I want see an ad that YouTube showed me days ago. Can I do that? How?

  • @pnuts Thanks for your reply but that will not work because Youtube not show the same ads when you reload a video (web page).

The most obvious answer for this would be "there is no element for this in any UI, so this isn't possible".

However: We know that Google stores previous interactions with ads. And thanks to privacy laws, Google is required to tell what data it stores about us. Now, there isn't any element regarding this on Google Takeout, but you can use this contact form (or, once GDPR in in practice, contact their data protection officer) to get the data.

  • I just used this form to ask for a recent ad delivered via youtube. We'll see what they provide, if anything. Commented Feb 27, 2022 at 18:01


See Your recent ads section at the bottom of the page. There you find a list of ads you have been presented with recently.
