How does Video Ads Blocker work?

This is a typical PUP that promises you one thing and does the exact opposite. Who would not want to get rid of the annoying commercial advertisements while watching YouTube videos, right? But schemers know this exactly and that is why they come up with such ideas and useless programs that are actually used to promote third parties just like this application has been found. Apart from annoying and disruptive pop-ups, banners, and in-text ads, this PUP can also redirect you to questionable pages. These commercials can mostly be about promoted programs that may not be reliable at all. If you click on these ads or end up on these pages, you could infect your system with more PUPs or malware threats as well. But this is not the only thing that can happen when you engage with unsafe third-party content. You may open new tabs with malicious pages that do not have big red labels claiming that they are malicious. Obviously, these pages are usually there to scam you. For example, there can be fake webshops pretending to have products up for sale that you have been actually looking for on the web previously.
