    I am trying to find out if this will circumvent the YouTube sign-in requirement for age-restricted videos?

    I have been here:
    https://github.com/FreeTubeApp/FreeTube#readme
    https://freetubeapp.io/
    ...and run Google searches, but not finding any answer. All I've read seems to suggest it will, but nothing for sure. That would be my main reason to use the app, as Google/Youtube seems to have any vid the least bit controversial behind this wall, which makes giving out this sort of info a bitter pill I'm not willing to swallow.

    There is addon for Firefox called Ageless, but it doesn't work for every age-restricted video. For those videos I usually just download video using youtube-dl script and watch offline. I doesn't really encounter that much of age-restricted videos on YouTube, so this is enough for me.

    Yeah, I already tried 'Ageless' and a few similar addons. It worked for awhile, but don't no more. Already tried the various circumventions mentioned on various sites:
    https://techcult.com/wiki/how-to-bypass-youtube-age-restriction/
    Again, worked for awhile, but don't no more. That's why I was interested in finding out if the FreeTube app was a viable solution.
