Add or remove a custom filter

Adblock Plus comes with a set of standard, pre-made filter lists. If you want more control over what you see and what you don't see when you browse the web, you can manually block an element or write your own filters.

Note: Only our desktop extensions for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Opera support custom filters.

 

Add a custom filter:

  1. Click the Adblock Plus toolbar icon. What if I don't see the Adblock Plus icon?
  2. On the ABP toolbar menu, click the gear symbol.
  3. On the options page that opens, go to the Advanced tab.
  4. Under My filter list section paste your custom filter list into the box.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Refresh any tabs or windows that are already open to ensure the change appears.

 

Remove a custom filter:
