Allow sensitive ads on my YouTube channel and videos

You can opt your channel in to sensitive AdSense ad categories and enable ads in those categories to appear next to your YouTube videos. Opting in to sensitive categories is voluntary and may help you increase revenue by taking advantage of advertiser demand.

Here's how to allow ads from sensitive categories:

  1. Sign in to your AdSense account and visit the Allow & block ads tab.
  2. In the sidebar, click Content Host.
  3. Click the Sensitive Categories section at the top of the page. 
  4. Toggle the Blocked/Allowed switch for the opt-in categories at the bottom.

Changes are automatically saved on selection, and should be reflected on your channel within 24 hours.
