It’s not a bug of the service. YouTube first launched this ad format in January 2018, and as of today, it has spread worldwide. Non-skippable ads can appear anywhere in the video and first, those ads were as long as 5 seconds, but now they can last for 15-20 seconds. It’s bad enough when you’re forced to watch unwanted advertising, but what’s even worse are the quality of advertising and targeting. YouTube users complain about seeing anti-vaping adverts over and over again though they’ve never been interested in vaping before. Another infuriating type of advertising is health and beauty products advertising as it doesn’t have time to slowly move to the point and just throws at you close-ups of human faces and body parts. Yew.
This is a tricky question. You can watch YouTube videos without ads using an ad blocker or using a third-party client, we will teach you how. But there is no way you can remove ads from a native YouTube app because it won’t work. To remove ads from apps that use HTTPS connections AdLock has to launch a MITM attack and replace their security certificates with its own security certificate. But starting from the last Android update to Nougat all apps with API Level 24 and above, and YouTube is among those apps, don’t trust third-parties’ certificates authorities for secure connections. That means YouTube app just won’t launch if we try to replace its security certificate with AdLock’s one to remove ads.
