block ads and not show them. However, while its description on the official website may say it “does not add own ads,” the software’s End User License Agreement (EULA) document might claim otherwise. According to the Adblocker For Youtube’s EULA “the Plugin may collect and store information from your web sessions that may use to display targeted advertising.” It might mean the extension could be gathering information related to your browsing habits (e.g. clicked ads, visited web pages, search queries, and so on) so it could show you tempting ads. The problem is such content would most likely come from the software’s third-party partners, so there is no knowing whether the ads would be trustworthy. In other words, there is a chance they might redirect you to potentially dangerous web pages.

It impossible to say what content the user may encounter while clicking such ads, for example, the third-party website could suggest installing other PUPs, adware, browser hijackers, or other unreliable software. We do not say all provided advertisements could be harmful, but some of them might be. Another thing you should know about Adblocker For Youtube is that besides anonymous data it could collect personal information as well, for example, “information from or about pages of social media websites you visit.” Same as the anonymous data this information might be shared with the third party too. As add-on’s Privacy Policy explains, your personal data could be used “to help YouTube AdBlock extension communicate with you about our offers and those of our marketing partners.”

If you do not want the application to continue collecting any information related to you or receive any targeted ads, we recommend removing the PUP. It can be erased rather quickly from the browser’s extension settings. No need to worry if you have no idea how to find such settings; just have a look at the instructions added at the end of the text and complete the provided steps. The other way to get rid of Adblocker For Youtube is to get a reliable antimalware tool and scan the system. After the scan, the software should display a list of detections with details about them and a deletion button, so it is a good way to find out what threats could be hiding on the system. Not to mention the tool would allow you to erase them all without any effort.
