YAF mutes swearwords on YouTube videos. Choose which words you don't want to hear and let YAF take care of the rest!

How YAF works:

  • YAF uses the closed caption files attached to YouTube videos to find swearwords and their timings.
  • YAF will mute the video when the words you have selected show up in the caption files.
  • YAF is only as good as the caption files for each video. If the caption timings are off, then YAF may not perform well.
  • If there are no caption files attached to the video, YAF will be unavailable for that video until captions are added.
  • YAF only works on videos.

Dont listen to the other reviews. This actually work and I didnt believe it at first, you have to go in the settings and set it to what you want to be censored. Now I am able to watch youtubers who swear and not be able to hear them.
