Turn off personalized ads

Creators who are part of the YouTube Partner Program have the option to disable personalized ads. If you plan to turn off personalized ads, we recommend disabling them in YouTube Studio and not in AdSense.

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio.
    • Note: Any content that’s marked as made for kids will automatically have personalized ads turned off.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. Click Channel.
  4. Click Advanced settings.
  5. Scroll to the bottom section Advertisements.
  6. Check the box for Disable interest-based ads. 
    • If you select this option, personalized ads will not be shown on videos on your channel, such as ads based on a viewer's interests or remarketing ads. This may significantly reduce your channel's revenue. In addition, earned action reports and remarketing lists will stop working for your channel.
