YouTube background playback protection bypass

Occasionally we receive reports mentioning that the YouTube application on mobile phones may continue to play music even when minimized, removing the need for users to join YouTube Red.

We focus our efforts on issues affecting confidentiality and integrity of user data - this issue does not meet that criteria. We don’t consider background music playback protection issues as security-sensitive, and we won't file bugs for those issues as a result. Such reports are not eligible for reward or credit under Google VRP.
