Why am I still getting targeted ads though I've blocked all content tracking on YouTube?

Posted

I'm using Firefox and have blocked all content tracking on YouTube. I haven't signed in with my Gmail account. Next to YouTube, I have a tab open for Typeform. I'm now getting ads for Typeform on YouTube. What am I getting wrong? What data are Google gathering on me?

I would say you should contact Google support for YT issues as that is coming from them not from the Browser. And once your login you gave them permission already.

Thanks a lot for explaining this. What I am confused about is that I was not signed in to Google or YouTube... I'll contact them and ask.

You can look at the uBlock Origin extension.
