Reminder to install ublock origin on your browser :)

Install SponsorBlock if you watch a lot of YouTube!

Install AdAway if you have a rooted android phone

Blocking ads is self care and helps give your brain a break <3

If you're afraid of not supporting content creators, remember that the revenue they get from ads is absolutely minimal and if you were to donate three cents to their patreon per month you'd probably be giving them more money than your views' worth on YouTube

Donating directly to projects you like is much better than subjecting yourself to ads, both for them and for your mental health

@dragon ublock origin does all of these

also it works on firefox android :)
@dragon There are two apps named similarily, ublock, which is a scam and stole the name of the real app, ublock origin

links to chrome/firefox extension thingies are on te github page and the whole thing is FOSS

@alexandria oh sorry I misunderstood yeah uBO is great but AdAway also removes ads inside of apps like the popups and banners and stuff

@dragon Ahhh, it's a vpn thing

I always treat those with suspicion haha

@alexandria @dragon I thought adaway used the host file method on rooted devices?
