  • The app does not show many ads.

Cons

Dentex YouTube Downloader

The APK is less than 5 MB, but it downloads a plugin to download videos. It offers a unique interface and the query you type goes straight onto YouTube to show the results. Furthermore, when you tap on a video, it doesn’t play, it shows the download qualities available. To play the video, you can touch on the video on the download page.

Pros

  • Unique design.
  • Dentex YouTube downloader can convert the videos into MP3.

Cons

  • It downloads a plugin to download the videos.

Not very good apps

I also tested WonTube, NewPipe, TubeGod, Vuclip, TubeX, YouTube Downloader for Android, YT3 YouTube Downloader for Android, and VidMate, but those apps either ask for sensitive permissions like accounts info, device identity and get access to contacts, or do not download the videos at all. I would recommend you to download one of the above YouTube video downloaders for Android to download the YouTube videos securely.

In conclusion

By asking for sensitive permissions, apps are stealing your data and selling to other companies. Always keep yourself away from these apps. I hope the post best YouTube video downloaders helped.
