Safety
Risk impact

Adblock for Youtube requires a lot of risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Adblock for Youtube if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Adblock for Youtube has earned a fairly good reputation and likely safe to install.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

This used to work perfectly with no issues. I used it for years but recently it hasn't blocked any ads whatsoever. Definitely trying something new.

Only blocks the first ad and sometimes it doesn't even get that far.
