Getting started with Adblock Plus

Not sure how Adblock Plus works? You've come to the right place!

Adblock Plus is a free browser extension that blocks annoying online advertisements and protects your privacy by eliminating trackers on websites you visit. ABP requires minimal customization and we should start blocking ads as soon as the installation is completed.

Here is a full user guide to getting started with Adblock Plus:

Install Adblock Plus

To install, visit and click the Get Adblock Plus button. This will take you to a page with the right version of ABP for the browser you are using. For more instructions, see How to download and install Adblock Plus

Support us (only if you'd like)

Every time the ABP desktop extension is installed will see our contribution page. Feel free to close the page by clicking the "x" on the tab at the top of the browser if you've already paid or prefer not to contribute at this time. Do I have to pay for Adblock Plus?

Pin the icon to your toolbar

For easy access to Adblock Plus, make sure to pin the icon to your toolbar: Hide or show the Adblock Plus icon on your browser's toolbar

Adjust your Settings

If Adblock Plus is installed, we are already blocking ads. But if you are using our desktop extension, you may also want to adjust some specific settings. Note: For the Safari browser, some of these settings are not available: Why is my Adblock Plus for Safari on macOS different?
