Summary
✓ Permissions: like common ad-blocking extensions we do need default permissions on every website to remove ads or popups for example on embedded videos and Youtube itself.

ⓘ About
Adblock for Youtube™ is a content filtering and ad blocking browser extension which blocks all ads on Youtube™.
It allows users to prevent page elements, such as advertisements, from being displayed. 
Banner, Ad-Clips or even preroll ads you usually see before the actual video on Youtube are blocked by this extension.

Features:
 + blocks ads, banner and popups
 + blocking of ads on external sites which load Youtube
 + prevent preroll ads from loading on Youtube
 + you can also remove annotations from videos and musics (see options page).
 + loads videos and YouTube website faster.

The technology is simply based on adblocking filterlists which blocks external ad urls on Youtube. We do not change anything on the website itself.

Safety
Risk impact

Adblock for Youtube™ requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Adblock for Youtube™ if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Adblock for Youtube™ has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
