How to block ads on YouTube?
YouTube is a huge platform in which the number of online video content is really shocking. Whatever entertainment type you are looking for, you will find it here.

The quality content you can enjoy on YouTube for free is very surprising. Of course, nothing is really free without some cost, and usually, it is in the form of advertisements.

YouTube is shown with banner ads that fill the video with ads, pre-roll ads that play before the video, mid-roll ads that play during the long videos.

Most of these can be skipped after three to five seconds, but there are some ads that you have to see completely.

While we understand the economics involved in these advertisements, there really are no cars showing that you have a desire to buy, especially when you want to watch videos of only two minutes' recipes.

The good news is that you can block the advertisement in YouTube based on the type of device used to consume your online video content.

Is Blocking Ads on YouTube Legal?

Blocking ads on YouTube, or blocking ads on any other site on the internet, is not illegal.

Website developers are able to find that an ad block is installed in a browser, and they can pass by blocking these ad content. But most sites do not do this because the result is a very bad user experience.

Like all moral apprehensions, the right to choose the final option is in your hands only.
