YouTube is now working on a new action against people who use ad blockers to skip ads while watching videos on the platform. They have a new rule that gives users three chances before they get blocked from watching videos with their ad blockers on.
If you use an ad blocker, YouTube will hint at you, and show you a warning. The warning has three boxes, and each time you watch three videos in a row with the ad blocker on, you get a strike. If you get three strikes, YouTube will stop you from playing videos.
Here’s Youtube Suggestion
To avoid this, YouTube suggests that you either turn off the ad blocker or allow YouTube in your ad blocker’s settings. They might also suggest signing up for YouTube Premium, which is a paid service that removes ads. If you think you were unfairly warned for using an ad blocker, you can report the issue and challenge the warning.
Meanwhile, there are several users who use ad blockers because YouTube has been showing more ads in one video lately. In the past, there used to be only one ad, but now there are two or even 10 unskippable ads in one break.
YouTube makes money from these ads, which helps them offer their services for free to many people around the world. It’s fair for YouTube to ask people not to use ad blockers because the money from ads helps them run the platform and provide high-quality video streaming to billions of users. If you don’t want ads, you can choose to subscribe to YouTube Premium, which offers an ad-free experience for a monthly fee.
Additionally, Google has recently confirmed that it’s delaying the launch of the Find My Device network. According to the latest information, several users are now getting unknown tracker alerts on their smartphones that automatically warn them if somebody is monitoring their location with a nefariously placed tag.
