How to block ads from a specific company on YouTube
« on: April 29, 2017, 10:56:04 am »
So there's this app called "Hooked" that does scary text message stories and they're apparently throwing a ton of money into advertisement currently as I've seen ads for them on multiple social media platforms recently. Problem is these ads scare me and they usually play at night which makes it hard for me to sleep. I blocked the company itself on instagram and twitter which solved the issue but I can't figure out how to make them stop on YouTube

I've already went to my google account ad settings but they don't let you block certain companies :/ I block "horror films" as that's the only thing close that they'd let me do but these ads are still playing

I don't mind ads so I don't really need to do a full ad block, I just this one company gone. I also watch YouTube via the app on my iPhone so idk how to use ad block for that anyways

You probably can with Adblock's filter system but honestly i'd just go with using it to block all the ads. Much less hassle that way.
