    I dont understand. I have no interest in TIK TOK nor anything similar to that.
    Yet all I see EVERYWHERE is TIK TOK advert. Specially youtube.

    What the fuck is it?

    It's a new Vine with focus on music. I found one of the ads on YouTube to be very annoying (one minute long) and offensive (a random chick was treating her boyfriend like merchandise). Fuck them.

    They paid a lot of money to buy out Musical.ly and then paid more to spam their adverts everywhere. Honestly what you see in the ads is what you get. It's a social media app where users "lip sync" (I use that loosely because even their ads are poorly synced) to songs and skits. Then they upload those for others to watch.

    Like those ads are EVERYWHERE!

    Random apps with ads have ads of tik tok, play store ads and specially on youtube.

    Everyone's getting them. They are literally everywhere, and pop up so often. I started using adblock on pretty much anything just because it annoys me so badly. They are being so heavily spammed on every single part of the internet that nearly makes you feel followed.

    Surely this overdone..
    How is this allowed through the ASA(Advertising Standards Authority) in the UK?
    Or does the ASA not act upon online advertisements?

    I havn't such ads around anywhere luckily. On PC i might use adblock but i mostly listen to youtube and w/e on my xbox so no adblock there, yet no tik tok ads so far further.

    I had no idea that this was even happening because I block ads on basically everything I use. Glad I do, i see enough memes about it on Instagram.

    Likely, I considered myself lucky for holding out so long without seeing them. Guess my luck had to run out some time. I hope your luck will continue.

    Just add a block list to your router. Then you can have network wide ad blocking.
