Youtube ads getting through

Youtube ads are playing all of a sudden, both the intrusive video and banner.

Hi,

Try to set the Privacy Guard to the Strict mode:

Go to Security and Privacy Center (green checkmark or under three dots menu) ->
Privacy Guard -> Settings -> Strict Blocking


It should help because in general we use less strict Basic or Balanced modes.

At £11.99 per month in the UK for YouTube Premium, you would have to be using it a hell of a lot to even consider that.

Or, Individual • Annual • $119.99 Discounted price when you buy 12 months up front.

There are some youtube ad blockers, but I don't know if they would be able to install them on Avast Secure Browser. Or how effective they would be.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.12.6044 (build 22.12.7758.768) UI 1.0.741/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

THANK YOU!!! :3
