Block all ads

If you choose to block all ads, Adblock Plus will block annoying ads and ads that are considered nonintrusive (Acceptable Ads). To learn more about Acceptable Ads, visit the Acceptable Ads webpage.

Note

By turning off the Acceptable Ads feature, website owners and content creators that abide by the Acceptable Ads criteria will lose ad revenue.
