Need to search for something on YouTube but get distracted by recommended videos? Use "No Distractions" for YouTube to hide distractions and stay on task!

NOTE: requires Safari version 14 or higher.

"No Distractions" for YouTube is a Safari App Extension I built to help myself. It lets you take control over your use of YouTube instead of letting the YouTube algorithms control you...!

It does this by hiding video recommendations and the 'Shorts' link on the front page, the 'up next' videos that appears when you watch a video, and the ads that are inserted in your search results. It also hides comments.

When you want to see the hidden elements, you can toggle them on by clicking the extension icon.

The app is open source and does not collect any data. You can inspect the source code, report bugs, and suggest additional features or improvements on: https://github.com/ulyngs/open-source-no-distractions-for-youtube

Great, 1 note...

This works great -- only thing is it still leaves the grid of suggested videos once your video finishes.

But otherwise, best option I've found for Safari so far. Thank you!

Good point, I hadn't thought about that! I've tweaked the app to also hide the grid of suggested videos after a video finished, and have submitted an updated version to the App Store - it should be up in a couple of days! :)

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

Great app. Calms the mind.

The only reason I've given it four stars is that I do read Youtube comments. I'd like to be able to select what parts I want on or off without having to toggle it for every separate video I watch.

Basically I wish it weren't all or nothing.

Excellent, title says it all

Very nice cheap extension, works like a treat! Thank you for doing this! Absolutely worth it to stay focused on what I want, not what YouTube thinks I want! 😃
