How it works
This extension uses some API tricks to access age-restricted videos from YouTube anonymously. As a fallback (in case that the API bypass methods does not work) an open source Account Proxy Server is used. This allows you to watch all types of age-restricted videos on YouTube and YouTube Music without age verification and without the need to be signed in.
All videos will be unlocked automatically!
You have two options depending on the browser you use. You can install the script as a Userscript in all popular browsers or as a Browser Extension in some supported browsers listed below.
Unfortunately, our Firefox extension was removed from Mozilla add-ons and disabled on Edge add-ons due to a violation of their terms of service.
As a result, we can no longer provide updates for it. However, the extension can still be installed manually.
We're looking for ways to make this process easier.
Install a Userscript Manager of your choice. We recommend Tampermonkey or Violentmonkey.
Install Simple YouTube Age Restriction Bypass by clicking this link.
No further actions are necessary. All age restricted videos are automatically unlocked. Make sure you reload YouTube after installation.
In order to unlock some video information, requests are handled through a proxy server. On the server side, the request will be authenticated with the credentials of an age-verified account at YouTube. The source code of the proxy server can be found here.
No credentials are sent from your YouTube account! The only info that the proxy server receives from you is the Video-ID and some non-user related information like the version of the YouTube website. The used proxy server at
youtube-proxy.zerody.one does not log IP-Adresses or Video-IDs. If you have set a different proxy server instance, then the operator's log policies apply.
To have an overview of the number of requests and possible problems, anonymous usage statistics are collected. These statistics are also not user-related and can be found here.
For some videos it is necessary to route the video data files (hosted at

The following browsers are supported:
And many more!
Simple YouTube Age Restriction Bypass works on Android with the browser version of YouTube m.youtube.com in combination with the Userscript.
Only a few browsers such as Firefox and Kiwi Browser currently support extensions. Tampermonkey can be installed there.
Bromite supports userscripts natively. The script can be installed via Settings > User Scripts.
Simple YouTube Age Restriction Bypass also works on iOS/iPadOS Safari with the browser version of YouTube m.youtube.com in combination with the Userscript.
You need to install the free extension Userscripts for Safari from the AppStore to install the Userscript.
We use Rollup with Babel to transpile into a single userscript file and maintain support for older browsers.
