How Do I Get Rid of Ads on YouTube Mobile App?

Denise Wilkinson

Are you tired of being interrupted by ads while using the YouTube mobile app? You’re not alone.

Fortunately, there are several ways to get rid of them. In this tutorial, I’ll explain how to remove ads from the YouTube mobile app.

Option 1: YouTube Premium

If you’re a frequent user of the YouTube app, you may want to consider subscribing to YouTube Premium. This paid service offers ad-free videos and exclusive content. Here’s how to sign up:

  • Open the YouTube app on your mobile device.
  • Tap on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select “Get YouTube Premium” from the drop-down menu.
  • Follow the instructions to sign up for a subscription.


The cost of the subscription varies by country and region. You can cancel at any time.

Option 2: Ad-Blocking Apps

If you don’t want to pay for a subscription, another option is to use an ad-blocking app. These apps are designed to block ads from appearing while you’re using various apps on your mobile device, including YouTube. Here’s how to use one:

  • Download an ad-blocking app from your device’s app store (e.g., Adblock Plus or AdGuard).
  • Install and open the app.
  • Follow the instructions provided by the app to set it up on your device.


Using an ad-blocking app may violate YouTube’s terms of service, and some content creators rely on ad revenue for their livelihood. Consider supporting your favorite creators by watching their videos with ads enabled.

Option 3: Disable Personalized Ads

If you don’t want to block all ads, you can choose to disable personalized ads. Personalized ads are based on your search history and other data collected by Google. Here’s how to disable them:

  • Open the YouTube app on your mobile device.
  • Select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.
  • Tap “Ad personalization.”
  • Toggle off “Ad personalization.”

This will not remove all ads, but it will show you less relevant ones. You can always toggle personalized ads back on if you change your mind.

In Conclusion

There are several ways to get rid of ads on the YouTube mobile app, including subscribing to YouTube Premium, using an ad-blocking app, or disabling personalized ads. Consider which option is best for you based on your needs and preferences.
