    because your phone only has 2Gb of RAM, I don't recommend you to install many apps which tend to work in the background, for example, AVs
    consider the posts from others, there are some nice apps

    I assume you don't root your phone

    - try not to install apps from outside playstore
    - download bitdefender and perform a scan every 1-2 months, then uninstall it
    - I recommend: Naked browser (free): it has an adblocker, which supports EasyList format -> you can add whatever you want to that list to strengthen adblocking, popups, malwares,... the downside is that it doesn't support element hiding you should add: EasyList without element hiding rules
    this is the instruction how to add the blocklist to your phone: naked browser resource blocking

    the app is minimal, much faster and consumes less RAM than the resource-hog google chrome. Playing a video on chrome is laggy but not laggy in naked browser

    EDIT:
    there is no way to block ads on youtube in the official youtube app without root, they fixed it
    perhaps, adguard can but using VPN sucks a lot of battery
    only rooted phone with xposed can

    personally, I use videoder (a youtube alternative) or play videos in your browsers with adblocker

    you can install it here
    or here
    the UI is ugly, you should get used to it, it can be hard in the beginning
    for example, to open the menu bar, long-press the back button
