Following an ad-blocking crackdown, YouTube is explicitly targeting third-party apps, often on mobile devices, that allow viewers to bypass ads.

YouTube announced today that it is “cracking down on apps that violate YouTube’s terms of service, specifically ad-blocking apps.”

Users will see an error message “The next content is not available in this app” or may encounter “cache issues” when trying to play content through these third-party apps.

YouTube takes strict actions against third-party apps that block ads

YouTube Premium, which reached 100 million subscribers in February, is offered as a solution for those who prefer an ad-free experience.

The Google-owned video platform says it only allows third-party apps to use its API when they adhere to the terms of service of the company’s API services.

From now on, the company will take strict action against clients who violate these policies.
