Video Ads Blocker Removal Guide

Do you know what Video Ads Blocker is?

Video Ads Blocker is promoted as an ad blocker for YouTube but, truth be told, this application does nothing to stop video ads playing before a video as well banners being shown at the bottom of a video. Hence, this application is next to useless and, therefore, you should consider removing it. Moreover, the ads that it shows can come from unknown entities, so there is no telling whether they are safe to interact with. For more detailed information, please read the entire article.

Let us jump into this program’s functions. As mentioned in the introduction, this browser extension is promoted as an ad blocker for YouTube that will supposedly block those annoying video ads that are played before a video as well as the banner ads that pop up below a video while it is playing. We all know how annoying these ads are and this ads blocker claims to fix it. However, the trust is that it does not do nothing of this sort. Ironically, this program is dedicated to showing commercial ads as opposed to blocking them. It was set to show banners, coupons, pop-ups, and so on. Needless to say, these ads can be annoying and intrusive, but, most importantly, they can redirect you to websites that can feature malware downloads that you can install accidentally. It injects the banners and other types of ads when visiting any kind of website. It can also turn random web text into hyperlinks that are direct to promoted sites.

Furthermore, we believe that this application might collect information about you to customize the ads. Typically, such applications can obtain information such as your IP address, Internet Service Provider (ISP) domain name, operating system type, browser type, and approximate location, among other details. The developers can use this information for geotargeting purposes. Hence, they can show you somewhat customized, region-specific ads that may be interested to click. Video Ads Blocker’s developers get paid per click, so they have an interest in providing you with relevant content. Nevertheless, this does not mean that the ads suddenly turn safe.

As far as this program’s distribution methods are concerned, there is some interesting information that we want to introduce you to. Apparently, Video Ads Blocker used to have a dedicated distribution website at However, this site is no longer active. But, what we can tell you is that trying to download this program would provoke a pop-up to appear and almost force you to download different software. Nevertheless, you can get the installer that allegedly featured Video Ads Blocker. When installing it, the installer offers to install a program called Mobogenie that was classified as adware. Interestingly, when you think that you installed this ad blocker you installed a legitimate program called Adblock Plus from It is funny that a website that was supposed to feature Video Ads Blocker installs an unrelated but legitimate program. The real Video Ads Blocker is actually bundled with an adware program called GreatSaver, and both of them are included in an EzDownloader software installer. This installer is featured on a site at to which you can get redirected to from other shady websites.

In closing, it is evident that Video Ads Blocker is a useless and undesirable piece of software. It does nothing but shows ads while claiming that it can block ads on YouTube. Its developers make money off online advertising, but try to trick users into getting it. Therefore, if you got it on your browser, then you should remove it as soon as you can. Please see the guide below on how to delete it.

In non-techie terms:

Video Ads Blocker is a fake ad blocker that ironically shows ads as opposed to blocking them. It is claimed that it blocks ads on YouTube specifically, but does nothing of the sort in real life. What it can do, however, is show pop-ups, banners, coupons, and other types of ads on random websites you may visit while browsing the web. Therefore, this program is unreliable and should remove it, especially if you got it accidentally.
