YouTube Ad Skipper is an extension that auto skips ads after YouTube provides a skip ad button. It does not block an ad.

Image from store YouTube Ad Auto-skipper
Description from store A browser extension that automates skipping ad on YouTube. This is not an ad blocker; it just automates the process of clicking on the "Skip Ad" button on YouTube. This is basically useful when you are watching a YouTube video (or a playlist), and an ad starts playing. YouTube allows you to skip the ad after 5 seconds, but if you can't be bothered to click it yourself (or you are AFK), this extension clicks that button for you. Configurations can be set per channel. Did you know: YouTubers are paid 50% of the revenue for any ads playing on their videos. You can use this extension to play ads longer (or not skip) for channels you want to support, or skip them entirely for some. ========= New in version 2.0 ============= ‣ Ability to stop countdown to skip ad. Some ads just grip you and you want to watch it till the end. Now you'll see a countdown before the ad is skipped and a button to end the countdown. ========= New in version 1.0 ============= Ad Skipper now has so much more to offer: ‣ You can now set how long to play the ad before skipping (as fast as 0 seconds). ‣ Mute ads automatically Unlock these features with a support of just 3 cups of coffee a year (USD $7/yr). The original core feature is and will always remain FREE!

  • (2024-04-03) New Journey: I like it but I don't understand the need for the developer to track/obtain the following information: * Personally identifiable information (For example: name, address, email address, age, or identification number) * Financial and payment information (For example: transactions, credit card numbers, credit ratings, financial statements, or payment history) * Authentication information (For example: passwords, credentials, security question, or personal identification number (PIN)) There are no settings available in the free version which would require any kind of authentication credentials such as a pin, password, security question or otherwise. I believe it's probably only collected in the event of paying for the paid version. I see it's via Stripe. I have a stripe account, so I understand that aspect of it. Explanation: To upgrade to the paid version you must sign in via your Google account and on that sign in page I see "To continue, Google will share your name, email address, language preference, and profile picture with ad-auto-skipper.firebaseapp.com." That covers the Personally Identifiable Information section, as well as the payment details section. Okay. Authentication information? I don't understand why it's needed. I don't see an option for a PIN or otherwise. Either way, I think this is awesome. Knowing what little I know of "permissions" for Android it makes sense how these three things may be required for a Chrome addon. I feel it's likely above board. I'm not worried about it. The addon works as it says it will. It's awesome! Thank you!

  • (2023-02-10) Ashil Shah: Thank you for this, it easily skips adds and you can watch the videos without giving any input
  • (2023-01-03) Grey: Absolutely garbage. Poorly built, tries to charge you money for basic features, puts an annoying button under your videos which directs you to the premium version, and reminds you to purchase it at every opportunity. There is another extension, "Tweaks for YouTube", which provides everything this extension does and much MUCH more, without charging you a penny. In comparison, it makes this extension look like a middle school project.

  • (2022-07-07) Lyle Ratchford: basically any skippable ad with the counter can be skipped five seconds after it starts but with thin work if its paused so if you pause the start of the ad five seconds later it skips it

  • (2022-01-20) They call me Zhenya: I love the extension because it doesn't block ads but skip them, so you still support creators. A few days ago there was a youtube update and the extension stopped working. The creator FIXED the extension and it's up again, love you!
