Add a new filter list

Adblock Plus requires filter lists to block ads. A default filter list based on your browser's language settings is automatically activated when you install Adblock Plus. It blocks ads from the most popular (often English language-based) websites. However, it does not block ads on less popular national websites. For example, if you live in Germany you should subscribe to the national German filter list. This filter list is detected as "EasyList Germany + EasyList".

Note

As a recommendation, you should avoid adding too many filter lists to Adblock Plus. Adding too many filter lists slows down the ad blocker and, therefore, your browsing.

APRIL 2024 - IMPORTANT UPDATE 

If you use Chrome and are updated to Adblock Plus (ABP) Version 4.0 or later, support for third-party filter lists (including custom filter lists) has been removed due to changes related to Manifest V3. We plan to return the option, along with any filter lists you were subscribed to, in a future version soon. In the meantime, as a workaround for custom filter lists, you can add your custom filter rules to the My Filter List section on the Advanced tab in ABP's Options.
