Do you want to stop TikTok ads from popping up every other second on your favorite YouTube videos and restore your viewing experience? 

To stop TikTok Ads on YouTube, wait for an ad to pop up, select “Stop seeing this ad,” and mark it as “Repetitive,” “Irrelevant,” or “Inappropriate.” You can also install an Adblocker extension or app on your device to block TikTok ads on YouTube videos.  

In this detailed guide, we’ll explore how to stop TikTok Ads on YouTube and explain why they appear when you are watching a video.

Why are TikTok ads appearing on YouTube videos?

Why are TikTok ads appearing on YouTube videos?

If you see TikTok ads on different YouTube videos, this usually happens when Google ad targeting has put these ads on your free YouTube account. 

The ironic thing is that these ads are based on your search results, and if your intent is to look for more videos related to the TikTok platform, Google considers it to be the first place for ad equity. This results in more and more TikTok ads showing up on YouTube and other Google platforms 

While YouTube offers free access to its vast library of videos, it must also make money to maintain its services. By showing ads to free users, the platform generates revenue that helps it cover the costs of running the platform and paying content creators.
