How To Stop TikTok Ads On YouTube – 6 Methods With Steps

How To Stop TikTok Ads On YouTube – 6 Methods With Steps

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

Below, we’ll explore the step-by-step instructions to get this done quickly and explain why these advertisements appear when you are watching a video.

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 them on your free YouTube account. 

The ironic thing is that these adverts 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 related advertisements 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.

How do I stop TikTok and shorts on YouTube?

  • Open YouTube.
  • Tap your profile picture.
  • Tap “Get YouTube Premium.”
  • Select the preferred payment method.
  • Tap “Buy.”


  • Go to the YouTube Premium website using your preferred web browser.
  • Click “Get YouTube Premium.”
  • Select payment method.
  • Click “Buy.” 

After you purchase the premium membership through the available payment options, YouTube will stop showing you TikTok or any other ads while you are watching clips.
