How do I report ads on YouTube? (All kinds)

One of the most streamed and visited platforms on social media is YouTube. YouTube is visited by over 2 billion registered users every month and viewers watch billions of hours of video every day. It is for this reason that most of the video generators place ads on their YouTube videos. Sometimes these ads can be repetitive, irrelevant, or inappropriate commercials and so viewers may want to report these ads. It is useful to remember that viewers have the right to report them. Here’s a quick guide to reporting ads on YouTube.

Viewing Ads on YouTube Located in the video

To report an ad in the video, follow the steps below.

  • Find ad settings. You are at the bottom left.
  • From left to right you will see the word “Display” and a counter showing the time remaining, as well as an “i” button with a circle around it. This is the “Why this ad?” Button.
  • Click on “Why this ad?” Button: Provides information about why you are seeing this particular ad.
  • Then there are 2 options. First, click on the “Ad Settings” link and go to the ad settings or preferences of your Google Account.
  • The second option is to click “Don’t see this ad again”. If you click “Don’t see this ad again”, it will no longer appear and you can tell Google why you didn’t want to see this ad.
  • You will see 3 options. “Inappropriate”, “Irrelevant”, “Repetitive”. When you’ve made your choice, click the circle button next to it, then click Submit.
