We have tools that can help you learn more about the ads you see and the advertiser placing them. By clicking on the three dots that appear next to an ad on Search, YouTube, and Discover you can visit My Ad Center which includes basic information about the advertiser, including whether or not they are a verified advertiser. My Ad Center allows you to block sensitive ads and learn more about the information used to personalize your ad experience. You can also opt to see fewer ads in sensitive categories such as alcohol, dating, gambling, pregnancy and parenting, and weight loss.
To give you even more transparency over the ads you see and why, yesterday we announced the launch of the Ads Transparency Center, a searchable hub of all ads served from verified advertisers where you can see the ads an advertiser has run, the formats of those ads, and more.
