Enable Adblock Plus in incognito or private mode

In Safari, private mode doesn't disable extensions, so there's nothing special you need to do to use Adblock Plus (ABP) in private mode. However, extensions don't always run in private or incognito mode by default. You may need to enable them. To ensure ABP will work in private or incognito mode use the steps under the browser you are using:

Chrome
  1. Enter chrome://extensions in the address bar.
  2. Under Adblock Plus in the extensions list, click Details.
  3. Scroll down and click the toggle switch next to Allow in incognito.
Firefox
  1. Enter about:addons in the address bar.
  2. Next to Adblock Plus in the extensions list, click the three dots and select Manage.
  3. Scroll down to Run in Private Windows and select Allow.
Edge
  1. Enter edge://extensions in the address bar.
  2. Under Adblock Plus in the extensions list, click Details.
  3. Scroll down and click the option next to Allow in InPrivate.
Opera
  1. Enter opera://extensions in the address bar.
  2. Under Adblock Plus check the box Allow in Incognito
