YouTube is the most popular video hosting site with millions of active users visiting it every month. YouTube makes money by showing ads before or during its videos. Some of that money goes to content makers that create and share their videos. However, ads on YouTube may be aggressive and irritating. While on a computer you would use an ad blocker on your browser that, depending on the ad blocker, may remove ads from YouTube videos, YouTube app for Android won’t let you do the same. This article describes several ways to watch YouTube videos on Android without ads.
All of us encountered sites asking us to subscribe to their notifications. While that can be a useful functionality in some cases (when an email provider is informing us of new emails, for example), most of the time notifications from websites are superfluous and not especially useful. There are also sites that try to force users into turning on their notifications and using these notifications to later spam users with questionable links, ads for shady sites, prompts to download fake software updates, and so on.
