It's not just that. Ive bin digging into the "how much real privacy we have today" thing and I came across quite some stuff. Pretty much big brother in the 80's is completely back at it where our goverment is in pretty much everything you use on a daily basis.
A VPN is questionable too. A VPN provider can simply be cohersed into broad tapping of all it's communications. Your ISP of your phone is storing pretty much everything you do with it of a minimum 6 month retention. So where you was, with who your called and even in the event of something serious enough they are able to tap into your live whatsapp, videocalls and what more.
Whatsapp advertising with it's E2E stuff is bullshit. Goverment can obtain access just like that. People are mass followed and the public is'nt even aware of the fact. There's simply no privacy anymore.
What's wrong with supporting creators? I pay the $15 a month for no adds, rather than complaining about add while watching free content made by someone who partially relies on add revenue to keep creating content. Are people really that entitled?
Anyway, if the terms of agreement state "no add blockers" and people use them anyway, they are thieves. Plain and simple.
I don't get why YouTube doesn't just ban them. No tolerance.
They claim they can just stop using Youtube anyway, so Youtube should help with that goal.
There are no Youtube Alternatives, these are all small fry in comparisonCome on, users! Fight back!
