Summary

Our Add-on enables the function of blocking anything you'd like. Block separate videos, users or whole channels with only one click! Naturally, the add-on supports regular expressions to ensure you the best customisation possible. And another thing: WE DO NOT COLLECT ANY USER INFORMATION AT ALL.

We would also like to state why the Add-on requires these permissions.

Access your data for www.youtube.com:

  • needed for removing users/channels you have blocked on YouTube™, adding the 'x'-button, etc. (rather obvious)

Access browser tabs:

  • needed for keeping track of the YouTube™-Tabs and the Add-on setting page tab

Store unlimited amount of client-side data:

  • needed for blocking an unlimited number of users/channels
