Say goodbye to those useless, annoying ads that interrupt your browsing experience. Disable those pop-ups, video ads, flashing banners and much more. Blocking these distractions means faster loading of pages. With the help of Adblock Plus, avoiding malware is easy. It blocks the intrusive ads by minimizing risks of malvertising infections. If you block ads, then you will disable the companies from detecting your online activities. With Adblock Plus, you can also create your own list of filters. All these filters are almost an open source. It is up to you if you want to remove them and add some other.

What is Adblock Plus?

Adblock Plus is a free extension that allows you to - among other things - block annoying ads, disable tracking and block domains known to spread malware. Available for Android, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Maxthon, Opera, Safari and Yandex, Adblock Plus uses filters that you choose to block all unwanted elements.

Created by Wladimir Palant in 2006, Adblock Plus is an open source project licensed under GPLv3. In 2011, Palant, together with Till Faida, founded Eyeo to make its development sustainable.

How does Adblock Plus work?

Adblock Plus itself has no functionality; it doesn't block anything until you "tell" it what to block by adding external filter lists. Filter lists are essentially an extensive set of rules that tell Adblock Plus which elements of a website to block. You can add any filter list you want. For example, you can block tracking and/or malware (technically, Adblock Plus under default settings already has some level of tracking and malware protection but you can enable more protection). You can also create your own filter lists. Almost all filters are open source, therefore many filter lists have been created by Internet users.

Filter lists enabled by default include:

  • An ad blocking list selected based on your language (EasyList)
  • The Acceptable Ads list

These are enabled to get you started. You can remove them or add others - it's up to you.

EasyList corresponds to your browser language and is aimed at disabling ads that are considered to be intrusive by our community of users. Please note, Eyeo GmbH did not draft EasyList and therefore has no right to, or control over, its content. Visit the EasyList Community for more information.

The Acceptable Ads list displays ads that comply with the acceptable ads criteria agreed upon by our community of users. The list is maintained by Eyeo GmbH.
