What is YoutubeAdblocker?
YoutubeAdblocker is advertised as a tool that will help you get rid of the advertisements that appear at the beginning of every YouTube video. That is how the application is promoted on its official website youtubeadblocker.com. However, if you try to download the program from that webpage you will be presented with a completely different software, usually Smart Media Converter, DefaultTab, Mobogenie or some other potentially unwanted application.
We do not recommend going forward with the installation of any of the programs from youtubeadblocker.com as it is clear that it uses false advertising in order to trick computer users into downloading unwanted software. If, however, you have already installed the program on your PC you should delete YoutubeAdblocker as soon as you can.
How does YoutubeAdblocker work?
If you have already acquired YoutubeAdblocker you will certainly notice some changes. Your browsers will be flooded with useless data such as pop-up ads, video ads, banners, sponsored links and more. As YoutubeAdblocker usually comes bundled with various adware you will not be able to browse the Web without constant interruptions. Moreover, because of all of this excess data your Internet speed will considerably slow down and some pages will take ages to load.
That, however, is not all. The worst thing about ad-supported programs is that they may present you with false information. Adware applications do not endorse webpages that they promote which is why you could be exposed to corrupted links. If you land on an unsafe webpage you may unwittingly infect your PC with malware or spyware. You could also be tricked into sharing your personal details by entering some fake lottery or survey. The main purpose of adware is to make money by generating web traffic. It does not matter at all to the developers of the programs what pages they promote. YoutubeAdblocker is one of the programs you should avoid if you want to keep your system and your private data safe. You should eliminate YoutubeAdblocker from your computer in order to return to secure and uninterrupted browsing.
How to remove YoutubeAdblocker?

The anti-malware tool can also terminate YoutubeAdblocker and other PUPs automatically.
