YouTube has implemented a function that prevents use ad blockers on its platform. A pop-up alert informs you that adblockers are not allowed and asks users to allow ads or opt for a paid subscription, YouTube Premium.

The pop-up notice states: “Ad blockers are not allowed on YouTube. You can avoid advertising with YouTube Premium and creators can still get paid from your subscription.”

YouTube’s decision sparked immediate backlash from some users, who expressed frustration on social media. Some even said that they will stop using the very popular platform rather than watching advertising.
