Description: FreeTube is a YouTube client for Windows, Mac, and Linux built around using YouTube more privately. You can enjoy your favorite content and creators without your habits being tracked. All of your user data is stored locally and never sent or published to the internet. FreeTube grabs data by scraping the information it needs (with either local methods or by optionally utilizing the Invidious API). With many features similar to YouTube, FreeTube has become one of the best methods to watch YouTube privately on desktop. Available for Windows, Mac & Linux thanks to Electron.
Browser Extension - not working in this portable due to registry issue
FreeTube is supported by the Privacy Redirect and LibRedirect extensions, which will allow you to open YouTube links into FreeTube. You must enable the option within the advanced settings of the extension for it to work.
- Download Privacy Redirect for Firefox or Google Chrome
- Download LibRedirect for Firefox or Google Chrome
Please, note that FreeTube Portable must be already started before using the browser extension.
