Subject: Tech: How to deal with YouTube Blocker ????
Recently. when I have tried to access a YouTube music video a screen appears over the video area and blocks the video from playing . The blocking screen carries the message "A privacy reminder from YouTube, a Google company" The screen blocker over videos offers generalised information about how Youtube will collect information from your computer to help it target advertisements but it also says "We'll need you to do this in order to continue using Google services." The end of this blocking process is a button which needs to be clicked saying " I AGREE" It seems that Youtube are determined to get me to give them permission for something before allowing me to access videos. I do not want to give a vague blanket permission to anyone which allows them to deal in information about me. Am I being too cautious or, if not, is there any way round the blocking device?
