Not blocking Youtube ads LG G4

Postby Sionist23 » Fri Sep 25, 2015 12:13 am

Hello community!

Adblock Plus has successfully blocked ads from my Youtube app on my LG G4 until recently. I think stopped working around the time of the most recent OS update. My Adblock is still configured to use a proxy when I'm connected to my home WiFi and at work, however the Youtube ads keep pouring in (it seems like every other video I watch). I even removed the non-invasive ads option to see if that would help.

I know if I root my phone I will have other options for removing ads, but I'm trying to avoid that because my last phone would not update once I had "modified" my OS by rooting it. I'm sure Stage Fright isn't going to be the only vulnerability for Lollipop and I want to be able to patch my phone when updates come. I'll root my phone if it comes to that but I wanted to ask you guys first to see if you had any suggestions.

I'm running Android version 5.1
YouTube version 10.34.57

probably you also updated your YouTube app, because the newest versions provide ads via https which ABP (as a proxy) can not block

I did update my Youtube App. So you are saying that ABP can't block the ads because they're coming in through an encrypted route?
